sliced into 8 even slices
cooked sushi rice
White cheese – cut into Totoro tummies and eyeballs
nori – cut into eyeballs, noses, whiskers, and tummy triangles
To cook the Spam
In a saucepan, combine soy sauce, sugar, and sake. Bring to a boil and set it aside.
Fry Spam on each side over medium heat until slightly crispy. Add the teriyaki sauce and fry until both sides of the Spam gets a brown color due to the Maillard reaction.
To assemble the sushi
Cut cheese and seaweed.
Shape your rice using a musubi mold or your hands.
Top the rice with the cooked Spam and Totoro face and tummy.
Toothpicks come in handy when you are adding cut seaweed to Totoro’s faces. Those tiny cut seaweeds can stick to your hands.
