For the teriyaki sauce


  1. Preheat the broiler (grill) to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with baking paper.

  2. Place the cooked and cooled sushi rice into a bowl and drizzle over the rice vinegar, stirring to combine. Form the seasoned rice into 8 even- sized balls.

  3. Wrap each rice ball with 2 rashers of bacon and place onto the baking sheet. Place the baking sheet under the broiler and broil for about 20 to 25 minutes until lightly browned.

  4. In the meantime, place all the ingredients for the teriyaki sauce into a small pot over a medium/high heat. Boil the sauce until it has reduced by half.

  5. Take the rice balls out of the oven and brush generously with the teriyaki sauce. Do this a further 3 or more times during the cook, to allow the bacon and rice to absorb all the sauce.

  6. Put the rice balls back in the broiler and cook for another five minutes for the sauce to caramelize.

  7. To serve, sprinkle over the toasted sesame seeds and green onions. Great as a snack.
