Spam is something that I grew up eating in Hawai’i. I know that everyone has their own opinions on it and that’s completely fine with me. I’ve known people that haven’t tried spam and had already decided they didn’t like it. Okay, that’s fine. Completely fine. I think you’re missing out, but again, to each their own. Hehe. Aside from having spam musubi, spam fried rice is my next favorite way of enjoying it.

 

 

I love fried rice in general because you can put anything that you want in it. For me, my usual ingredients are spam, Chinese sausage, peas, and carrots. If I don’t have spam or Chinese sausage, I use spicy sausage or chicken breast. Sometimes if I want to add more vegetables, in addition to the peas and carrots, I add broccoli. It’s so versatile and I love that you can add anything you want and it will taste amazing.

 

 

This spam fried rice is so good that I guarantee that you’ll be having more than 1 serving. I know I do. It’s that damn good. After I take that first bite, I’m sent spiraling into foodie bliss. SO. DAMN. GOOD.

 

 

If you decide to make the best spam fried rice at home, let me know! I’d love to know what you think. If you decide to use any meats other than spam or any other vegetables, let me know! I’d love to know how you make this fried rice your own!

 

Ciao for now!

Tips On Making the Best Spam Fried Rice

 

I like to use rice that is 1 day old. When I feel like making this, I always make sure to cook my rice the day before. I feel that using day-old rice allows the rice to dry and prevents it from sticking together. If I don’t remember to make it the day before, fresh rice is fine too. It is delicious either way.

 

I love using Hot N Spicy spam. If you aren’t into spice, regular spam works in this recipe too. In fact, any flavor spam works. :)

 

I use Tamari instead of soy sauce. Yes, you can use regular soy sauce in place of it.

 

When making the spam fried rice, since there are a lot of ingredients, I like to get my ingredients prepped ahead of time. I cut the meats I’m using, portion out my soy sauce, whisk my eggs, etc. That way when I start cooking, I have everything ready to go. I find that it makes the process much faster and easier.

 

 

Spam Musubi – My favorite way of enjoying spam. You have to try this recipe if you like spam. So quick and easy to make.

 

Huli Huli Chicken – This is another popular item from the Islands. Easily cooked on a grill or a skillet. Definitely good with a side of rice or macaroni salad.

 

Hawaiian Shoyu Chicken – This dish is amazing. If you’re big on huge flavor, especially ginger, this recipe is for you!

 

Hawaiian BBQ Chicken – Another popular dish you can find in Hawai’i. So good.
