Spam Musubi

Print Friendly and PDF

Great comfort food! If you like Spam, you must try this recipe. Hawaiians eat more than four million cans of Spam a year, or an average of 12 cans per person.

5 cups cooked Japanese rice, at room temperature
5 sheets seaweed (nori), cut in strips lengthwise
1 can Spam
1 bottle teriyaki sauce (JES brand or Trader's Joe's work fine)

Make the rice ahead of time and cool to room temperature. Cut Spam into 8 slices. Fry until slightly crispy. Remove and drain on paper towels. Dip the Spam slices in the teriyaki sauce. Cut nori into strips and set aside. Fill musubi maker or empty Spam can (with both ends open) with rice and press down until the rice is 3/4-inch high. Top with Spam slice. Remove from mold and fold nori strip over Spam and rice until completely wrapped. Dampen the end of the nori with water to seal it.
