Spread plastic wrap out and place the tarako in the center. Very loosely cover with plastic wrap, and don't wrap it tight.
Microwave both sides for 15 seconds (my microwave is 500 W) until it looks like the picture. Adjust the cooking time accordingly. It tastes better when the center is left uncooked.
Place on hot rice. The profile picture shows it arranged in a bento lunch box with shio-konbu (seen as the black strips).
Here's the tarako working hard as a bento filler. The recipe for this striped nori bento is Recipe ID: 2105597.
Story Behind this Recipe
Cooking tarako is such a pain since it's easy to overcook, but this can be easily prepared in a microwave!
This might be common knowledge but I uploaded this recipe for those who didn't know about this tip.
There's not a lot to this "recipe" but try this as a topping for rice since the tarako soboro is so crumbly and that's actually not a good thing for bento. Cut tarako into chunks, and half-cook them. They are moist and delicious. Keep your eyes on these when microwaving!
