Easy-Prep Salmon Flakes Using Canned Salmon - Eat Japanese Food Wherever You Are

I used canned tuna to make salmon flakes. You can use it as a filling for rice balls or to sprinkle on rice.

Ingredients

Canned salmon
1 can (213 g)
Soy sauce
1 and 1/2 tablespoons
Mirin
1 tablespoon
Sugar
1 teaspoon

Steps

1. Open the can and lightly drain the excess liquid.
2. Simmer the salmon and seasonings in a frying pan and heat, first over low, then increasing to medium flame. It should become flaky.
3. When used as rice ball filling, it tastes great as is, or mixed with a bit of mayonnaise.
4. Mix the salmon flakes with mayonnaise and use as sushi fillers. I rolled mine together with slim sticks of cucumber.
5. Here, I rolled them with some avocado.

Story Behind this Recipe
