Kamaboko Fish Cake Bento Fillers

Kamaboko Fish Cake Bento Fillers

I'm always working on new ideas for my daily bento.

Ingredients: an easy-to-make amount

8 pieces
2 bunches
1 and 1/2 pieces
Sliced cheese
1 slice
Pepper and herbal salt
to taste


1. Cut open one side of each slice of kamaboko to make a pocket. Prepare 8 slices total. Chop komatsuna into 2 cm long pieces, parboil, and drain.
2. Stuff the komatsuna inside the kamaboko pockets, add bacon (sliced into 5mm squares) on top, sprinkle pepper, then microwave for 1 minute (at 500 W).
3. Cut sliced cheese into 5mm squares, top on bacon, then microwave for 1 more minute (at 500 W). Add a bit of herbal salt to taste, then serve.
4. Here's a variation: Kamaboko stuffed with parboiled julienned carrots, pizza cheese, herbal salt, and dried parsley heated in microwave for 1 minute (at 500 W).
