Rice, salted salmon in teriyaki sauce and cry baby cucumbers

A rather simple bento lunch, rice with ume and sesame seeds, salted salmon cooked in a teriyaki sauce, some cry baby cucumbers (these are quickly becoming my second favourite way to eat cucumbers after nuka - scroll down for the recipe) and because the beans in the fridge had gone bad when I wasn't looking, I stuck some frozen peas and corn (blanched) in the corner to stand in for veg.

I was surprised to discover that frozen peas and corn actually taste good on their own with no sauces or anything, even cold.  Although, when I opened the bento they had gone everywhere  and made a right mess of things.

Although I like cooking teriyaki sauce (soy-sub, sake, salt, honey, and a few drops of rice vinegar usually do the trick), I don't think it goes well with this salmon.  The salted salmon is already too strong in taste, all the sauce did was to highlight the fishy-ness of the fish (which is the part of the fish I like least).

The background is an onigiri rice ball with some of the salmon for filling.  The Captain, not a big fan of seaweed, said don't bother with the nori wrapper.  He won't be saying that again as now he knows it's not just for taste, it's to keep your hands from getting all sticky.
