Hands down, one of my favorite snacks to make at home.
4 unsweetened mochi, fresh or thawed from frozen (look for 2- to 4-inch discs or flat rectangles at an Asian market)
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
2 teaspoons Yamaki Jozo or Yugeta Organic soy sauce
1 tablespoon konbu dashi or dashi
4 half sheets of toasted nori
Place the mochi in a sauté pan big enough to fit them all with a couple of inches between them (they will expand). Turn the heat to medium and cook for about 2 minutes, then flip the mochi over. Heat on the second side for an additional 1 to 2 minutes.
Once the mochi soften and turn golden brown in a few spots, remove them from the pan. Add the butter to the pan and heat it until it starts to brown, then deglaze with soy sauce and dashi. Cook for just a moment, being careful to keep the sauce from breaking. Return the mochi to the pan and coat with the sauce.
Lay out the 4 nori sheets and spoon a sauce-covered mochi onto the middle of each sheet. Fold like a taco and eat!!!
