A base of spaghetti in a basil sesame pesto I had as a leftover of the day before.
chirimen-jako are fish bait of the anchovy and sardine family. They are dried under the sun and can be kept a few days. That’s salty and tasting of fish of course.
The other topping : boiled and skinned
favas (broad beans). And a few ribbons of basil leaves.
Side dish : ginger cukes.
A quick tsukemono : Sliced, cut, rinsed white cucumber. Added sea salt and minced ginger. Mixed well. Let one hour in the fridge.
And advantage of
( shirataki konnyaku noodles) is unlike other noodles, you don’t need to boil them again then chill. All you need is rinsing them in clear water.
The 4 elements of my dish.
A : rinse the

kibinago (silver stripe round herring) are these small mini-fish, often to small to cut them. So frying is the way to go. I’ve seen addition of aonori seaweed for frying and retained the idea.
Rinse the fish. Sprinkle salt and pepper. Heat frying oil. Mix flour, potato starch and aonori (seaweed flakes).
Pass the fish in the mix of flours and fry. Add a little more aonori on top.
Eat them whole, so you intake all the calcium in the bones.
Sides : lettuce with black rice vinegar, sesame carrots, salted
goya (bitter squash) and polished germinated rice.
