Hawaiian Eats...Spam Musubi Recipe

So we are still having Hawaii withdrawls after almost two months after our honeymoon trip =(

Here's another easy, cheap, and delicious recipe straight from the Aloha State!!!!  SPAM MUSUBI!!!

1 Can of Spam
2 Cups of Rice (Short Grain/ Sushi Rice)
7 Tbsp of Rice Vinegar
1/4 Cup of Soy Sauce
1/4 Cup of Oyster Sauce
1/3 Cup of Sugar
4-6 Sheets of Nori (Seaweed Sheets).

We started by cooking the rice in a rice cooker.  We made it slightly sticky-er than usual (i.e. added a tiny bit more water).  Once rice is cooked, transfer rice onto a large mixing bowl.  Pour the 7 Tbsp of rice wine over the rice and mix well.

Mix the the soy sauce, oyster sauce, and sugar together in a mixing bowl. 

Slice the spam lengthwise about 1/2" thick.  Then coat the spam with the soy sauce/oyster sauce mixture.

Now heat up a skillet to medium high heat.  Place the spam on the pan and grill each side approximately 3-4 minutes or until browned.

Slice the nori in half with a sharp knife or with kitchen shears.  Place a slice of spam in the middle of the nori, followed by about 3 tablespoons of rice.  Form the rice into the shape of  the spam.

Then, seal the edges with a tiny bit of water.  That is all there is to it.  You can play around and mix up the ingredients by adding cheese, egg, fried chicken, or bacon.  The possibilities are endless!
