Put 120 g steamed rice on a square of plastic wrap. Make a hollow in the center of the steamed rice and put 8 g flaked salmon there.
Wrap the steamed rice in the plastic wrap and press into desired shape (triangular, ball or cylindrical).
Remove the plastic wrap and sprinkle 1/3 to 1/2 teaspoon salt over the whole rice ball.
Wrap the toasted dried laver (nori) around the rice ball. For triangle and ball shapes, use 6 cm. × 18 cm. size. For cylindrical shape, use 4 cm. × 11 cm. size.
The salty taste of the flaked salmon and the steamed rice is very good. It is one of the most popular rice balls in Japan.
