Rice & Donburi

Winner of CBS SF Most Valuable Blogger Awards and Broiled Salmon & Salmon Onigiri (Rice Ball)

Making broiled salmon is much easier than most people think, simply pre-heat toaster oven to 400 degrees and bake it for 25-30 min. Our family signature sauce with broiled salmon is yuzu soy sauce. The citrus soy taste blends perfectly with fatty salmon and white rice. With the leftover salmon, I usually make salmon onigiri and enjoy them the next day with my children for lunch.
