Spam musubi

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
4 cups Uncooked Japanese rice
(kind that sticks together after cooking)
4 cups Water; to cook rice
5 Sushi nori sheets; (seaweed in big squares)
1 can Spam or Spam Lite -; (12 oz)
¼ cup Soy sauce
¼ cup Sugar
¼ cup Rice wine; (mirin or aji-mirin)

Cook rice in rice cooker for best results, allow approximately 20 to 25 minutes. If no rice cooker is available pour rice and water into a large saucepan that is made from heavy material. Heat water and rice until boiling then immediately turn down and simmer for approxiamately 20 to 25 minutes, or until soft.

Boil soy sauce, sugar and rice wine. After it boils, turn off flame. Cut spam into ¼-inch wide slices. Fry in pan. Soak fried spam in soy sauce mixture.

Line a musubi-maker with a piece of waxed paper that is the same size as the sushi nori. Then place sushi nori inside so that both edges stick straight up. Spread cooked rice across bottom of musubi maker, on top of nori (¼-inch high is fine). Place two pieces of Spam in musubi maker on top of rice. Spam should cover most of the length of the musubi maker.

Spread more cooked rice on top of Spam, about ¼-inch high. Fold over one side of the nori. Use musubi maker insert to press down on top of nori, rice and spam. Fold over other side of nori and press down. Remove musubi log from maker, but leave wax paper for next use. Cut each log into four pieces.
