  1. You can use onion instead of shallots.
  2. If yolks aren’t your thing, you can top the crispy rice with pretty much anything your heart desires, that’s what I love about crispy rice… it’s extremely versatile.
  3. I topped mine with chives, but you can easily swap it for your favorite herbs.

Chef Nadia’s Tip

You can cure the yolks a bit longer but I wanted them jammier so I only did it for 4 hours. Also, always use sushi rice when making crispy rice!
