Longevity Peach Onigiri

It’s a Chinese tradition to serve longevity peach buns during birthdays and so I made a rice version with a hidden surprise.

Ingredients (makes 8):

8 cups of cooked sushi rice
8 large scallops
8 edible leaves (any kind)
Red food colouring
Pinch of salt


Allow cooked rice to cool till it is not too hot for handling. Pan-sear scallops until cooked with a little olive oil and a pinch of salt. Leave to cool on kitchen towel. Flatten half a cup of rice on left palm and place a scallop in the middle. Grab half a cup of rice on your right palm and press hands together firmly. Roll and form into peace shape. Brush colouring to the top and serve on a piece of leave
