I'm starting a new series called "What's on my rice." Here I will be posting the endless possibilities of how a rice fiend like myself enjoys a simple bowl of gohan..
I recently discovered having my store bought Uni with a drizzle of Soy Sauce and very good Extra Virgin Olive Oil..
Rice was 3/4 of the inexpensive stuff and 1/4 glutinous (Mochi-gome) rice. I've been cooking my rice this way ever since my family's visit. Not shown but I also had it with some crispy Nori. Mmm, crispy Nori...
Since it was Super Bowl Sunday I seriously considered making my version of Scotch Eggs (a more manly meal?) and even dressing one into looking like a football but after realizing I'm really not much of a sports fan it all started to feel like a lot of work. I have all the ingredients though so I may make some tonight (sans the football idea).
I got these at Nijiya Market btw. Very fresh at $7.99 and very bright yellow-orange with a medium firm texture. Size varied a lot but it was all good. Learn more about Uni as I did here.
