Put the smoked salmon on some plastic wrap. Mix up some rice with shiso leaves, cream cheese, and white sesame seeds. Put this mixture on top of the salmon.
Shape into balls inside of the plastic wrap.
Make the leaves of the pumpkins from the shiso leaves and the eyes, nose, and mouth from nori. Wrap the balls up with plastic wrap again to finish!
Story Behind this Recipe
I brought these to a Halloween party and they were super popular! They're so easy! They're my family's favorite.
If you wrap each of them individually in plastic wrap, they're great for a party without needing any cutlery. The key is to use the ragged edges of the leaves for the pumpkin leaves. If you don't add the face parts, you can use these for parties other than just Halloween parties!
