  • 1 can tuna
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise

  1. Filling: Mix tuna and mayonnaise.
  2. Scoop 1/4 cup of rice onto plastic wrap and flatten rice. In the middle, place filling on top of the rice. Pull plastic wrap together to shape into a ball.
  3. Under lower to medium low heat, grill each onigiri in a pan with butter until all sides form a crispy crust.
