Japanese Rice With Salted Peanuts and Scallions -


2 cups short-grain japanese rice
5 tablespoons salted peanuts
2 scallions, sliced thinly across
1 teaspoon peanut oil
kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper


Lightly rinse the rice in a sieve until all the rice is wet. Put it in a 6-cup saucepan with 2 cups water and let it soak for 30 minutes.
Crush the peanuts lightly to the size of whole peppercorns. This is easy to do by pressing a small, heavy saucepan on the peanuts with a rocking motion.
Stir the rice well and place the saucepan over high heat. Let the rice come to a boil. Stir it again and turn the heat down as low as possible. Cover the saucepan with a tight-fitting lid and let simmer for 11 minutes. Move the rice off the heat and let it sit, covered for 5 minutes.
Transfer the rice to a bowl, stir well, and let cool for 10 minutes. Fold in the peanuts, scallions, oil, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Shape the rice in a mold.
For assembly:.
Choose a simple, colorful plate that contrasts in both shape and color with the rice.
