Onigiri Shumai Dumplings

Onigiri Shumai Dumplings

Makes 10-12 dumplings.


- 2 cups cooked sushi rice
- 2-3 Tablespoons of furikake, pre-made or homemade
- 3 soy wrappers, each cut into 4 squares (I used the orange variety from Yamamotoyama)
- sriracha and soy sauce to serve


  1. In a large bowl, gently fold the furikake in with the rice. The steam will help the flavors to bloom.
  2. Measure out generous 2 Tbsp portions of the rice, then place in the middle of one of the wrappers. Use a few light dabs of water to help the wrapper stick to the sides of the rice ball. Lightly place pressure on the bottom of the rice ball to create a flat bottom.
  3. Repeat the process until you get 12 dumplings. Top with sriracha to serve.
