Welcome to DAY 1 of my Street Food Series, where I share 15 of my favorite street foods that are delicious and easy to make at home! For the first day, we will be making Japanese Creamy Tuna Grilled Rice Balls - Tuna Yaki Onigiri that is finger-licking good! With only a few simple ingredients, you will be able to make Yaki Onigiri in less than 20 minutes. Japanese Creamy Rice Balls was the most requested recipe from my most recent “What I Eat In a Day,” and I am excited to share with you how to make it!
My favorite part about Yaki Onigiri is that there are so many variations, and you can customize it to your liking. Depending on your diet, schedule, and what you have available, you can add whatever filling of your choice. I am eating Creamy Tuna and Spicy Tuna today, but you can also add other fillings as well such as Japanese pickled plum, cod roe, seaweed, avocado, and chicken! If you are in a rush, you can also eat it plain with just furikake seasoning.
To save time and make perfect onigiri every single time, I am using a Triangle Onigiri Mold. Onigiri molds are affordable ($7) and are super convenient for quick and easy lunches. Using a mold, you can ensure that the rice is tightly packed and doesn’t fall apart. If you don’t have a mold, you can also use your hands instead. Quick tip - to prevent the rice from sticking to your hands, make sure to wet your hands with water first. (LINK ON MY WEBSITE)
Creamy Tuna Grilled Rice Balls has been my GO-TO lunch for the past few weeks because it is filling, affordable, easy to make, and insanely delicious! Creamy Tuna is my go-to filling because it is super quick and tasty. Don Won Tuna can is my FAVORITE brand of canned tuna. If you like it spicy, you can either add in 1 tbsp of Korean Spicy Chili Paste or try their Spicy Korean Double Hot Tuna, which is insanely delicious! Make sure to use Japanese Mayo for the extra creaminess!
