READY IN: 50mins
YIELD: 10 musubis


  • 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

  • Open SPAM can and remove SPAM, set aside. Open both ends of can and wash thoroughly.
  • Cut SPAM into 10 slices and fry until crispy. Let drain.
  • In another pan, combine Soy Sauce, Mirin, and Sugar. Bring to boil over medium-high heat and then reduce to low.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Sprinkle rice with Furikaki and the top with a piece of the SPAM.
  • Remove the mold and place it in a bowl of water to keep it clean.
  • Fold the Nori over the SPAM and Sushi Rice and roll until it is completely wrapped. Moisten the end of the Nori to seal.
  • Repeat this for the rest of the SPAM slices.
