Been wanting to do something similar since I first visited e-obento. Now I finally get my chance. And before you guys say anything, yes, I was able to eat them, sleepy little faces notwithstanding. 😛
â€¢ Hot & Spicy Jellyfish
â€¢ Kani Surimi
â€¢ A strawberry container of soy
â€¢ Quail egg babies in their inarizushi cribs with a blanket of ebiko, as inspired by e-obento
Made the mistake of stuffing too much sushi rice in the aburaage pockets; had a hard time picking them up with my chopsticks. In the end, I had to eat them with my fingers. Lesson learned: Just because it’s fun stuffing aburaage, doesn’t mean you should get carried away. ^_^;;
Ebiko is shrimp roe. Yes, it’s that explosive orange coating around California maki.
