Tuna-mayo is the basic recipe for onigiri. It is the most popular topping in Japan. Although it is now a classic, it is worth noting that for almost 100 years before it was introduced, it was unthinkable that toppings other than salted plum or kombu would conquer the hearts of the Japanese. Tuna mayonnaise revolutionized onigiri recipes when it was introduced in 1983, and sales soared!
