I absolutely love seafood salads; I order this at every sushi restaurant. One day a friend of mine was teaching me how to make a seafood bowl, the same thing as a seafood salad except for the rice she added. I went home one day and looked for the recipe online. I spent 50 bucks on this because I had to buy three different types of seafood: salmon, tuna, and squid. These three combination alone cost 23 bucks. I bought all the other ingredients that I remembered from eating at sushi restaurants: salmon, tuna, squid, seaweed, lettuce, scallion, daikon, pickled carrots, pickled radish, salmon roe, and ginger.  All there is to the sauce is ponzu/yuzu sauce, water, brown sugar, lemon/lime/orange juice.n6002002_40153834_91181

I woke up today and did not know what I was going to make for lunch. I normally don’t cook at all–I just like to eat. I looked online for a recipe but most of the recipes I looked at were too complicated. I called a friend and she told me to boil apples with water to make the broth. The other important element is miso sauce (mirin/light soy sauce base to make the broth flavorful–I bet it’s soysauce and water and sugar). I boiled the udon noodles in a seperate pot with a strainer. Once the udon noodles were ready, I poured them in to a bowl and added the miso sauce along with all the other ingredients that I like. I am a seafood person so I added shrimp. In order for an udon noodle to be an udon noodle, do not forget to add enoki mushrooms, daikon (radish sprouts), scallions, and dry seaweed. All other topings is up to you. I spent 15 bucks on everything–it fed 7 people!
