Onigiri is THE Japanese sandwich par excellence! Prepared with vinegar rice dumpling, it is then wrapped in a Nori seaweed, in different forms. Most often, triangle shaped but there are many mussels to vary the pleasures.

Asian Rice Japanese
Course: Side dish
Preparation: 15 minutes


  • 1.   When the rice is still warm, add rice vinegar. Place a sheet of food film on the work surface, wet your hands and take a nice portion of rice. Compact the rice and shape it into a triangle. Surround the onigiri with the stretch film and adjust its shape.
  • 2.   Place the onigiri in the center of the mat nori sheet. Take a sharp knife, cut from the corner of the onigiri to the corner of the leaf, on both sides at the bottom. Cut in the center at the top and fold the nori leaf. Cut the excess of nori leaf, wet to stick.
  • 3.   Make a strip of 2 cm wide and 10 length of nori leaf, and place around the nail to finish the onigiri.
