Aji nori also goes well with onigiri. Take a piece and wrap it as shown in the photo. It’ll be nice and crispy!
We recommend you follow our onigiri recipe with all the steps to form them as in Japan.
Grilled nori seaweed is very crunchy and easily breakable, so if you like, you can crumble it over dishes or a salad, for example. But do so at the last moment, to avoid softening.
You can store them in an airtight tin, but personally, grilled seaweed doesn’t last long in our house! Tell us in the comments what you think and how you use it!
