Spam Musubi: Hawaii

It’s a well-known fact that Hawaiians love Spam, a molded and canned mixture of pork shoulder, ham, sugar and salt. Of their many Spam-inspired creations, the Spam musubi is the most popular dish. Served in both fine-dining settings and McDonalds alike, the local delicacy pairs a slab of Spam (cooked or uncooked) with a mound of rice and secures the two elements together with a strip of nori (dried seaweed). President Barack Obama, who hails from Hawaii, was recently seen snacking on one during a game of golf. Photo Credit: Naomi Ryono
