Made of vinegared rice tucked inside little deep-fried tofu pockets, Inari Sushi is easily one of the easiest sushi to make at home.
Prepare sushi rice ahead of time and keep it at lukewarm/room temperature.
Gather all the ingredients.
Add sesame seeds to the sushi rice and mix together.
Carefully open the Inari-Age pocket (it's very thin, so it's easy to break or tear). Make sure you can see the bottom of the pocket as you need to stuff the sushi rice all the way.
Moisten hands with the liquid from Inari-Age. Take a small handful of rice and make a small rice ball. Do not make it too big otherwise, it won't fit in Inari-Age.
Wrap each rice ball with shiso and a piece of nori and stuff the rice ball into the Inari-Age. Close the Inari-Age and place open-end down on a plate.
Tuck in the edge of Inari-Age inside the pocket so you will have a nice smooth round edge. You can decorate the top as you like.
