Teriyaki Spam Musubi is a quick and delicious dish that could satisfy any craving!
- 1 can Spam of your choice
- 3 sheets Nori (seaweed)
- 2 cups short grain rice, rinsed
- 4 tbsp furikake
- 3 tbsp tamari
- 2 tbsp mirin
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- Add your two cups of short grain rice to a strainer and rinse until water runs clear. This could take a few minutes. Put your rinsed rice into your rice cooker. Add 3 cups of water and salt to taste. Turn your rice cooker on and allow your rice to cook.
- While your rice is cooking combine mirin, tamari (or soy sauce), and sesame oil in a bowl and whisk. Set aside
- Cut your spam with your spam cutter into 12 even slices. If you do not have a cutter do your best to slice the spam evenly.
- Set a shallow frying pan on the stove over medium heat. Spray the pan with non-stick spray of your choosing and place half of the spam in the pan. Allow to brown for 1-3 mins and flip. Allow second side to brown for another 1-3 minutes and then add half of your teriyaki sauce. Simmer the sauce until it thickens, and then repeat with the remaining spam and teriyaki being careful not to burn the teriyaki.
- To assemble the musubi, cut your nori sheets in half. Place a half of 1 nori sheet down on your surface. Placed the bottom of the musubi mold in the middle of the sheet and remove the top (the press). Fill the mold half way up with rice and then liberally sprinkle the furikake on top of the rice. Add 1 slice of cooked spam and then use the press to press the mixture down. Use a good amount of pressure here. While the press is still in the mold lift the bottom of the mold off the nori leaving behind the rice and spam.
- Use the end of the nori closest to you and wrap it around the rice and spam and then roll until your rice is completely covered with the nori. The moisture of the rice should seal the nori but if it does not you can use a bit of water on your finger.
- Cut the roll in half and enjoy!
