Ladies and gentlemen, all hail donburi, one of the most cheap, versatile meals known to man.  Feeling hungry, but don’t want any of the leftovers in your fridge?  No worries!  Make up a bowl of rice, toss some rice vinegar/sugar on it, put whatever the hell you want on top (I used salmon in this case, but the ideas as to what you could put on it are literally limitless), and boom, easy, new meal that you have to put little effort into!

Salmon Sashimi Donburi

Ingredients 

  • between half to one pound of salmon (depends on how much you like fish, any other protein can substitute)
  • rice (I use short grain sushi rice)
  • splash of rice vinegar and sugar

First off, take whatever amount of rice you like and cook it according to the instructions on the rice packaging, using whatever you have handy – rice maker, steamer (which I used), pot, whatever.  (in this case, I used 1.5 c rice to 2 c water.)  Once the rice is done, let it cool off a bit, and scoop out however much rice you want, and drizzle a combination of rice vinegar and sugar on it (basically makes it sushi rice).  Toss the rice with a wood paddle, to aerate and spread the vinegar mixture.

Meanwhile, cut up your salmon into thin slices (I used the long, thin knife in my knife block, and no, I have no clue what it’s called), and put on top of the rice.

Boom.  Dinner.  1.5 c of rice ususally makes about three servings, but how long it lasts in this case is up to how much you make, and what all you have on hand.
