I’m really excited for today’s recipe because I am recreating food from the Haikyu!! manga!
Samu made Tsumus favourite Negitoro Onigiri, so that’s exactly what we’re going to make! Onigiri are simple to make and really delicious. I find the smell and texture of warm rice and seaweed to be one of the most comforting things!
Check out this panel from the manga!
I love onigiri so much! Honestly I could eat them every day, and I may have done that before, for like 3 weeks…
Don’t mind me, day dreaming about being back in Japan and picking up fresh onigiri every morning *cue dreamy sigh*
But what I wouldn’t give to eat at Onigiri Miya!
Ok so this was not my first attempt at this recipe but I am so happy with the final result. Originally, I did more of a chopped tuna that I then marinated in a soy sauce green onion sauce. It was good, don’t get me wrong, but it wasn’t quite right.
Instead, I minced fresh tuna, mixed it with soy sauce, sesame oil, mirin, and green onion and it turned into a perfect filling for Onigiri. It’s no surprise that it is Tsumu’s favourite!
Next I’ll have to make Umeboshi Onigiri for Kiyoomi (iykyk). I’m a huge fan of these two!
I really hope you make these onigiri for yourself! If you’re worried about shaping them, don’t be! It took me some time (and watching a lot of masters make onigiri to get really comfortable with it) to get comfortable with it. You can always buy a mold to use to help you get the perfect shape! They’re pretty cheap and easy to find.
Here’s a link to a few onigiri molds you could check out:
