Grilled Rice Balls

Yaki Onigiri is a very popular snack or takeout food made from rice formed into triangle or cylinder shapes, served wrapped with nori (seaweed) paper. Yaki means grilled or cooked To celebrate Rice Ball day on April 19th, I needed to try my hand at such a popular dish. They turned out fantastic, and I quickly got a handle on forming the sticky rice into a shape that resembled the pictures of Onigiri that I have seen. Traditionally Onigiri is stuffed with pickles or other sour things like pickled Umeboshi (Japanese salt plums), salted salmon, kombu (pickled seaweed), pickled tuna flakes, or salted Pollock. Feel free to substitute any of these for the chicken if you want to go super traditional.
