Chazuke(チャズケ) is a quick simple meal that consists of rice and toppings submerged in green tea. This dish is a good way to use up leftover rice. It is commonly eaten as a late night snack or as a quick breakfast.
I have been meaning to try chazuke for a while so I made sure that I had some leftover rice and teriyaki salmon from the night before. Overall it was a little plain and flavourless...
I was in such a rush to take some photos that I forgot to garnish it with nori and sesame seeds.

- 1 ounce cooked salmon
- 1 inch nori (cut thinly)
