  • 1 cup sushi rice
  • 1 can of SPAM (7 ounce size)
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 5 sheets of nori
  • Optional: thinly sliced cucumber, avocado, jalapeño


  1. Rinse the rice unless your rice package says it’s been pre-rinsed. Combine in a pot with 1 1/2 cups water and cover. Bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes.
  2. While rice cooks, slice Spam into 5 or 6 slices. Place in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Fry, flipping occasionally, for a few minutes until browned and crispy around the edges. Mix honey, soy sauce and garlic together and spoon over Spam slices. Turn again to allow the sauce to caramelize slightly. Turn off heat but leave them in the pan to stay warm.
  3. Cut nori sheets in half lengthwise.
  4. Pack about 1/3 cup of warm rice into the empty Spam can. Pack it in tightly. Flip can and tap gently to get the rice block out.
  5. Lay 1/2 nori sheet on a cutting board, place a Spam slice across the center. Top with rice block and any other ingredients you like.
  6. Wet the ends of the nori and wrap them up and around the rice, press to seal.
  7. Serve!
