Canned Tuna Onigiri

Active time: 15 minutes Total time: 1 hour, 20 minutes

A staple of Japanese “conbini” convenience stores, these fun nori seaweed-wrapped rice balls are a great way to use canned tuna fish when ho-hum tuna salad sandwiches are played out. Serve with low-sodium soy sauce, for dipping, if desired.

Note: Cooking times for short-grain brown rice vary, refer to the cooking instructions on the package. Ideally, the rice for onigiri should be a bit overcooked to make it easier to compact, so add a few minutes to the cooking time listed in the package instructions.
