O-nigiri: Japan’s gift to the world (because there’s a tasty present in the middle). Why we love it? Because it’s a tasty gift wrapped in glutinous white rice and formed into triangular, square, or oval shape - often wrapped in nori (seaweed - kinda like a bow on a gift). Duh… But I betcha didn’t know that…
- O-nigiri is also known as o-musubi (お結び; おむすび), nigirimeshi (握り飯; にぎりめし) or rice ball.
- O-nigiri is typically filled with pickled ume (umeboshi), salted salmon, katsuobushi,kombu, tarako, or any salty or sour ingredient as a natural preservative.
- Onigiri is not a form of sushi. Onigiri is made with plain rice, while sushi is made of rice with vinegar, sugar and salt.
While Onigiri may not seem so common at this very moment, we see this simple, but fanciful dish as a rising trend. Give it ‘til this Autumn and you’ll see variations of O-nigiri everywhere!
Happy Foodie Friday!
