Sea Flavours Bento
For my bento today, I have several things coming from the sea, hence the title :o)
I cooked a small piece of salmon (below the shrimp) and used the oil released by the fish to fry a couple of shrimp I still had in the fridge as well as another sea related item, i.e. sea aster leaves. I never made those before but they are advertised as a healthy green that goes well with all type of fish. They can be eated raw in a salad, blanched or stirfried. In this bento I used shredded raw leaves to top the potatoes and stirfried ones with spring onion to accompany the brocoli rosets. Nothing special in the fruit department today, just a couple of sweet apricots and physalis (cape gooseberries).
