Easiest and quickest meal you can whip up is ‘kimbap triangle’, also known as ‘samgak kimbap. Koreans call it samgak gimbap whereas in Japan, it’s called onigiri. In our household, we call it rice ball with our kids. While there is a debate on how to call this dish, onigiri vs kimbap, there really is no difference in how you make them.
Whichever way it is called, these kimbap triangles are super easy to make, great as kids snack or quick kids meal. I love making it with Tuna since all you need is a tuna can and you don’t really need to cook anything else, other than rice!
So let’s enjoy this 15 minute quick meal - my favorite Korean rice balls, Tuna Kimbap Triangle.
Super easy 15 minute meal that's nutritious and healthy and yummy - Kimbap triangle, also known as tuna onigiri or samgak kimbap
- Tuna Can - 1
- Cooked Rice - 1.5 cup (use sushi rice)
- Seaweed - I used seaweed snack like this one since we always have this at home. If you want the individual ones that are packaged in plastic, then it will save your seaweed from getting soggy
- Mayo (I used Kewpie mayo to make the best taste) - 1.5 Tbs
- Sesame oil - 1.5 Tbs
- Sesame seeds - 1Tbs
- Furikake Seasoning
- Pepper - a little
- Open your tuna can and add mayo and pepper and mix well together.
- Cook white rice based on instructions and add to the bowl. Add salt, sesame oil, sesame seeds and mix well together.
- Using the tray (if you have it), add rice at the bottom and ensure all corners are all well covered.
- Add tuna (the amount depends on the try size) but more tuna you add, the more tastier it gets.
- Cover the tray with rice and put the top lid and push down gently.
- Sprinkle with furikake seasoning.
- Wrap your samgak gimbap with seaweed and enjoy!
I got my onigiri mold from Daiso, but you can easily order on Amazon!
