Sakura Shrimp Seasoned Rice

Sakura Shrimp Seasoned Rice

The sakura shrimp give off an aroma when the rice is cooking. Since the rice becomes slightly colored, this would be pretty to pack in a bento.

Ingredients: 1 rice cooker cup

Uncooked white rice
1 rice cooker cup (180 ml)
Sakura shrimp
2 tablespoons
Shiro-dashi (concentrate)
1 tablespoon
Salt (when there's not enough sodium in the dashi)
a small amount
Enough for 1 rice cooker cup after shiro dashi is added


1. Wash the rice and then let it sit for 30 minutes in a strainer.
2. Put the rice and the shiro dashi in the rice cooker container, and then fill up with water to the 1 cup line. Taste and if there is not enough salt, add more.
3. Add the sakura shrimp and stir it lightly. Turn on the rice cooker. Since this is rice cooked with other things, after preparing everything, it should be cooked right away.

Story Behind this Recipe

There was a time when we had a lot of sakura shrimp in our home, so I came up with this seasoned rice recipe.
