Musubi, also referred to as onigiri, is a Japanese snack made of rice wrapped in nori seaweed. In Hawaii, Spam musubi, rice topped with Spam and wrapped in sticky white rice, is a filling snack served at lunch, picnics, sleepovers, and any other time or place you would eat a snack.

- 4 Cups cooked short-grain white rice
- 3 Tablespoons rice vinegar
- 1/2 Cup Hawaiian Teriyaki Sauce
- 1 (12 ounce) container Spam
- 4 sheets nori
While rice is still hot, mix in the rice vinegar.
Cut the block of Spam into 8 even slices.
Marinate the Spam in the teriyaki sauce for 5 minutes. In the meantime, heat a frying pan and add a little oil.
Fry the Spam slices on each side until glazed in the sauce and a crispy on the edges.
Using wet hands or a musubi mold, form the seasoned rice into a rectangular shape.
Cut the nori sheets into 1-inch strips.
Assemble the musubi by topping the rice with a piece of Spam and wrapping it in the middle with a piece of nori.
