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 tablespoons salmon flakes
Your favorite veggies
1 teaspoon yuzu flavored sesame seeds or yuzu juice
Pour hot water to the fill line of the Japanese noodles.
Keep covered for 3 minutes.
Drain while rinsing in cold water.
Place the ramen or similar Japanese noodles into a bento box (or plate.)
Decorate with shrimp and salmon flakes.
Garnish with veggies.
Drizzle with yuzu juice or sprinkle with yuzu flavored sesame seeds.
