Inarizushi

Inarizushi is a type of sushi, or rice ball, that's made with vinegared sushi rice, stuffed inside seasoned fried tofu skins.  Before they can be stuffed, the fried tofu skins are boiled in dashi stock that’s seasoned with soy sauce and sugar. Boiling them in dashi stock gets rid of excess oil, and adds a sweet and savory flavor, which goes well with the vinegared sushi rice. You can find prepared fried tofu skins that have already been boiled and seasoned in cans and in plastic pouches located in the cooler section of our stores. Many of these pouches also contain sushi rice seasoning, making them even more convenient.
