Best Use of the Worst Meat

Spam Musubi

Here's a fun fact you can whip out at a party sometime: Hawaii leads all states in per-capita Spam consumption. Islanders were forced to rely on the canned meat back in wartime, and what started as a ration turned into a passion. So now there's a little delicacy known as Spam musubi: a slab of Spam upon a bed of sticky rice, all of it wrapped in seaweed. If you tell this tale and folks still don't believe you, tell them to head to Hawaii BBQ Grill on Olive Boulevard. Spam musubi there costs less than three bucks. Hell, why not go whole hog and whip out the real deal at a party sometime? A platter of Spam musubi is a surefire conversation starter.
