I have read somewhere that Hawaii has the highest per capita
consumption of Spam in the world. (I mean the pink meaty stuff, not the annoying digital stuff).
Does anyone know any good Hawaiian Spam recipes?

Is there such a thing as a "good" spam recipe?

Give this one a try... It's always a crowd pleaser!


1 can Spam cut into 10 slices
3 1/2 cup steamed rice
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup shoyu (soy sauce)
1 tsp. rice vinegar
5 sheets sushi nori (seaweed)
Furikake Nori

Fry Spam until light brown and remove from pan.
Heat sugar, shoyu and rice vinegar until sugar is dissolved then return Spam to pan, cooking for 1 minute.

Using Musubi mold: (You can also use the Spam can to mold the rice so it's the same size as the Spam.)
Place nori on flat surface and center mold on top of nori
Place rice in mold and press down (rice should be 1/2" thick)
Sprinkle Furikake Nori over rice
Place seasoned Spam on rice
Add another 1/2" of rice on top of Spam and press down
Lift mold off then wrap nori around the rice
Turn musubi over placing on fold allowing the nori to seal
Slice & Enjoy!

And here's a recipe for SPAM Cupcakes that DawnTiki posted a while back.
(maybe not Hawaiian, but how can you not love SPAM cupcakes?)

Ummmmm...... SPAM...... Either ya love it or hate it.

I believe that Hawaii and Alaska hold records for the most SPAM eaten.

Try a real Hawaiian breakfast! The Loco Moco!

Start off with a bed of white rice.
Top with fried SPAM (cubed, sticks or slabs...hamburger patty can be used instead of SPAM...but why?)
Top SPAM with one or two eggs over easy
Pour brown gravy over the top.

Primo grinds. Don't knock it until you tried it.

I think American Samoa has a higher Per Capita consumption of Spam, but Hawaii has a higher Total consumption.

As for recipies, I usually just fry it up 'til it's getting browned & a little crispy, then brush it with some nice Teri sauce & cook for about a minute a side to finish. I like to serve this with King's Hawaiian Bread French Toast.

Spam musubi has always been a crowd favorite at all of my tiki and backyard gatherings. I use variations on Tiki Royale's recipe.. mine are far less traditional but crowd pleasing. Instead of frying the Spam in sugar, soy, and rice vinegar mixture, I use bottled sauces from the local market. Of those I have tried, the sauces made by Iron Chef are the favorite. The General Tso and the Orange Ginger glaze work well.

After I fry the Spam using the sauce as flavoring, I add a small amount of the same sauce to the rice as I am molding it. This gives the rice some flavor as well as the salty & sweet flavor of the Spam.

Kids even like this stuff too!!

Have a try.

SPAM is definately one of my favorite foods! I just love to fry it crispy and eat it on bread with mustard. mmmmmmm.

I will try that musubi recipe. My step son is Japanese and so we eat a lot of things like that. Sounds yummy!

I occasionally like SPAM in a stir fry of SPAM, red onions, and pineapple chunks served on rice. I came up with this myself then later saw it on a TV show being made in a Hawaiian "local kine" diner, so I guess one doesn't have to be secretive about the dish.

For a big Tiki party a few years back I made skewers of SPAM, red onion, and pineapple chunks. My sister and friends who helped grill food all went "Oooh-!" when the saw the tray of "raw" skewers. But the grilled skewers were the first food gone. The same sister just brought up the skewers the other day to some friends and the response was the same as it always is when one a dish with SPAM is described as good..."SPAM?! Really? SPAM?!" Maybe Hormel should use that as a marketing line..."Yes, SPAM. Really."

Sorry Sabu

Sabu's Spicy Coconut SPAM Skewers

1/2 cup apricot jam
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1/2 cup canned coconut milk
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
2 tablespoons curry powder
1/4 heaping teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 can Spam, cut into cubes
1 cup shredded sweetened coconut
wooden skewers

Combine all ingredients, except Spam and coconut (and skewers of course), in a saucepan and heat while stirring until boiling. Reduce heat to medium/low and allow marinade to reduce somewhat, (about 15 minutes), stirring occasionally. Put Spam chunks in a pan and pour most of the marinade on top, saving a small portion in a container for later. Make sure all sides of the Spam is coated with the marinade and let pan sit in a refrigerator at least 2 hours.

Toast the coconut on a baking sheet or shallow pan in a 350-degree oven, turning the coconut with a spatula periodically so that it is a light brown. (dark brown works too, so don't worry if it's overdone).

Place the Spam chunks on the skewers and grill until browned, brushing with the marinade in the pan. Remove from the grill and brush with the reserved marinade you had set-aside at the beginning. Roll in toasted coconut and serve on Ti Leaf. Makes 12 skewers.

1 can SPAM
ti leaves
aluminum foil

Built a charcoal fire in the sand. Wrap SPAM in ti leaves, then in foil. Place in glowing coals.
