Prawn Tempura Onigiri Rice Balls

Prawn Tempura Onigiri Rice Balls

I was inspired to recreate this prawn tempura just like the product sold at a famous onigiri shop. There's a whole prawn tempura wrapped around an onigiri. This is worth a try at home. There are two kinds in this recipe.

Ingredients: For making one

Prawn tempura
1
Plain cooked rice
About half of a rice bowl
Toasted nori seaweed
1/2
Bonito flakes version
Salt
a small amount
Bonito flakes
1/2 small sachet
Mayonnaise
to taste
Pickled plum and shiso leaves version
Pickled plum or pickled plum puree
about 1 teaspoon
Shiso leaf
1 leaf

Steps

1. Spread the rice on a nori sheet (like when you make sushi rolls), leaving one edge rice free.
2. Bonito flake version: sprinkle a little salt and cover the center with bonito flakes, prawn tempura and mayonnaise.
3. Pickled plum and shiso leaves version: if using pickled plum, mince first. Spread it on step 1 and place a shiso leaf and prawn tempura.
4. Roll up the nori and rice from one end and it's done.

Story Behind this Recipe
