I make this meal about once a week because it is so simple and satisfying. Aside from prepping the rice to go with it, it takes less than 10 minutes to cook (it may take longer if you are using a large piece of salmon).
I served this with Takoyaki (squid balls that are store bought in the freezer section of Hmart). It was easy to heat up in the toaster oven. I also added a drizzle of Japanese mayonnaise and bonito flakes).
However, 99% of the time, it is served with just a side of whatever veggies you have laying around. I chopped up raw red peppers this time. It is sweet, crunchy and juicy and just the thing to brighten up the meal. Other times, I serve it with dried seaweed, lightly salted steamed broccoli or string beans.
I sprinkle a little Furikake ( a Japanese blend of seasonings, usually with sesame and dried seaweed) on top of the rice because we had some in the pantry today.
What are your favorite “go to “weeknight dinners when you are short on time?
