How to Make Onigirazu (Rice Sandwiches) - Video Recipe

Onigirazu is a new type of Onigiri (rice ball) becoming very popular in Japan recently in 2015.

Unlike Onigiri (rice ball), Onigirazu can be prepared quickly without making into a triangular or a ball shape but just by wrapping rice and the fillings in Nori seaweed sheet.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xSAMUuFw5Hk

I think it is a great idea that you can wrap more fillings than the regular ball-shaped Onigiri. Also, it looks very pretty like sandwiches!!!

Try it out with your favorite fillings ;)



---------------------------------
Onigirazu

Difficulty: Very Easy
Time: depends on what you wrap
Number of servings: N/A

Ideas:
curry flavored rice + bacon and eggs
Yukari (red Shiso leaves rice seasoning) rice + Shiso leaves + sliced cheese
white rice + shredded cabbage + Tonkatsu (pork cutlet) + Tonkatsu sauce

Directions:
1. Place Nori seaweed sheet on plastic wrap.
2. Place rice in the center, then flatten it out.
3. Place the fillings on top.
4. Cover the fillings with rice, then flatten it out.
5. Fold the corners towards the center of the rice, then wrap tightly with plastic wrap.
6. When the Nori gets soft, cut into half.

How to Make Sushi Cake for Hinamatsuri (Girl's Festival) - Video Recipe

Japanese Doll Festival (Hinamatsuri), or Girls' Day, is held on March 3rd.
On this day, we set up hina dolls (hina-ningyo) since they are believed to protect girls from bad luck.

This year (2015) was my daughter's 1st Hinamatsuri! The very first celebration is important, when family members hope for growth and happiness for baby girls. My daughter still can't eat anything but I hope she liked this Sushi cake :)


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_bH6fBujfI

Hishi Mochi (diamond shaped rice cake) is usually presented with hina dolls. Hishi Mochi commonly consists of three layers: pink, white, and green, from top to bottom. It is said that pink represents peach flowers, white represents snow, and green represents grass. Those colors have a meaning to get the power of nature. Therefore, I used these three colors for my Sushi Cake :)



---------------------------------
Sushi Cake for Hinamatsuri

Difficulty: Medium
Time: 20min
Number of servings: 4 people = 15cm (6inch) round cake pan

Ingredients:
green/white/pink Sushi rice
Kinshi Tamago (shredded egg crepe)
smoked salmon
cucumber
2 quail eggs
Nori seaweed sheet
Ikura (salmon roe)
Sakura Denbu (pink colored seasoned shredded codfish)

Directions:
1. Wet the cake pan (or line with plastic wrap). Place the crab meat Sushi rice and press down flat with a rice paddle or a spoon. Then place the white Sushi rice and the Aonori Sushi rice one after another and flatten as well. Turn the cake pan upside down onto a plate to remove the rice.
2. Make a thin ribbon of cucumber for Odairisama (prince)'s Kimono and slice the leftover into thin rounds.
3. Cut out the egg crepe and make a scepter and a fan. Thinly slice the leftover.
4. Place the cucumber slices and shredded egg crepe on the Sushi cake. Wrap the quail eggs with a cucumber ribbon (prince) and smoked salmon (princess). Let them hold the scepter (prince) and the fan (princess). Cut out Nori sheet to make their faces. Attach their hairs with bento picks. Garnish with Ikura and Sakura Denbu to finish.

* お雛様 (ohinasama: princess) holds a fan called 扇子 (sensu) in both hands.
* お内裏様 (odairisama: prince) holds a flat wooden scepter called 笏 (shaku) symbolic of his rank in his right hand.

1. Make a few holes in the eggplants so that they won't explode. Make an incision around the stem end.
2. Place them directly on a stove on a baking rack if you have (or in a frying pan, grill, oven, or toaster oven), then roast until the skins get wrinkly and tender inside. You can also wrap in plastic wrap and microwave at 600w for 2 minutes.
3. Cool until you can handle them, then remove the skins. Make an incision lengthwise and open.
4. Heat the eel sauce in a frying pan until it begins to bubble. Place the eggplants and cook until the liquid is gone.
5. Serve cooked rice in a rice bowl, layer some Kizaminori (finely shredded Nori seaweed sheet), place the eggplants, then sprinkle with Sansho Japanese pepper if you like.
