Dorothy's Spam Musubi & Mac Salad Recipes

April 27, 2020
Hawaiian Lunch

I was craving some Hawaiian food over the weekend and got inspired after I saw one of my friends post a picture of their Hawaiian mac salad. So I hit up my friend for the recipe, and maaaaan did it deliver! That mac salad was soooooo good! He said after you make it, you have to let it sit for at least 4 hours in the fridge (best if left overnight).

So, I left it over night and the next day I made a family favorite, spam musubi!! Both are really easy to make! Here's how:

Spam Musubi Recipe:

Musubi

Ingredients:

-seaweed sheets (nori)

-1 can of spam (sliced to your desired thickness and cooked)

-plum sauce

-furikake

-cooked rice

 

Tools:

Musubi Press (I got a double press, but a single press will work fine, too. I happened to find the double press at Marukai market off of Clairemont Mesa Blvd and the 163).

 

Musubi directions

Directions:

1.On a flat surface, place a sheet of seaweed down, then lay your musubi press on top of it. Put a layer of cook rice inside the press, then press it down.

2. Sprinkle furikake over the rice

3. Add a teaspoon of plum sauce (if you're using a single press, use half a teaspoon of plum sauce) and spread it over the rice

4. Lay spam on top

5.Use the top of the musubi press to press down gently on the spam, and lift the outside mold.

6. Lastly, roll your musubi!
