Yaki Onigiri

User Rating 5 Star Rating (1 Review)


Yaki onigiri are grilled rice balls. They are simply glazed with soy sauce in this recipe.


  • 4 cups steamed Japanese white rice or genmai brown rice
  • 3 - 4 Tbsp soy sauce


Wet your hands in water so that the rice won't stick. Place about a half cup of steamed rice on your hands. Form the rice into a round or a triangle, by pressing lightly with your both palms. Repeat the process to make rice balls. Lightly oil a large nonstick skillet and put it on low heat. Place rice balls in the skillet and cook until lightly browned on both sides. Brush soy sauce on rice balls little by little and turn them over. Brush soy sauce on the other sides as well. Cook until soy sauce begins to change color. Turn over and cook the other sides.
*Makes 8 rice balls
