As you may or may not know, I traveled to Maui, Hawaii back in January for a business trip and while I was there, I tried spam musubi. If you know my, you know I absolutely LOVE spam. Yeah, I know… it looks disgusting, but if cooked properly, it’s the best breakfast meat you’ve ever tasted in your life. That’s a fact. Now, I wasn’t a big fan of the sweet, thick teryaki sauce that is served with musubis in Hawaii, so I created my own little simplified version.
What you’ll need:
1 can of Spam (sliced into eight pieces)
4 large sheets of seaweed (each cut in half)
2 cups of cooked brown rice
How you’ll do it:
1) Heat your skillet to medium high. Cast iron produces the crispiest skin!
2) Once your skillet is heated, gently place the spam. You don’t need to add any oil because the spam has a lot of fat already. Don’t overcrowd the pan! You can do this in batches.
3) Cook the spam for about 2-3 minutes on each side until you achieve the desired crisp.
4) Once spam is cooked, let them rest on a plate lined with a paper towel.
5) Take a piece of seaweed and gently pat 1/4 cup of rice on one end. Wet your fingers so the rice won’t stick to them too much.
6) Add one piece of spam onto the rice and roll like sushi and place the musubi seam side down a plate and Voila!
7) Repeat until you are out of ingredients 🙂
