Yaki Onigiri is Grilled Rice Balls.
Crispy, smoky and savory on the outside, and soft inside.
Perfect item for BBQ!!!
If you have a BBQ set (grill over charcoal), that would be perfect.
BUT you can also use a cast iron pan or a frying pan on the stove in your kitchen =)
Miso Yaki Onigiri (Miso-Flavored Grilled Rice Balls)
Difficulty: Very Easy
Number of Servings: 4 small rice balls
320g (11.3oz.) cooked Japanese rice *I mixed some brown rice
2 tsp. toasted white sesame seeds *optional
* 1 tbsp. Miso
* 1 tbsp. Mirin (sweet Sake)
* 1/2 tsp. sugar
* a pinch of Dashi powder
2 tsp. sesame oil
1. Mix A in a small bowl.
2. Mix sesame seeds in the rice (optional) and make 4 rice balls (you can use plastic wrap or wet your hands in water so that the rice won't stick).
3. Heat sesame oil in a frying pan, place the rice balls, cook both sides on a medium-low heat until browned.
4. Brush the rice balls with the miso mixture and cook both sides a bit more until browned. Please apply miso and cook them one by one or they may be burned black X(
You can simply brush them with soy sauce or Mentsuyu (concentrated dashi stock) but Miso is distinctive!
I don't recommend mixing the miso in the rice. Grains separate and you cannot form into a ball… I tried it and it was totally a mess… ended up making a fried rice X(
