Scallop Kamameshi


I bought this Hotate Meshi no Moto (?Scallop Thing To Make Rice?) mix from Marukai. It was on sale for $4.99.

I don't know what I was expecting to find when I opened up the box, but it wasn't this.

It took me awhile to Google Translate the instructions, but from what I could decipher, you wash and rinse 2 cups (rice cooker cup) of rice. Then you add in the contents of the bag along with enough water so that the water level measures 2 cups. I also added in some shiitake mushrooms.

It was good . . . very scallop-y flavored. I'm glad that I tried it. But I doubt that I'd buy it again.

Ha! I bought that about a year ago thinking it was scallop dashi, and when I opened the box, I looked at the package of liquid and scallop bits and thought, WTH??? Then I used it in lieu of dashi for kabocha, and it was very good. Since then, I discovered iriko dashi, which is even better for making kabocha (my aunty's recipe -- Kay's mom).

Aunty, actually Landon had it circled in the Marukai flyer. Don't think I woulda got it otherwise.

Hahahaha, Lorna . . . that's what I said! I gotta look into iriko dashi now. Sounds interesting.

It actually was, Izsmom.

Maybe I missed it, Kat.
