First Ikura of the Season

Posted on Monday, September 13, 2010 | 0 comments

      We had the first ikura (salmon eggs) of the season on Saturday, in the form of an ikura rice bowl. While I've been avoiding any and all raw fish while pregnant, the ikura were simply too much to resist. I managed to rationalize eating them in consideration of the fact that ikura are actually caviar, not raw fish. Right? Right. In any case, I thoroughly enjoyed it and didn't get sick, so all's well that ends well! Thanks again Otousan!
