Rilakkuma & Kiiroitori Sushi

I love making sushi lately, if you have been following me on Instagram, you would have seen the many different ones I've made. It's great for days when I'm feeling lazy (which is almost all the time. -_-). I usually just serve them on a sushi board, as it saves me the trouble of arranging the side dishes in a bento, but they are perfect for packing in bentos as well.

Spam musubi, a popuar Hawaiian food, which composed of a piece of grilled Spam on top of rice. So sinful but anything with Spam just tastes so good.

I used a Rilakkuma cutter to cut out Spam first, before pan-frying them till brown.

The details were done using two different coloured cheese and nori.

I've seen Kiiroitiori sushi made using tamagoyaki before, but I decided to use hard boiled egg for mine instead. I soaked the hard boiled egg in turmeric water to get the yellow colour.

I sliced the hard boiled egg in half so it sits better on the rice. Can you spot the Mount Fuji saucer? Love the design, but it's a little tricky to pour the soy sauce in nicely. Maybe it's because I've butter fingers, lol. Sometimes I find it difficult to reprimand the boys for being clumsy, like knocking over the glass of water on the table, because I accidentally do it too at times, oops.

Ingredients used for the details here were just carrots and nori. I attached on his wings, which was cut out from quail egg, using pasta sticks. Similarly, the carrots were attached on the same way, I'm using cooked carrots here so they are soft. If you are using raw carrots, you can spread on a little mayonnaise, so they will "stick" onto the egg.

    1. Ah tks, have added in the info. I used pasta sticks to attach them on, the carrots are cooked. If you are using raw carrots, you can spread on a little mayonnaise so they will "stick".

    1. yup, very similar to luncheon meat, Spam is the brand. Replace with thickly cut ham, or vegetarian luncheon meat.
