Spam Musubis

In elementary school, my friend’s mom would bring spam musubis to every potluck; they were the ooonnllyy thing I cared about. I remember being so bummed the one time she was away for work and didn’t bring them in lol. Nowadays, I know that I can easily make them myself!

I used:
  • 1 can of reduced sodium spam
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp mirin
  • white rice (approx 2 cups)
  • seaweed sheet
  • mix together the sauce of soy sauce, brown sugar, and mirin
  • slice spam into about ~8-10 sections, cut them into hearts if desired!
  • heat up a little oil in a pan, over medium heat, and pan fry both sides until golden brown ~2 minutes
  • add in the sauce and fry for about a minute per side, turn heat to medium-low if the sauce is caramelizing too quickly
  • shape rice balls using your hands, or if making full musubis, use the spam tin to shape your rice (wet your hands to prevent sticking!)
  • layer spam on top of the rice and wrap them in seaweed
