Tricolored Quail Eggs for Hanami Bentos

Tricolored Quail Eggs for Hanami Bentos

I made these last year for our annual hanami (cherry blossom viewing) bento and my family loved them, so this year I made them again, but a bit differently. They're good simply marinated overnight, so you can have them for breakfast the next morning.

Ingredients: 4 servings

Quail eggs
12
☆Colorful furikake rice sprinkles (spinach flavor)
2 sachets
☆Water
1+1 teaspoons
☆Salt & pepper mix
a small amount
☆Colorful furikake rice sprinkles (tarako flavor)
2 sachets

Steps

1. Put 4 quail eggs in one plastic bag, and 4 in another. To one bag add some colorful brand furikake (spinach flavor), water and smoked salt & pepper mix. Add some Colorful brand furikake (tarako flavor) to the other bag with water and smoked salt & pepper mix. Let the eggs marinate overnight.
2. After marinating the quail eggs from 1/2 to 1 day, wipe them dry with a paper towel and skewer the eggs onto toothpicks, 3 colors per toothpick as shown here. The photo shows eggs that have been marinated for one full day.
3. This is the furikake I used.
4. This is the hanami bento I made in 2012.

Story Behind this Recipe

I made a new version of last year's quail eggs that got rave reviews.
