You can make onigiri, musubi or rice balls, you can add it to your tamago yaki or japanese omelette or regular omelette.Those are some examples and many more on how you can use this Salmon flakes.

Lets starts by putting the olive oil and garlic in the pan.Then start the fire on low setting we wanted to infused the flavor of garlic in the olive oil this will a while to cook just be patient low and slow. Cooking process will about 10 to 15 minutes.


While we wait for the garlic to cook, We can check the other pot for our pasta. When the water boils add some salt and then add the pasta. Cooking time depends on the brand or depends on  the pasta that you have. If you have fresh pasta go ahead and use it. Mine takes about 10-12 minutes to cook.


Once the garlic is cooked you can add the shallots and the chili flakes.This will takes about a minute or two so once they are cooked, Turn of the heat. At this point the pasta is probably cooked.
