I know you may think that this post is kind of off topic, but spam musubi makes me happy and it will make you happy too. I make this whenever I’m hungry and I need something fast. The ingredients can be found in asian supermarkets and sometimes regular markets.
Here is what you will need:
- 1 can of spam
- cooked rice- amount depends on how much rice you like
- nori sheets- these can be found in most asian supermarkets, you will want to get the big sheets
- mold- these can also be found in most asian supermarkets, I like nonstick the best
- knife or spam slicer
- small bowl of water
There are many extra ingredients you can use like teriyaki sauce on the spam, furikake (rice seasoning). You can use fried rice or brown rice, and you can use tofu, egg, chicken, bacon or any kind of meat instead of Spam. Feel free to let your creativity flow!
- Cut the Spam in to slices about 1/2 inch thick or thicker or thinner if you’d like.
- Fry the spam on medium heat until golden brown and warm throughout.
- Place the nori on a cutting board or plate (it’s easier on a flat surface) shiny side down. You will be able to tell which side is the shiny side. It is smooth and shiny while the other side is rougher and not shiny.
- Place the musubi mold on the nori about a third of the way up.
- Fill the bottom halfway with rice and use the press to lightly squish the rice down.
- Place 2 pieces of Spam in the mold
- Put rice on top and squish lightly again.
- Keep your hand on the press part and lift up the mold. If you have difficulty doing this then run a wet knife around the edges.
- Lift up the press part of the mold. If you have difficulty with this then run a wet knife along the top.
- Fold up the sides of the nori and roll so that the rice and Spam are covered with the nori. Dip your finger in water and seal the edges of the nori.
- Cut in half and Enjoy!
