Japanese Rice Ball Onigiri おにぎり

Onigiri お握り or 御握り, is a Japanese rice ball made with white rice and shaped into traingular or oval shapes, it can be wrapped in seaweed (nori 海苔). An onigiri is normally filled with pickled ume (umeboshi 梅干), salted salmon, katsuobushi, kombu, tarako, or any other salty or sour ingredient as a natural preservative. You can easily get it from convenient stores in Japan. I made an onigiri in Japan, with a very simple ingredients and procedures to follow. Those ingredients can easily get in Malaysia too.

 

Onigiri Station | Suntech Bayan Baru, Penang

There is a new Japanese food restaurant open at Suntech Bayan Baru, Onigiri Station. Actually it is not newly open but yesterday was our first try there. We park our car at Sunshine Market and walk to the restaurant. Before we arrived at Onigiri Station, my brain already trigger me back to Japan. The fragrance from the restaurant was very similar to restaurants in Japan. This restaurant is quite small and everything is self service. I ordered a set of salmon don, which came with miso soup and green tea ice cream. Free flow of barley tea and RO water are available too.

Scallop_2The picture shows the scallop I bought last week. I found it in the super market near my company (in Japan). It was a fresh scallop, 120yen each, but I get it for the price of 60yen (about RM2.20) after 50% of discount.

After wash, I cooked it together with the shell directly above the gas, the shell acts as my cooking pan and the scallop was my main dish Wink . While it was about 80% cooked, I added soy sauce to the scallop and ate with rice after cooked.


 

Look carefully at the scallop's size by comparing the shell with the gas stove, big?

Scallop

The taste was good and fresh, I can hardly see this kind of big scallop in Malaysia (seems like never see it beforeTongue out). Should eat more before I go back to Malaysia. After back to Malaysia, I believed I only have the chance to eat dried scallop where the taste is a bit different compare to the fresh scallop. Yummy yummy... Laughing
