Tarako Onigiri Bento

tarako onigiri bento
Was in a rush today so I ended up making a simple lunch - tarako onigiri and an apple. It was back to the collapsible bento boxes, as well, as I was out all afternoon and didn't want to lug bulky bento boxes around with me. 

As my tarako (salted cod roe) had been sitting in the fridge for a while, I pan-fried it, cut it into chunks, and used it as an onigiri filling, along with a little kewpie mayonnaise. Delicious! I was also thrilled to use my plastic disposable onigiri wrappers which separate the nori seaweed sheet from the rice onigiri - just like the ones you buy at Japanese convenience stores! YH thought I'd bought the onigiri, so I guess it looked "professional" enough :)
