Found this recipe on the net. Serve with macaroni salad to make it a Hawaii dish! Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 5 cups cooked sushi rice (Room Temperature)
  • 12 ounces Spam
  • 4 tablespoons mirin
  • 5 sheets nori, seaweed (cut in half lengthwise)
  • 6 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • Nori Goma Furikake, japanese seasoning (Furikake)


  1. Open SPAM can and remove SPAM, set aside. Open both ends of can and wash thoroughly.
  2. Cut SPAM into 10 slices and fry until crispy. Let drain.
  3. In another pan, combine Soy Sauce, Mirin, and Sugar. Bring to boil over medium-high heat and then reduce to low.
  4. Add the SPAM slices to the pan and make sure they are coated in the sauce. Simmer on low until sauce thickens and then remove SPAM.
  5. Lay the sheet of Nori on a clean surface. Place the clean SPAM can on the lower third of the Nori. Fill the mold (the SPAM can) with rice and press flat until the rice is 3/4" high.
  6. Sprinkle rice with Furikaki and the top with a piece of the SPAM.
  7. Remove the mold and place it in a bowl of water to keep it clean.
  8. Fold the Nori over the SPAM and Sushi Rice and roll until it is completely wrapped. Moisten the end of the Nori to seal.
  9. Repeat this for the rest of the SPAM slices.

I used to make this a few times a year when I lived in Hawaii and it was my favorite snack at the movies. I still had my musubi maker (9 years later!) and the family keeps asking me to make them because I rave about them. But it's hard. I worry they will not like them! *laugh* So, this Christmas, I made them and they are sitting on the table in there waiting to go. I put two strips of nori over them and cut them in half. My son liked it, and I must say they were absolutely wonderful! Just like I remember. I did forget to buy furikake, but they were still amazing. Thank you for sharing this recipe. It brings back so many smiles. Edit: Wow - the family loved them too... I came home with an empty dish! Yay!
