Spam Onigiri (Spam Musubi) can be gobbled up immediately or wrapped up and saved for a yummy snack later in the day. This easy recipe is ideal for busy families and students, or a nice, lazy sunday morning with a cup of hot green tea.
If you are sensitive to salt, you can adjust it by cutting spam thinly or reducing salt when making rice ball.
For seafood sensitive stomachs, omit the dried sardines, bonito flakes, and eel sauce, and substitute with 1 Tbsp of Rice Vinegar and 1 Tbsp of Sugar (or to taste) to mix into the rice.
