Kindergarten bento – Fishy morning (24/Oct/16)

Menu: Grilled salmon on rice, Tofu & seaweed powder omelet, Cabbage & tuna salad, Boiled okura, Cherry tomatoes

Kiwi & western pear for dessert 


When I grill fish, I normally use our fish grill embedded in our gas stove. This morning was the same, I put a glass of water in the fish grill pan (so the fish stays moist not dry), placed two filets of salmon on top of the fish grill net and closed the cover. Put the heat in medium-high, waited 5 minutes or so to cook one side, and flipped the filets, waited for another 5 minutes or so to cook the other side. Everything was going just fine, but maybe because the heat was a little higher than usual as I was in a rush or I put too little water, a small amount of smoke started to emerge. When this happens, believe me that the entire apartment starts smelling very, very, fishy, even if you open the windows or turn up your ventilation to full speed. Although I immediately turned the heat down and saved my precious salmon filet (came out nicely even), the smell inevitably stayed. An hour on, I can still smell the trace of smoky fishy smell in my kitchen, hair and clothes😂
