Anyone who knows how to fry and cook rice can probably make Spam musubi in a heartbeat, but tiny Spam musubi, ladies and gentlemen, is another story.
See, it’s not the same when your fingers are larger than the ingredients you need. While Spam musubi is a simple meal, making a tiny one requires a little more dexterity.
If you haven’t heard already, Tiny Kitchen by Tastemade prepares tiny food using tiny kitchenware in — you guessed it — a tiny kitchen.
As seen in the video, making tiny Spam musubi starts with preparing some sauce added to the Spam cutlet while it’s fried.
Pre-cooked rice is then placed on a wooden mold.
Spam is put on top of the rice.
Finally, a strip of nori is wrapped around the center.
Spam musubi, which takes inspiration from onigiri, became popular in Hawaii after World War II. Today, it is sold in many convenience stores and supermarkets as a quick and easy snack.
