It's a furikake mahimahi bento set because I was able to find fresh caught mahimahi yesterday. Yay! I'm pretty sure I've posted about this "recipe" before but if you missed it, here it is: slather your filet with kewpie mayo, sprinkle liberally with your favorite furikake (aji nori or nori komi is what we usually have), then pan fry both sides until done. I cut my filet into smaller pieces for ease of eating as well as increased surface area for coating with furikake. I actually served it with furikake rice; can you believe they didn't overdose on furikake? Both kids got basically the same bento, with steamed broccoli, carrots and "cherry" tomatoes, but he got golden plum while she got some kind of black plum. Neither is very sweet, although they were sold with Fall names. Oh well. At least we get to see something different than grapes every day.
Notice anything different about the lighting in my photos recently? I moved my picture studio to a different table which I just this weekend discovered to have nice natural Fall season light. So now the light angle is different and it feels fresh to me. I'm super excited about that. Silly, right? ^_^

I am a former research scientist turned stay-at-home-mom of 2 who got started with bento in an effort to help my kids learn that eating healthy and nutritious foods can be fun and cute. I make a bento lunch for my 13yo (8th grader) son & my 9yo (4th grader) daughter every school day, and post the pictures on my sherimiya ♥ flickr photostream. Here in this blog is where I describe each bento, and you'll also get a peek inside our family adventures. Thanks for taking a look, and please let me know what you think ^-^!
