I’ve actually really wanted to make these for a while now! I filled these with my favorite fillings – tuna and corn, and salmon and avocado, but you’re welcome to add whatever kind of filling that you like! The rice is just lightly salted, and the tuna and corn is made creamy with the addition of mayonnaise. Cutting out the logos can be a bit fiddly, but apart from that, these come together really quickly. If you’re nervous about finding salmon that is safe to eat raw, simply go the area in your grocery store where they sell pre-made sushi, and pick up a box of sashimi! No tummy ache – guaranteed (hopefully)!
- 2 rice cooker cups 360ml of short-grain rice
- pink food coloring
- 2 tbsp corn
- ½ can of tuna
- salt & pepper
- 1 piece of salmon sashimi
- ¼ avocado mashed
- 3 slices of processed white cheese
- nori sheets
- Place the rice in the rice cooker with as much water as directed, and add a few drops of pink food coloring. Then cook the rice as usual.
- Make the filling in the meantime: Mix together the corn, tuna, a squirt of mayonnaise and salt and pepper in a small bowl. Set aside.
- Using a printed out Chanel logo as a stencil, cut 3 logos out from the processed cheese. Set these aside as well.
- Add some salt to the rice once it’s finished cooking, and lay out two sheets of plastic wrap. Take about a handful of rice and place it in the center of each sheet, and place a spoonful of the filling in the center of each mound of rice. Shape the rice into balls using the plastic wrap, and squeeze tightly. Unwrap the onigiri from the plastic wrap, and wrap one onigiri in a sheet of nori. You may need to trim the edges of the nori to properly fit it to the onigiri. Then place a Chanel logo onto both onigiris.
- To make the Chanel purse onigiri, line a mug with plastic wrap. Spoon a few tablespoons of rice into the bottom of the mug, and press down. Then add the salmon sashimi with some wasabi spread on top, and top with more rice. Press down again, and add the avocado. Add a final layer of rice, and press down firmly once more. Remove the onigiri from the mug, and wrap it in a sheet of nori. You may need to trim the sides of this as well. Then cut out a piece of cheese into the shape of the top opening flap thingy (?) of the purse, and then cover with a sheet of nori. Place this on top of the purse, and place the logo on top.
