Dinner is Served! Japanese Fish Rice Balls & Edamame Salad


Happy What's for Dinner? Wednesday! This week's meal brought all the flavors of your favorite Japanese restaurant to your kitchen without the need for testing your sushi-grade fish buying skills.

Tonight's meal, Japanese Fish Rice Balls & Edamame Salad, substituted raw salmon for smoked fish to keep crafting it in your own home safe as well as delicious.  Smoked salmon is fairly high in sodium, so make sure to enjoy this dish on a day where you haven't been eating a lot of this ingredient.

The hardest part of this meal for me was the rice! I don't know why, but that small little grain is something I just can't seem to perfect.  If you're like me and get a little stressed out by cooking rice, remember to breathe AND that to make the rice sticky, you really need to have wet fingers.  That being said, I think I'm going to leave all future rice cooking to Mr. Fit Armadillo since he's Indian and can basically cook the stuff in his sleep!
