Spam Musubi Recipe
  • 1 can Spam (Not light, smoked, turkey or any other “healthy variety. Just good ol’ canned Spam)
  • Musubi Nori
  • 2 cups cooked white rice (Can be long grain or short grain. Short probably works better, but long grain worked fine, as you can see.)
  • Soy sauce
  • Sugar
  1. (Note, you can get a Musubi mold Here, or carefully cut the bottom out of a can of Spam and use a piece of cardboard cut to fit the can and wrapped in foil or plastic wrap as a press.)
  2. Cook rice as directed in a rice cooker or on the stove top. Allow to cool for at least 20 minutes.
  3. Cut Spam into 1/2-inch thick slices lengthwise. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Drizzle Spam with soy sauce and sprinkle with a little sugar. Fry soy-covered side down for approximately 2 minutes, or until soy and sugar have caramelized. Drizzle a bit more soy and sugar on the uncooked side and flip, cooking until the second side is caramelized as well. Remove to a dish lined with paper towels and continue with the rest of the Spam.
  4. Cut Nori into strips as wide as the spam. Place a single sheet of cut Nori on a work surface and place Misubi mold over the center of the nori strip. Place spam in press and carefully fill press with about 3/4 cup rice. Place top on press and apply firm pressure to mold rice into the proper shape. Remove body of press, then remove top carefully. Wrap Nori over the sides and around the back of the Misubi.
  5. Serve immediately or refrigerate until serving.
