It’s delicious but really I could not finish one portion, yes thank’s to the amount of mayo. So, let’s just share. Mentai Rice, it’s actually very easy to make as long as you have kitchen blow torch or use the oven to broil the mentaiko sauce. The sauce itself is made from mayonaise, preferably Japanese mayo like Kewpie and mentaiko (pollock roe / cod roe). If it’s hard to find then simply replace it with tobiko (flying fish roe). Please do not skip the fish roe. Anyway, I bought the mentaiko from Tokopedia around IDR 270k for 500 grams, that’s a lot, I know. Alternatively, take a look at Papaya Supermarket or other big supermarket as mentaiko is kinda hard to find here.

I made 3 dishes with this Mentai sauce, the first one is the one with crabstick served with rice that mixed with nori powder, you can also use furikake. The second is nori rice with salmon aburi. Lastly, sweet and savory beef with garlic butter shirataki noodles. Well, the last one is definitely my favorite.

The other option, go for garlic butter rice. Anyway, have a try and let me know which one is your favorite.
