ACTIVE TIME: 30 MIN. I MAKES: 5
- 1 1/2 teaspoons rice vinegar (mirin)
- 1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons tamari
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- Furikake seasoning
- 1 can of Spam
- 2 cups of cooked white rice, I prefer jasmine
- 5 Nori strips
- Cooking oil
- Start by slicing your spam in five thick slices.
- Bring a large nonstick skillet to medium heat and add a drizzle of your preferred cooking oil. Add the spam slices in a single layer and fry on both sides.
- While the spam is frying, mix the glaze ingredients together in a small bowl.
- When the spam is fried on both sides, turn the heat to medium-low and add the glaze mixture.
- Allow to cook until the glaze thickens, flipping the spam a few times to become fully covered in the sauce. Remove from the heat and set aside.
- Next, assemble the musubi. I recommend purchasing a musubi mold, however using the empty Spam with plastic wrap will also work.
- Start with a strip of nori and carefully place a slice of spam on top. Next add a sprinkle of furikake seasoning. Add a layer of rice and pack it down to compress. Lastly, lay the ends of the nori strips together to seal the musubi on the bottom.
- Remove from the mold or can and wrap with plastic wrap. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.
- Serve warm or cold.
