It’s no secret that I am obsessed with Bento Sushi.
We indulge – on average – at least once per week (or once per grocery run), and it’s quite possibly the reason why our grocery bills are creeping a little higher each month.
(Don’t care. NOT willing to give up my Bento Sushi fix!)
Last week, my husband came home with what can only be described as the BEST maki roll I had EVER had. Seriously. Not an ounce of exaggeration here. Ladies and gents, I give you:
A cucumber, avocado and seaweed salad maki topped with succulent lobster, a generous sprinkle of tobiko and crispy onions and finished with a drizzle of spicy sauce.
First, there is actual lobster in the roll – not humble pollock masquerading as the real thing. And when I say lobster, I’m talking about chunks of sweet, tender meat that are in sharp contrast to the crispy onions and salty tobiko. Furthermore, the underlying flavour is punctuated by fresh seaweed – and is rounded out with the perfect amount of heat, courtesy of the pungent, spicy sauce.
In other words, if there was ever an apt description for “party in your mouth” – this would be it. (more…)
