Rice Cookers Recipes

Classically Built Onigiri

Onigiri, pronounced oh-nee-gee-ree, is a rice ball that is often filled with a savory side dish and wrapped in nori (seaweed). Some of the common fillers are umeboshi and broiled salmon – just like this recipe!


Ingredients (makes 4 onigiri): 
To Cook in the Rice Cooker: 
  • 2 cups (rice measuring cup) short or medium grain white rice 
  • Water to fill to water level 2 for "WHITE RICE"
For Seasoning Rice
  • 1/2 tsp. salt 
For Filling:
  • 2 oz. salmon filet 
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt 
  • 2 umeboshi (pickled Japanese plum) 
For Wrap (optional):
  • sheets nori seaweed, cut into 4” x 2” each
1

Prepare white rice using the ingredients listed under “To Cook in the Rice Cooker”. For steps to cook "white rice," see here
2

When rice completes cooking, transfer rice to another bowl, sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon of salt and gently fluff with the rice spatula. Set aside.
3

Preheat broiler or oven to 450oF. Place salmon filet on a paper towel and sprinkle sea salt on the surface. Let it rest for 5 minutes. 
4

Grill salmon in broiler or oven for 5 minutes or until well done. Transfer cooked salmon to a bowl and remove any bones and skin. Break into bite-sized pieces and set aside.
5

Remove umeboshi pits with a knife or fingers and set aside. Be careful when using a knife.
6

Cut and place a plastic wrap about 7 to 8 inches long and place in a small bowl. Add a 1/4 of cooked rice on top of the plastic wrap. Place half amount of salmon from step 4 in the center of the rice. Gather the plastic wrap around the rice and make a triangular rice ball by squeezing your hands together lightly. The rice ball should be firm so it does not fall apart, but the rice should remain fluffy and not smashed.  
7

Remove the plastic wrap. Take a nori sheet and wrap the bottom of the onigiri. Repeat steps 6 and 7 to make one more salmon onigiri
8

Make two more onigiri using umeboshi.

Enjoy!
