Spam Musubi




  • 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


  1. Start by slicing your spam in five thick slices.
  2. 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.
  3. While the spam is frying, mix the glaze ingredients together in a small bowl.
  4. When the spam is fried on both sides, turn the heat to medium-low and add the glaze mixture.
  5. 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.
  6. Next, assemble the musubi. I recommend purchasing a musubi mold, however using the empty Spam with plastic wrap will also work.
  7. 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.
  8. Remove from the mold or can and wrap with plastic wrap. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.
  9. Serve warm or cold.
