Mentaiko (Spicy Caviar)
Have you ever eaten Spicy Caviar (Mentaiko) ?
Mentaiko is cod roe slowly marinated in chili pepper and salt.
Its spicy and rich flavor goes well with pasta, potato,
and especially rice, making it a favorite for putting inside Japanese rice balls (Onigiri).
My father gave me high-quality Mentaiko (absolutely expensive...)
Open the box
Take off the lid of a plastic box
There are three Mentaikos in it
Pick up one Mentaiko and put on the plate
Generally, we eat Mentaiko with something like rice,
but I like to eat it only, not with something.
Hum... Mentaiko is my favorite ... !
