4 cups Steamed/Cooked Japanese Rice
8 Ume (Pickled Plums) or Grilled Salmon
Steam or Cook the Japanese rice, the rice should be firm and slightly sticky.
Allow Rice to cool for about 2-3 minutes.
Dip hands in water and sprinkle salt on the palms.
Place 2-3 Tablespoons of rice into palm of hand.
Toss the mound back and forth between your palms to make a triangle shape.
Place a strip of Nori around the base of the onigiri vertically to cover both sides about 1/2 of the way up.
Add Soy Sauce (Or not, your choice) and Enjoy!
A nice, quick, on-the-go type rice snack!
You can really add anything you'd like into the middle of an onigiri. Peanut butter is actually a favorite of some people.
Some other filling ideas include:
Nozawana (Turnip-like vegetable)
or anything else you're in the mood for.
