This is another ‘Takikomigohan’ dish that can be cooked using a canned fish. This time I used a Canned Red Salmon. I wanted to add some Hijiki, but Hijiki is quite hard to find where I live. So, I added Dried Chopped Wakame as they are, without rehydrating it. Wow… I was amazed at how easy it was to prepare and the great result.
2 cups (*180ml cup) Japanese Short Grain Rice
1 Canned Red Salmon *210g
1 tablespoon Sake (Rice Wine)
1 small piece Ginger *grated
1 tablespoon Soy Sauce
1/4 teaspoon Salt
2 tablespoons Dried Chopped Wakame
1 Spring Onion *finely chopped
Toasted Sesame Seeds
- Wash Rice by stirring it thoroughly in water with your hand and drain the water. Repeat this a few more times until water flows through clear. Place it into the rice cooker’s inner pot.
- Drain the Canned Salmon, and add the liquid to the rice. Add Sake (Rice Wine), grated Ginger, Soy Sauce and Salt. Then add Water up to the 2-cups-marking. Gently stir.
- Remove unwanted large bones and skin from Salmon, break into chunky pieces, place on the rice. Sprinkle Dried Chopped Wakame over the rice. *Note: Break into smaller pieces if the Wakame pieces are large.
- Press ‘COOK’ button to start cooking. When the rice is cooked, let it steamed for 10 minutes. Then loosen and mix gently.
- Sprinkle with some finely chopped Spring Onion and Toasted Sesame Seeds.
