Grilled Rice Balls Miso Yaki Onigiri


Miso Yaki Onigiri, meaning “Miso Glazed Grilled Rice Balls”, are a simple and delicious way to switch up your lunch or dinner side dish! They’re also a much more portable option, making them easy to eat on the go! These Yaki Onigiri are even coated in a very tasty Miso Butter Sauce, making them even better and yummier than just a plain old bowl of rice!

I used a flat grill pan which came with the portable cook top I used in the mini movie below. However, you can use a frying pan, or make heaps of rice balls beforehand and grill them all on the BBQ. It will be a great crowd pleaser appetiser at your next weekend BBQ lunch!
