Very simple yet delicious side dish idea for rice! No wonder a perfect dish for bento lunch box :)

If you wonder how it tastes, it tastes like teriyaki!

Worth to try it out!!!

Simmered Bonito Chunks and Shiitake Mushrooms

Difficulty: Very Easy
Time: 45min
Number of servings: 4

250g (8.8oz.) Katsuo (bonito)
6 Shiitake mushrooms
* 3 tbsp. soy sauce
* 3 tbsp. sake (or white wine)
* 2 tbsp. sugar
* 1 tbsp. grated ginger
* 100ml water

1. Cut bonito into an inch chunks. Remove stems, lightly rinse and dry with paper towels.
2. Put A in a pot. Place the bonito and Shiitake mushrooms. Cover with Otoshi Buta (drop-lid) and cook on medium for 5 minutes.
3. Stop the heat, toss to coat the liquid evenly, then leave to cool to absorb the flavours for about 30 minutes. (If you simmer too much, the fish will lose its flavor.)
4. Strain, then put the liquid back in the pot, and simmer on medium until the liquid is reduced to a thick glaze. (It can easily burn at the end, so please watch out.)
5. Put bonito and Shiitake back in the pot, simmer on medium, and toss to coat the glaze evenly.

Tuna (Maguro) or even chicken is good, too :)
