1. In a bowl, crumble the tuna, add the cilantro sprigs cut into tiny pieces, pink pepper and a dash of olive oil. Pit the umeboshi plums, add to the bowl and mix thoroughly. You can mix the rice and tuna preparation together or set the tuna preparation aside.

2. Wet your hands without drying them. Put a big ball of rice into the palm of your hand and shape it into a triangle. If you set the tuna preparation aside, flatten the rice ball on the palm of your add, add a small amount of tuna mixture to the center and close the triangle to cover the tuna preparation with your hands.

Cut a sheet of grilled nori in half and use one half to wrap the rice ball. You can also cut a smaller rectangular piece of nori, place it in the center of the triangle and cover the bottom and the back of the rice ball. It can also be eaten on its own, without nori.
