Super Easy Spam Musubi
Spam Musubi is a very popular Hawaiian snack that is just like sushi. I made this for my kids and my friends’ kids and they all loved it! Adults love it too! It is a great snack for when you travel by car. No more stopping at those fast food joints!Super Easy Spam Musubi,
- 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
- 3 tablespoons ASI-MIRIN rice seasoning
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 cup oyster sauce
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 2 tablespoons Furikake rice seasoning (any flavor)
- 1 can (12 oz) spam
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 5 sheets sushi nori (dry unseasoned seaweed)
- Cooked and cooled white rice (equivalent to 2 cups uncooked). Sushi rice is best.
- 2 cups water
- wasabi (optional)
Preparation1. In a medium bowl, stir together rice vinegar, Asi-mirin, soy sauce, oyster sauce, sugar and Furikake until sugar is completely dissolved. Slice spam lengthwise into 10 slices, or to desired thickness, and marinate in sauce for 5 minutes.
2. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium high heat. Cook spam slices for 2 minutes per side or until lightly browned.
3. Cut nori sheet in half and lay on a flat work surface. Place a rice press in the center of the sheet and press rice tightly inside. Springle a little Furikake on rice. Top with a slice of spam and remove press. Wrap nori around rice mold, sealing edges with a small amount of water. (Rice may also be formed by hand in the shape of the spam slices, 1 inch thick).
4. Wrap musubi individually with saran wrap. Musubi may be served warm or chilled.
For wasabi lovers! Spread a little bit of wasabi paste on spam before wrapping with nori seaweed. This gives a good kick to the musubi. I love it!
