【Ingredients】 (5 servings)
・ Cooked rice (ご飯 / Gohan)……1000ｇ (500ｇ per person)
・ Salt (塩 / Shio)……Pinch
・ Nori (海苔 / Nori)……10 Sheets (2 per person) (These are standard-size nori sheets cut into thirds vertically. Each of the cut pieces should be about 25x10cm）
・ Mashed pickled plum (練り梅 / Neri ume)……５tsp
・ Salted konbu (塩昆布 / Shio konbu)……10ｇ
【How to Make】
① Place some of the rice on a piece of plastic wrap and make a depression in the center. Place a bit of the mashed pickled plum (or salted konbu) in the depression and then use the plastic wrap to wrap it all up.
② Form the wrapped-up rice into a triangular shape.
③ Open the wrap up and sprinkle salt evenly over the entire onigiri. Wrap up the onigiri again and firm up the triangular shape. Remove the wrap.
④ Wrap the onigiri in a sheet of nori and then, with the onigiri standing up, decorate by placing a little bit of the mashed pickled plum (salted konbu) on the top.
