Spam & Egg Onigiri Sandwich (Onigirazu)

My mother used to make sandwiches with these ingredients, so I thought if it goes well with bread, it must go well with cooked rice - it does!

Serves 1 Prep: 10 min Cook: 5 min

Ingredients

Spam (large) 1
Egg 1
Salt a pinch
Mayonnaise 1 tsp
Ketchup 1 tsp
Cucumber slices 5
Nori sheet 1
Cooked rice 100-110g

Method

1
Use a large tin of spam and slice a 5mm section of the largest side. Cut 2 slices if you only have the small tin.
2
It's quite huge, isn't it?!
3
Add a pinch of salt to the beaten egg and fry to the same size as the spam.
4
Fry the spam in the same pan. You won't need any oil as it comes out from the spam.
5
Cut the cucumber 2-3mm thick into 5 slices.
6
Make the sauce: mix the ketchup and mayonnaise together in a small bowl.
7
Put some cling film on a chopping board and put a nori sheet on top in a diamond shape ◆.
8
Put half of the rice in the centre of the nori and spread out flat in a square shape. Place the scrambled egg on top.
9
Arrange the cucumber slices on top then the sauce from Step 6.
10
Place the spam on top and finally the remaining rice.
11
With the cling film, fold over the top and bottom corners of the seaweed to overlap in the middle and form a rectangle shape. Secure for 30 seconds until the rice sticks firmly.
12
Repeat with the left and right corners to overlap in the middle. Hold it together firmly.
13
After 4-5 minutes, the nori sheet will soften. Use a wet knife to cut in half diagonally (the cling film is still on).
14
Remove the cling film, it's ready to serve.

Tips & Note

Spam is an essential ingredient for me, because I'm from Okinawa. This will have a good flavour because of the saltiness of the spam and the sauce.
