Put the rice in a bowl and pour hot water over it. Stir to break up any clumps and release any excess starch on the surface of the rice.
Strain the rice and dump the water. Put the rice back into the bowl and then crumble the salted salmon on top.
Top with garnishes such as crumbled rice crackers, sesame seeds, and mitsuba.
