An Exciting Preparation of Baked Fish

Seafood is so tasty… If it wasn’t so expensive, we would be eating it every night.  It’s awesome when these salmon steaks go on sale at H-Mart for only $5.99/lb!! We buy several packs and store some in the freezer for future use.

Shopping at an Asian grocery store opens up so many new opportunities in the kitchen.  I took a special trip to H-Mart this weekend with my parents.  I could spend hours in that grocery store, just getting lost perusing the endless possibilities in every aisle.

Tonight’s meal features a really simple Japanese dish – Chirashi.  No cooking necessary.  I even got the cooked rice bowls.  Just needed to pop that sucker in the microwave.  Everything else was already prepared.  No effort required at all.  And oh so healthy.  I wish we could eat this every night.  But then we’d be broke.

Ingredients: White rice, seaweed salad, pickled daikon radish, salmon sashimi.
