Korean Tuna Mayo Rice Balls
Korean Tuna Mayo Rice Balls is a delicious snack or appetizer recipe that is very popular in Korea. For ease, this recipe uses canned tuna in oil for the filling mixed with mayonnaise and a little salt. No fuss and easy!
For this recipe, I call for short-grain white rice. The quality of rice is crucial here. So go with the sushi rice. It gives the proper amount of stickiness for creating cohesive rice balls. Also, make sure to cook the rice with 4 additional tablespoons of water added to the amount recommended on your package instructions. To shape these rice balls, use a piece of plastic wrap. This hack will allow you to mold the rice balls more easily. Alternatively, you can wet your hands before shaping so that the rice won’t stick. To store, tightly wrap each rice ball in plastic wrap. Though, these are best when eaten fresh just right after shaping.
