Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

I eat thib in the Japanese Resturant, but it had too much salt, I has to share it and drink lots of warm water.
I think the calorie count might be wrong. This is calculated using uncooked rice, 4 cups. If I am not mistaken, it should be 4 cups cooked rice. If I am right, then each Onigiri is closer to 100 calories which is what I would expect. There are lots of optional fillings for these.
I have made something similar, although vegetarian. I've taken them to picnics, and most people seem to love them, even those not familiar with this cuisine. I love Japanese food, because most of it is low in fat, and it satisfies me without making me feel stuffed. Do use sticky rice.
Make sure to use sticky rice (short grain, sushi) to make it easier. The salt is mostly used to keep the rice from sticking to your hands. I like to fill mine with ginger beef cooked in a sake reduction.
This sounds delicious but I question whether it is healthy to cook salmon at 400 degrees until dried out. Would that not wreck the great omega-3 fatty acids (that I understand are a bit delicate)? Could this work without the cooking the salmon to death part?
I have to question the use of any salt with umeboshi. They are incredibley salty as is. For my taste I found them unedible However I'm not a salt user..Cher Jim
