Keto Onigiri

Serving 6

The sweet tangy flavor of the Pickled Plum salt is perfect for this Asian inspired recipe - Kerry

Onigiri, or rice ball, is a Japanese fast food usually made from rice and formed into triangular or cylindrical shapes, often wrapped in nori.

This Keto adaptation made with cauliflower rice offers a nice alternative to the more traditional white rice.

Keto Onigiri


  • 450g Raw Cauliflower

  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon Sassy Salt Pickled Plum and Wakame salt

  • 140g pink salmon ( canned or steamed )

  • 140g cream cheese ( softened )

  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise ( Kewpie works great )

  • 2 sheets of nori seaweed

Directions :

  1. Chop the cauliflower into chunks and grate into rice consistency (or blitz in food processor ! )

  2. Cook the cauliflower over medium heat until it has steamed out most of the water.

  3. Allow to cool, then mix in soy sauce, unseasoned rice vinegar and salt.

  4. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the softened cream cheese. Chill in the fridge for about half an hour.

  5. Mix the salmon with the mayonnaise, set aside.

  6. Divide the rice mixture into 6 sections. Place one section on a sheet of plastic wrap and create a well in the middle.

  7. Add a tablespoon of the salmon mixture into the well. Use the plastic wrap to form a ball of cauliflower rice around the salmon. Once the salmon is fully enclosed you can create the triangle shape.

  8. Unwrap the onigiri and adjust the shape if needed ( It's a little bit harder to work with that normal rice so just be patient and do your best ! )

  9. Cut the sheets of nori into three strips and place around the base of the onigiri.
