Ingredients:
7 small tart shells
100g (3.5oz.) milk chocolate for the bears
Ganache Bathwater
* 40g (1.4oz.) white chocolate

sugar sprinkles of your choice

Directions:
1. Put chopped milk chocolate in a pastry bag and place it over hot water to melt. Snip off the end and pipe it into the mold. Then put in the fridge or freezer to set.
2. Put whipping cream in a bowl. Place it over hot water until warm. Put chopped white chocolate and leave for a minute until soft. Then mix well. Add liquor to taste if you like.

If you want to take this to the place where there is no fridge, you can use regular chocolate instead of using chocolate ganache.

Boiled Whitebait Rice Bowl (Kamaage Shirasu Don / Donburi) - Video Recipe

This is the way I love to eat Shirasu Don! Of course you can eat it in the way you like ;) There is no rule. hehe

My neighbor gave me delicious Kamaage Shirasu (boiled whitebait). If the fish is frozen, you can defrost it in the fridge overnight. Or 2 hours out from the fridge. Or place it in a Ziploc Bag (make sure water doesn't come in) and place it under running water for 15 minutes.



---------------------------------
Boiled Whitebait Rice Bowl

Difficulty: Super Easy
Time: 5min
Number of servings: N/A

Ingredients:
a bowl of cooked rice
boiled whitebait
Daikon Oroshi (grated Daikon radish)
thinly sliced Shiso leaves
soy sauce

Directions:
1. Defrost Kamaage Shirasu (boiled whitebait) as needed.
2. Top a bowl of rice with plenty of Shirasu.
3. Garnish with grated Daikon radish (grate the top part of Daikon because it is sweeter) and a few drops of soy sauce: this is called "Someoroshi" because the radish is dyed with soy sauce. Then place sliced Shiso leaves to finish.

If you like, as most people in Japan do, you can top with a fresh raw egg yolk, chopped scallions, and more ;)
