Soft rice wrapped in a good quality seaweed featuring braised mouthwatering pan fried spam. My kids love this simple recipe for Spam Musubi. Easy to make with very little clean up, these rolls make for an interesting and affordable meal. Not sure what it is about slightly salty food, but my kids tear this stuff up. It is satisfying as a parent to watch your kids have fun making their own food in the kitchen using your parent approved recipe. This stuff travels well also, pack some to take with you and enjoy this handheld tummy tamer with you on the go.
Watch this video with the kids, have them follow the simple instructions below and they will bo on their way to self meal preparation. This is also easy to make for those that may have a limited kitchen space and just want to make a snack or meal that is tasty and filling.

- 5-6 cups cooked sushi rice or short-grain white rice
- 12 oz spam
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 2 tbsp granulated sugar
- 3-4 sheets sushi nori (dry seaweed) cut into ¼ – ⅓
- Cut the spam horizontally into 8-10 slices (depending how thick you prefer); set aside. Heat the non-stick pan to medium. Add sugar, soy sauce and mix. Place the sliced spam in the pan. Cook both sides of the spam until lightly brown and crisp.
- Place on the sushi nori (dry seaweed) on a cutting board/plate. Put the musubi mold in the center of sushi nori. Add ½ cup of rice in the musubi mold and use the mold top to press the rice down firmly; remove the mold. Place cooked spam on top of the rice. Wrap the sushi nori around the rice and spam. Musubi can hack: use an empty spam can. Place plastic wrap in the can, add rice and use a spoon to press the rice down. Pull the plastic wrap out of the can, remove the rice and place on top (center) of the sushi nori. Then, place the spam on top of the rice. Wrap the sushi nori around the rice and spam.
Serve immediately & enjoy!
