Looking for something simple, but delicious to make? I present to you the Spam Katsu Musubi (S/O to Bruddah Moy for the recipe and idea). The wifey and I are huge Spam Musubi fans, so we had to give this a try. It’s fairly simple, but does take some work.
- 2 cans of Spam (we use Spam Lite because we still try to stay fit)
- Roasted Seaweed
- Katsu Sauce
- Corn Starch
- Panko (we have a whole lot of Panko and it’s evident in that red jelly bucket)
- 4 Eggs
- Cook your rice.
- Mix the Panko and Corn Starch in a bowl.
- Crack open 4 eggs in a separate bowl and mix them well.
- Slice the Spam according to the thickness that you want.
- Dip all Spam slices in eggs and then coat in Panko/Corn Starch mix.
- Fry Spam in pan (must use a lot of oil to get that nice golden brown color)
- To shape the rice, use the Spam container. I like to smash the rice down tightly and then use the container to shape the rice.
- Break the Seaweed in half. Place the shaped rice in the middle of the Seaweed and top if with Furikaki. Pour some Katsu sauce over the rice and then lay down a piece of fried Spam on top. Wrap the Seaweed around the concoction and pour some more Katsu sauce to seal the Seaweed together.
Optional: You can add a layer of scrambled eggs between the rice and the fried spam, just like the first picture.
