I have been seeing this everywhere in Japanese cook books lately – Rice Sandwiches!
Some people call them “onigirazu”, but I like to call them simply rice sandwiches 🙂
The best thing is that they are even easier to make than sushi nori rolls or “onigiri” rice balls. I think because I have grown up making sandwiches, it seems easier to imagine making a sandwich rather than squashing it into a ball!
Here is a super quick 1min video showing a rice sandwich that I made for my kids:
- Cutting board and sharp knife – I used my new Kyocera ceramic knife (I bought this online from the Japanese shop called “Kitchen World” on Rakuten Global Market. They ship internationally if you want one! Super popular in Japan)
- Plastic wrap
- Nori seaweed
- Sushi Rice (rice mixed with the special rice vinegar for sushi)
- Your favorite ingredients for inside your sandwich – hints: tuna/salmon, avocado, cucumber, red and yellow capsicum. In this video I made mine with marinated sesame sardines and avocado.
