Ingredients

    Calrose Rice- 1 1/2 cups
    Flaked Light Tuna (Low Sodium) half a can
    Sushi Nori (if desired)

Directions

Cook the Calrose Rice according to the box. Note that if you haven't cooked this rice before, it will look "mushy" at first. Once all the water has been absorbed into the rice, empty it into a large bowl and let it cool for about 10 minutes.

Once it is cool enough to handle, but still quite warm, start molding into shapes. Dip your hands in warm salted water to help stop the rice from sticking to your fingers.

Take a small amount of tuna and insert into the middle of the rice ball or patty.

If you like, a small piece of nori cut into a strip can be wrapped around the bottom of the onigiri to help keep the rice off your hands as you eat it.

Popular shapes for onigiri are balls, triangles, cylinders, or small flat "disks".

Other types of filling can be used, but tuna is my favourite. Have fun!
