How to eat Onigiri
You will probably notice that the package has numbered corners from one to three.
Find the number one tab at the top. We will start there.
Okay, easy part done. The trick to doing the next steps correctly is to grab hold of the middle of the onigiri where the seaweed is now showing. It is visible now because you removed the strip of plastic that was tab number one. Hold on to that seaweed, and never let go! And carefully, slowly pull on tab number two.
Wait a second, almost there.
There’s your delicious snack! Crunchy and sticky, just waiting to be devoured. Enjoy your onigiri while living out a childhood dream.
Grab the tab and pull down, and don’t stop pulling!
You will see the plastic separate from the layers of rice and seaweed, removing the barrier between them without disturbing the integrity of the onigiri.
The onigiri is free of plastic but it doesn’t have that stereotypical triangle shape that defines all onigiri. This is definitely a hands-on kind of meal, because now you must fold your seaweed around the onigiri rice into that beautiful triangle shape.
You will pull that tab all the way down and then over and back up again on the backside of the onigiri until it is removed completely.
Now just do the same thing for tab three. Hold that seaweed in the middle and pull number three carefully.
Gently fold the back corners up and the front corners back.
