In Hawaii, around 7 million cans of Spam are consumed each year.  How did this love affair with Spam start you ask?

During World War II, the delivery of fresh meat became difficult and therefore army soldiers were given this shelf stable meat instead. 

At the same time it was introduced to the Pacific Islands and immediately absorbed into native diets gaining popularity from there.

The Hawaiians use Spam in a variety of creative ways but the most common ways are Spam musubi and in fried rice.  If you’re interested in checking out other ways to eat spam, make sure to check out our Spam musubi in a bowl recipe. 

Of course, this is a low-carb/keto version of spam fried rice so in place of rice, we use cauliflower rice and have found it to be a wonderful substitution. 

Our kids eat it up without ever saying a word.  We normally use frozen cauliflower rice for its ease and accessibility but if you don’t have access to it, then making your own is the way to go. 

All you need is a head of cauliflower and a food processor!
