Making the Red Bird

An idea struck me when it was my son’s lunch box day on Fridays. Jon loves Onigiri, so I decided to make him an Angry Birds Lunch Box!  So are you ready for some action now?? Let's GAME!

 

Ingredients

(Red Bird) 3 tbsp cooked Japanese Rice 2 Crabsticks ½ Hard-boiled Egg 1 slice of Cheese 1 sheet of Nori (seaweed) 1 tsp Salt water 1 tbsp Ketchup ( tomato sauce) 1 tbsp Mayonnaise Dash of black pepper 1 sheet of Cling wrap Mayonnaise & Wasabi for serving (optional)

Directions

Mash hard-boiled egg & set aside. Blanch crabmeat in boiling water & drain. Dice it & mix with egg, mayo & pepper.

Mix Ketchup into 2 tbsp of rice. Using fingers, spread some salt water onto cling wrap. Put 2 tbsp of rice onto palm & top with crabmeat mixture.

Make into a ball. Add 1 tbsp of white rice to make the bottom of the Red Bird. Press well to combine the two.

Once you’re done, start cutting out the eyes by using Cheese & Nori & the crown/beak using Carrots. Tada! Here’s your 1st Angry Bird!! Serve with mayo & wasabi if you like :) So what do you think of this Red Bird?
