A Japanese Breakfast

I went to sleep hungry last night and woke up craving something delicious for breakfast. We happened to have some left over Jasmine rice in the rice cooker and a container of salmon roe. Rice with fish eggs is a common breakfast in Japan. When we were in Kyoto, Japan last year I got to enjoy such a breakfast. After visiting the fish market early in the morning we found a neat breakfast spot that served rice bowls with 30+ toppings of your choice. Jerry chose a rice bowl with raw tuna. I chose a rice bowl with fish eggs and sea urchin. The rice and fish eggs were an outstanding breakfast, so was the miso soup and all the deliciously pickled veggie sides. The sea urchin…not so much. I think it was the lack of structure and the mushy texture that put me off the sea urchins.
I usually have store brand corn flakes with almond milk and strawberries, or Ezekiel bread toast and a couple fried eggs fresh from my grandma’s chicken coup with coffee for breakfast, but I certainly don’t mind putting this one into my routine once in a while.

    If you like fish eggs I think you'll really like it. I don't salt my rice so it turns out to be a great base for any flavor.
