Another of my leftovers lunch recipes for one. I had about an ounce of teriyaki salmon left over from the night before, as well as some cold Japanese rice. This is a common Japanese leftovers dish, but I did not look any of them up. I just threw together what seemed reasonable to me. To go with my rice, I decided to make some teriyaki chicken wings and I threw in some Japanese pickled cucumber as my salad.

I am making broiled salmon with dill tonight and I wanted a starch dish to go with it. I thought apples and rice. Then, I thought green onions and tarragon would fit in nicely.

Jan suggested Israeli couscous as the starch dish to go with my Easter lamb. Ptitim, or “Ben-Gurion rice,” has only a nodding acquaintance with the fine grained couscous of the rest of the Middle East. It was created in the early years of the nation of Israel as a rice substitute.

The rest of my meal is so fancy, plain rice seemed bland. A few weeks ago I made confetti rice with Chinese chives. That technique should work just as well with scallions (green onions).
