Infused Black Garlic Salt



Impress yourself by making an onigiri, a classic and convenient Japanese snack, with this recipe featuring our Jacobsen Co. Furikake.  These triangular rice balls satisfy at any time of day as a snack or handheld meal- feel free to swap out any filling or sauce with an ingredient of your choice. This recipe requires an onigiri mold (available at most Asian grocery stores) but you can also use your hands to shape the rice into these delicious pyramids. 

Makes 6 Onigiris


Step 1: Make the Rice! 

Follow the cooking instructions listed on your rice package. Once cooked, cool the rice and begin assembling the filling. You want rice that is warm but not too hot to touch. If using a rice cooker, keep it on the warm setting, but if cooking on the stovetop, keep the rice covered. 

Step 2: Make the Sriracha Mayo! 

Mix the Sriracha and Kewpie until blended. Set aside. 

Step 3: Assemble the Filling! 

Mix tuna or salmon, avocado, green onions, Sriracha mayo, black pepper, and Infused Black Garlic Salt (optional) until evenly combined. 

Step 4: Dress up the Rice! 

Mix rice vinegar and sesame oil (optional) with the rice. Add the Furikake. Mix until consistent. 

Step 5: Fill Your Mold! 

Open your onigiri mold. With a spoon, pack each onigiri mold halfway with rice. Take approximately 1.5 tbsp of your filling and make a little layer in the center of your mold. Fill the rest of the mold to the top with rice. It's okay if the rice is not totally packed in there, the next step will secure it. 

Step 6: Shape Your Onigiris! 

Take the mold lid and pop those optional plastic circles out of it (these are for creating round indents to add pickled plum, if you'd like). Press the lid all the way until the two pieces of the mold touch. Take the lid off, turn the mold upside down and pop your onigiris out by pushing on the triangles.
