When we have leftover rice, I make this for Bobby’s breakfast in the morning. He absolutely loves it. As a non-lover of white rice, I don’t usually partake, but this is a classic and it’s simple and quick to pull together. Carbs, protein, and a bit of seaweed = a great start to the day.
Omusubi (Japanese Breakfast)
- 3/4 cup leftover rice
- 2-3 tablespoons smoked salmon
- 1 strip of seaweed
- Mix together the rice and salmon. I use my fingers; the only drawback is that my hands smell like smoked salmon all morning, no matter how much I wash them. If you want to get fancy about it, you can put the salmon in the center of the rice, instead of mixing it through.
- Form the rice/salmon into a triangular shape. At this point I put the triangle into a plastic bag so he can take it to work.
- When you’re ready to eat it, wrap the triangle with the strip of seaweed and enjoy!
