Crispy Spam Musubi Ingredients

  • vegetable oil to pan-fry
  • 1 340-gram can Spam teriyaki-flavored, sliced lengthwise into 6 pieces
  • 3 cups Japanese rice or short-grain white rice
  • 6 slices cheddar cheese cut lengthwise in half
  • 3 sheets Nori cut lengthwise in half
  • 1 Cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 large Egg beaten
  • 1 Cup Japanese breadcrumbs
  • green onions Chopped, for garnish

Instructions
 

  • Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Pan-fry Spam slices until lightly browned, about 1 minute per side. Drain on paper towels.
  • Layer ¼ cup rice, a cheese strip, a Spam slice, another cheese strip, and another ¼ cup rice in a musubi mold (see tip). Press down firmly on musubi to make sure the layers hold. Unmold musubi then wrap with a nori sheet. Repeat with remaining ingredients to make 5 more pieces. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Heat oil in a deep pan over medium heat. Place flour, egg, and breadcrumbs in separate containers. Dredge each musubi in flour, dip in egg, then coat with breadcrumbs. Deep-fry until golden brown on all sides, about 2 minutes. Drain on paper towels.
  • Slice Spam musubi in half. Garnish with green onions, if desired. Serve immediately.
