What are the Onigirirazu?

The Onigirirazu are small sandwiches inspired by the Japanese cuisine. They look like onigiri, small rice balls covered with nori sheets, with the difference that the onigirirazu have a square or triangular shape when cut in half.

Like onigiri, they are prepared from sushi rice and a nori sheet. They can be garnished with different ingredients: fish (surimi, tuna, salmon), tofu, veggies, eggs etc.

How to fold the Onigirirazu?

Folding the onigirirazu is easier than it looks! For this you need:

  • Sushi rice: Cook the rice as indicated on the package and season it after cooking with a drizzle of Mirin (Japanese rice vinegar), a pinch of salt and sugar
  • One sheet of nori per onigirirazu: You will find nori sheets in the Asian food section of your supermarket.
  • The garnish of your choice: There are many onigirirazu recipes. For this recipe of Onigirirazu with Surimi and Veggies, I chose surimi as the main ingredient that I accompanied with raw vegetables and a sriracha mayo.

Garnish the onigirirazu

Cut a large square of cling film and place the nori sheet on it. Place the smooth part outward. Add a portion of rice. Count a little more than a tablespoon.

Then add the garnish. For this recipe, I added in order: a salad leaf, red cabbage, sriracha mayo, surimi sticks, cucumber slices, carrots, more sriracha mayo and to finish another salad leaf.

Finish with a last spoonful of rice. Try not to overcrowd your onigirirazu, otherwise it will be difficult to seal them.

Fold the onigirirazu

To close your onigirirazu, start by folding each corner inwards. You can wet the corners of the sheet very lightly with a little water to make them stick better.

Then close the sandwich in the cling film, also folding the corners of the cling film inwards. Tighten as much as possible by turning the cling film so that your onigirirazu is quite dense. This will lose its square shape and take a round shape, this is quite normal.

Finally, place your onigirirazu in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. The filling will moisten the nori sheet and allow the sandwich to hold.
