Mine, mine, mine!!!

My husband is having lunch out with friends so I made only one bento today. Since I was working for myself and myself alone, I decided to go seafood!

So in the lower tier (on top of the picture below) I have steamed shrimps (see below for my steaming method) seasoned with salt, pepper, cumin and hot chili powder. I also put Garam Masala in the water I used to steam the shrimps. I have also baby carrots. I sprinkled cilantro over the whole thing for color and because I luuuv cilantro.

In the top tier (bottom of the picture) I have leftover tabbouleh, and left over black bean and mango salsa. I used sushi grass to divide the two.

My shrimps were still kinda frozen and I tried to steam them in my little microwave steamer (in the picture below). It didn't work all that well. I'll have to try again with shrimps that are completely thawed out. I finally nuked them a minute to finish the cooking. Hope they aren't too rubbery.

So there, That's my bento of the day. It looks delicious, hopefully it will be.

Happy Bento!

  1. Where did you get this particular bento box? and what size is it? I've been looking for one to buy (to start - I've just been introduced to bento!) and I really like the look of this one.
