How to Make Hawaiian-Style Spam Musubi
If you've never tried Spam musubi, now is the perfect time! We're obsessed with homemade sushi rolls, and this tasty snack is no exception. Spam musubi is a popular snack and lunch in Hawaii and features white rice and grilled Spam wrapped in dried seaweed. (We put our own twist on it by adding scrambled eggs!) For a recipe so delicious, these tasty rice bites are surprisingly easy to make – just grill up the Spam, cook the eggs, and wrap everything in dried seaweed. Check out the steps below to get started, and let us know your thoughts in the comments!
- 1 can Spam
- 5 cups Japanese rice
- 4 eggs
- salt and pepper
- 1/2 cup spring onions, finely chopped
- dried seaweed sheets
- 4 tbsp. soy sauce
- 2 tbsp. water
- 4 tbsp. ketchup
- 4 tbsp. brown sugar
Makes 10 pieces of musubi.
Preparing the Spam:
- Cut seaweed in half. Lay them shiny side down (so that the rough side is to you). Set aside.
- Open the can and remove the spam. Cut the spam horizontally into slices. (Important: Do not throw away your can! It will be used as the musubi mold.)
- Cook the spam until slightly brown. Add soy sauce, water, ketchup and brown sugar.
- Cook for 2 more minutes, then set aside.
Cooking the Eggs:
- Crack 4 eggs into a medium bowl. Add salt, pepper, and chopped spring onions.
- Scramble ingredients with a whisk or fork.
- Pour into a loaf dish and bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- After the eggs have cooled, remove from the dish and cut into the same shape as the spam slices.
Assembling the Musubi:
- Cover the inside of your Spam can with cling wrap. Make sure there is enough for you to pull the cling wrap out.
- Put a 2-inch strip of nori in the middle part of the can. Make sure it is long enough to cover your desired musubi thickness.
- Put the omelette slice first. Then the spam slice. Lastly, half a cup of rice.
- Flatten with a spoon.
- Wrap with the nori. Wet the nori edges to seal it.
