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, 5.0 out of 5 based on 2 ratings


  • 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)


1.  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!

    It took me a few to get the hang of molding the rice by hand, other than this it was super easy to make and delicious!!! I mixed the extra sauce in the rice and added a thinly sliced egg omelette. Next version: using fried rice instead of plain white rice.
