Cooking the rice
1. Cook the white rice, then add sesame oil, rice wine vinegar and salt and mix together.
Preparing the filling
1. To make the filling, combine tuna with mayo and black pepper. Adjust the mayo depending on how creamy you like it.
Assembling the onigiri

2. Grab roughly 1/2 cup of sushi rice and press into an oval shape.

4. Gently shape the rice ball into a wide triangular shape using the palm of your hand.
Preparing the egg mix
1. In a separate bowl, mix the eggs and a pinch of salt.
Cooking the onigiri
1. Dip the onigiri in the egg mix and cook on a pan over low heat.
