Kindergarten bento – Japanese Worcester sauce (14/Mar/17)

Menu: Fried aji (horse mackerel) with Japanese Worcester sauce, Tomato & komatsuna omelet, Boiled broccoli, Goma-konbu, Rice

Apple mousse & banana for dessert

Leftover fried aji from last night’s dinner. 

I’m sure my daughter will eat the fried fish especially because it’s served with this tasty, irresistible Japanese Worcester sauce. The sauce is often used for deep fried fish and cutlets made with egg & bread crumbs (such as croquette and tonkatsu), and probably as popular in Japan as tomato ketchup if not more. It is much sweeter and starchy than the authentic Worcester sauce.

The one I have at home is from the most well known brand called “Bull-Dog,” and this product in particular has 50% less salt than the regular one. Maybe it’s just one of those marketing tricks, using more sugar or something alike instead of salt, as it tastes exactly the same… Well, let’s just believe it’s slightly healthier than the regular one, shall we?
