Quick and Easy Recipe: Furikake SPAM Musubi

May 24, 2013

Are you a fan of SPAM? We're not ashamed to admit that, yes, we are! We love SPAM musubi, the popular Hawaiian creation, so we took things a step further and rolled our rice in furikake, a flavorful Japanese condiment of seasoned dried seaweed and other flavors. The furikake we used was sesame seed, but any flavor would be just as tasty. This quick and easy recipe makes for a great lunch, snack, or grab and go meal!

Sesame Furikake SPAM Musubi

1 can SPAM
Short-grain rice, cooked
Optional: 1 nori sheet, cut into approx. 1 x 6-inch strips

Wet hands slightly and form warm cooked rice in your hands. Shape into a rectangle. Or, place about 1 cup of rice onto a sheet of plastic wrap; roll into a tight tube, creating a rectangle.

Slice SPAM lengthwise into 1/4-inches slices. Heat a saute pan over medium-high heat. Fry SPAM slices until crispy on both sides.

Meanwhile, pour about 1/4 cup of furikake onto a small plate. Roll rice until covered on all sides, then wrap a nori strip around the rice (optional). Place a slice of SPAM on each piece of rice.

Best enjoyed warm.

*Look for furikake in the Asian section of your supermarket, or on Amazon.com
