I made this dish when I was on a budget yet had a little extra to spend, after I was too bored of the usual ramen or pasta. I have served it as a sandwich on a french roll, and I have served it over rice. I prefer having it with rice. P.S.: I use sea salt because it does not have the dangers that regular table salt does. Therefore, I can use it generously without feeling guilty.
