Soccer Rice Ball

My husband loves soccer and so excited about up coming FIFA world cup!

I like salmon rice balls, but wild salmon is so expensive...
I found wild caught salmon can at Whole Foods Market and it's not that expensive.

I made salmon flakes with it and it turned out really good.
You can mix it with mayo and use it for sushi roll too. Yum!
