Salmon and Shrimp Ramen Salad Bento


Lemon is the standard brightner for fish. But yuzu (Japanese citrus) is fantastic, too! For summer bentos, cold ramen noodles serve as a beautiful base for salmon and shrimp. Add a few vegetables and you've got an easy balanced meal in a bento box.  

  • 1 Cup O' Noodle or similar Japanese noodles like Mini Bunashimeji Mushroom Udon
  • 3 shrimp
  • 3 tablespoons salmon flakes
  • Your favorite veggies 
  • 1 teaspoon yuzu flavored sesame seeds or yuzu juice  
  1. Pour hot water to the fill line of the Japanese noodles. 
  2. Keep covered for 3 minutes.
  3. Stir gently.
  4. Drain while rinsing in cold water.
  5. Place the ramen or similar Japanese noodles into a bento box (or plate.)
  6. Decorate with shrimp and salmon flakes.
  7. Garnish with veggies.
  8. Drizzle with yuzu juice or sprinkle with yuzu flavored sesame seeds.
