Materials (For 2 pieces)

  • a bowl of rice 2 cups
  • rock seaweed 1 sheet
  • soy sauce 1 tsp or more

How to cook

  • 1. Divide the gohan into two parts and roll into a ball like a bakudan to make onigiri.

  • 2. Roast the iwanori over the flame of a gas stove. The standard color of the iwanori should be about the same as the color of the rice balls, which should turn slightly green. You may also use a fish grill to ensure that the iwanori is evenly cooked all the way to the edges.

  • 3. Cut the roasted iwanori in half and dip one side in soy sauce. Place the soy sauce-soaked side over the rice ball and wrap it up.
