3 cups uncooked rice
5-6 sheets or large size nori
1 can of spam
yoshida sauce (if you can't find this, 2 parts soy sauce 1 part sugar will do)
*yields 5 to 6 rolls
To get started you'll also need a spam musubi press/sushi mold. Oh yes, there's a sushi mold made especially for spam musubi. This is serious stuff.
1. Cook rice as usual and let cool.
2. Cut spam into 10-12 slices. In a a large frying pan cook the spam in the yoshida sauce so sides are coated with sauce (about 7 min). You want the sauce to thicken up.
3. With the rough side of the nori facing up, place the mold on the center of the nori.
4. Fill the mold about 1/4 high with rice. Pack it down lightly with the top press.
5. Add two slices of spam. Cover spam with the same amount of rice that was added on the bottom. Press again.
6. Pull the mold off while holding the top press on it. Wrap the nori around the rice and spam. Turn over so the seam is on the bottom. It should now look like the picture to the left.
7. Slice the spam musubi in half and then slice those two pieces in half, continue this until you have 8 pieces. Done
*For easier cutting, run the knife through a lemon. This will prevent it from sticking.
*The rolls can be wrapped up in plastic wrap until you plan to slice them.
Do not place them in the fridge, this will make the rice hard. Spam musubi should me served the same day it's made.
