Got Spam…Musubi?

Do you know why Spam is number one in Hawaii? It’s because of SPAM Musubi. It is a popular snack and lunch food in Hawaii composed a slice of grilled Spam atop of a block of rice, wrapped together with nori in the tradition of Japanese omusubi. Inexpensive and portable, spam musubi is commonly found near cash registers in convenience stores all over Hawaii. Typical preparation begins with grilling slices of spam, sometimes with a light teriyaki flavor. An acrylic mold (often the shape of a slice of spam) is then placed over a long, narrow piece of nori and rice is pressed into the mold. The grilled spam is placed over the rice before the mold is removed. The nori is then wrapped over the top and around the musubi.

Sometimes you see scrabbled egg between the Spam and Rice for an easy quick breakfast. Also now you see different type of musubi’s not just Spam, there is Slice Hotdog and Fried Chicken musubi’s.
