Fried Rice Inari

Fried Rice Inari-Zushi

This is a more complicated take on plain inari sushi.

Fried Rice Inari-Zushi

Son likes to make this fried rice for me occasionally (this is the only thing he ever cooks for me) so we thought we would put it into inari and see how it turned out! Well, it turned out tasting pretty good, so now we share it with you!

Cooking Directions

Cook the rice. (I use a rice cooker, you can cook it in a pan if you prefer)

Dice the onion into small pieces.

Slice the sausages into thin slices.

Cut off the tails of the shrimp and cut the shrimp into thirds.

Break the eggs into a bowl, and whisk until smooth.

Chop the green onions. (I just use scissors to cut them into small bits)

Once the rice is done cooking, sauté the diced onions (not the green onions) with the butter in a large frying pan.

Put the onions in the frying pan...

... and saute with butter

Put the sliced sausages in the pan and let cook for about 10 minutes, or until they start to brown. Occasionally stir, so the sausage cooks evenly.

Pour the sausages in the pan...

...and stir

Pour in the chopped shrimp, and let cook until it begins to turn opaque.

... and mix into the onions and sausage

Mix in the rice, stirring so it is distributed evenly throughout the pan.

Mix the rice into the other ingredients

Pour about 2 tbsp shoyu into the pan (more if you want it saltier, less if you prefer a lower salt intake). Stir.

Pour the shoyu into the pan

Pour the whisked eggs into the pan, stirring so everything is coated with egg. Let cook while stirring for about 5 minutes.

Pour the egg into the fried rice

Mix the egg into the fried rice

Pour the chopped green onions in. Stir so they are evenly spread about the fried rice.

Put the green onion in the fried rice

Mix in the green onion

Make the inari sushi, using the fried rice instead of sumeshi.

Eat! You can eat them plain, with shoyu, or with Siracha hot sauce!.
