Labeled as a breakfast item, this was thoroughly enjoyable as a midday, mid-hike meal. The salmon presented as large, hugely flavorable chunks of meat that fully rehydrated. Green onion and seaweed were readily identifiable. The miso was pleasantly salty, although just a little overwhelming by the end of the meal. And glory of glories, my gut did not perform its usual objections to a large portion of tofu!

My main complaint, however, still resides with the tofu. I have little doubt that this is more or less accurate to an okayu prepared in Japan, and it does generally support the expectation of a breakfast. But it cooked up as a kind of soft curd. A soft mush, with chunks of salmon, some rice, and some vegetables scattered throughout.

Entirely subjective! But it did not satisfy my palate. I would have been MUCH happier with this meal as entirely rice-based.

But otherwise, I can absolutely recommend this as something very different from the usual freeze-dried fare!
