We celebrated Girl's Day on Sunday.
I made a chirashizushi of sorts and bought this platter of sashimi to put onto the sushi...
4 slices each of maguro (tuna), hamachi (amberjack), shrimp, ika (squid), salmon, kani-kamaboko (fake crab) and a scoopful of ikura (salmon roe)
Can you believe it was only 980 yen?! (It looks a bit messed up because I had to put it into my backpack...)
I made some sushi rice (add 1 tablespoon of vinegar, 1 tablespoon sugar and a pinch of salt to one cup of cooked rice) and added some diced cucumber and kinshi tamago (thinly sliced omlette)
For each serving, I cut up two slices each of the different fish, layering it between rice, cucumber & the egg...chirashizushi in a cup!
When eating, I drizzled 1 teaspoon of shoyu over the top...looks fancy yet simple to make!
Since Satoshi had to work, he brought home this dessert by Impression Gateau Sucre, it was a rich chocolate cake topped with whipped cream and these chocolate shavings that looked like driftwood.
Thanks Satoshi! If you celebrated, I hope you had a nice Girl's Day!
