to taste
Nori (dried seaweed sheet)
as needed
Denbu (sweet pink-colored semidried fish flakes)


1. Sprinkle the seasoning mix onto the piping hot rice and mix quickly. I made 3 rice cooker cups of rice (540 ml) and used 2 packets of "Sushi Taro" seasoning mix.
2. In a dish, spread out the shredded omelet. Cover with the sushi rice. Sprinkle with denbu and then put in more sushi rice.
3. After adding in the sushi rice to the dish, use a rice paddle to push it in tightly.
4. Place a plate on top of the dish and flip it all over to complete the round head.
5. Use salmon roe to make Anapanman's cheeks.
6. Use scissors to cut the nori and make the eyes, eyebrows, and mouth and put them on.
7. Lastly, place cheese on top of the cheeks and it's finished.
