Spam musubi is one of my personal favorite snacks to make whenever I have free time. Its a very simple dish to create using only a few ingredients.
- ▢ 1.5 cup/310g Rice (uncooked)
- ▢ 1 tbsp Toasted sesame seeds
- ▢ 1 Nori seaweed sheet
- ▢ 1 can of small Spam 7oz(200g)
- ▢ 2 tsp vegetable oil
- ▢ 1 tbsp soy sauce
- ▢ 1 tbsp sake
- ▢ 1 tbsp rice vinegar
- ▢ 1 tbsp sugar
- ▢ 2 tsp Katakuriko (potato starch)
- ▢ 1 tbsp water
- 1. Cook rice by the instructions listed on your rice cooker.
- 2. Once the rice been cooked, sprinkle toasted sesame seeds into the rice.
- 3. Slice the spam ham into 6 even slices.
- 4. Heat a frying pan over medium heat with vegetable oil
- 5. Add Spam. Cook and brown each side for about 2-3 min.
- 6. Set aside the cooked spam slices. Then place all ingredients into the pan and reduce the heat to low.
- 7. Stir continuously until thick, put the Spam slices back into the frying pan and coat the spam with the sauce. Turn the heat off.
- 8. Next is to assemble the Spam. I like to use a specific mold for Spam, but if you don’t have one there is a very easy alternative. Line a washed spam tin with cling wrap and put 1/6 of the cooked rice into the tin.
- 9. Press the rice down with your hand. Add a piece of spam on top and press.
- 10. Remove the spam and rice, place the nori strip over on the centre of the spam and wrap over the musubi.
Sounds delicious, I’ll give it a try! Thanks for the recipe!
