Air Fryer Yaki Onigiri


1. With lightly damp hands, use 1/2 cup of rice and shape into triangle onigiri. In a small bowl, mix together the melted butter and Bachan sauce. Brush both sides with the sauce. Sprinkle on toasted sesame seeds, if desired.

2. Air fry in a lightly oiled air fryer basket for 5 minutes at 400°F. Brush with extra Bachan’s and continue to cook for another 5 minutes. Flip, brush with sauce and cook for 5 more minutes or until deeply golden.

3. Cool and wrap with desired amount of nori. Enjoy!
