Fish Tacos, Deconstructed Bento

Today's bento has snapper fried in pepper and lime juice, next to cabbage slaw tossed with red onion, oranges, cilantro, and cumin. At home we made fish tacos with tortillas and I added sour cream and hot sauce, but omitted that from the bento. We have a lot of fruit in the house right now, so I put some oranges, strawberries, red grapes and kiwi in there. I added some purple carrot discs for color and a purple / regular potato "mushroom" in the center for fun. That's it! Quick and easy.

  7. Lia said it perfectly! And I agree that the little mushroom is a joyful touch...fish tacos are such a treat, and the way you've re-created the dish is so much cuter!
