You know Hawaii loves Spam. How much so? Well, Hawaii residents and visitors consume nearly 7 million cans of Spam each year. That’s a lot of Spam! With Hawaii’s love of Spam combined with an influence of Japanese cooking, the popular Hawaii snack, Spam Musubi, evolved.
What is Spam Musubi? The ingredients are rice, rice seasoning including sesame seeds, nori (seaweed wrap), and of course, Spam. You can add a sauce like soy sauce as you like. See this link for a recipe and this link for video instructions.
I’ve had Spam Musubi and it’s really good. It’s a portable filling snack or light lunch.
You can find Spam Musubi in local-style restaurants and even in 7-Eleven stores in Hawaii.
