Just before going to bed the other night, I was thinking about what else I could use the shoyu negi sauce for.
And I thought of this...yakionigiri (grilled rice balls).
Technically, you are supposed to "grill" them on a wire grill over a flame or hot coals, but I don't have a wire grill nor the coals, so I used my non-stick pan.
I brushed a little canola oil onto the pan and then set the onigiri on it.
Then I brushed the onigiri with what oil was left on the brush.
When I could hear a little sizzle, I brushed the shoyu negi sauce on. Flipping the onigiri after it had been basted.
I did this several times until I got a nice brown color.
OM! this was delicious. The brown parts were chewy and a little crisp. Nice flavor from the sauce too.
This was great for a first try, I only wish I had made a triangle shaped onigiri so that I could have "grilled" the sides too.
Since I have some sauce left, I'm trying this again...soon!
