Spam Onigiri

Posted by in Bento, General

A visit to Mitsuwa always turn into a food trip for our family. We love that there is a variety of food to choose from their concessionaires. One of these is Omusubi Gonbei, they offer a mouth watering array of rice balls with various fillings. I was inspired to make this Spam Omusubi after seeing their various omusubi on display.

I have already featured several omusubi a.k.a onigiri recipes in this blog which shows how just how much we love it.

It’s easy to make this specially if you have an onigiri mold.

First, prepare your filling by frying several slices of spam until brown and crisp on the edges. Then cut to size that will fit inside your rice mold.

Take your onigiri mold and lay it on a plate. Add a couple of tablespoons of steamed white rice inside. Then place your spam filling in the middle. Add more rice on top of your filling and smoothen the top a bit. Place the lid on top and press down hard. Carefully remove your mold before releasing the lid. Sprinkle some furikake on top of your onigiri before wrapping with nori (seaweed).

You can place some pieces of spam bits on top of the rice ball for presentation.
