To Make the Spam
In a small bowl, whisk the soy sauce, sugar and mirin (if using). Set aside.
Lightly coat the bottom of a large skillet with oil and heat over medium. Fry the Spam slices until evenly browned and crispy, 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Turn off the heat. Working quickly to avoid burning, add the soy mixture and turn the Spam slices until evenly coated in glaze. Immediately transfer the Spam slices and glaze to a plate.
Molding the Masubi
To mold the musubi, start by placing a strip of nori, rough side up, on a cutting board or clean work surface. Place a Spam musubi maker mold over it, in the middle, then place a slice of Spam into the mold. (If you don’t have a mold, you can line a clean Spam can with plastic wrap instead, and place a slice of Spam at the bottom.) Sprinkle ¼ teaspoon furikake over the Spam, then fill the mold or can with a generous mound of rice. Press the rice firmly with the musubi maker press or with your hands until it is 3/4- to 1-inch thick, adding more rice as needed.
Use the press to hold the rice down with one hand and pull the mold upward to unmold the musubi with your other hand. (If you’re using the Spam can, gently lift the Spam and rice out of the can by gently Spam-rice stack, bringing both ends of the strip to the middle, folding one over the other, and flipping it over so the seam is down and the Spam is facing up. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Serve immediately or wrap with plastic wrap to take with you on the go.
To Make the Dressing
Add lime juice, olive oil, honey, red pepper flakes, white vinegar, salt, and pepper to a small bowl and whisk to incoporate
To Assemble the Salad
In a large mixing bowl, add pineapple, cucumber, red onion, bell pepper, and cilantro. Pour dressing over the salad and toss until every inch of the blend is covered with the vinaigrette. Refrigerate until ready to serve!
My 11 year old daughter was born to cook and she had the time of her life!
She learned a lot of cooking skills, made a ton of great food and played games in the process.
They also gave her a very nice printed booklet with recipes, and made a wonderful YouTube video of the class.

I used them last week for my twins (boy/girl) 9th birthday party. It was fantastic!
The location, decorations, etc. were all top notch.
They handled all the details from start to finish (set up and clean up too!)

Best summer camp my 8 year old daughter ever had! She's comfortable and confident in the kitchen now,
either cracking eggs, or rolling cookie dough, or mixing on the side.
She is always so happy at the end of day talking about what they learned!
Our kids are 14 and 12, and enjoy cooking immensely.
This is a wonderful little school - easy-going and knowledgeable instructors,
inviting little kitchen, very clean and friendly.

I love to cook with my daughter.
She has taught both my husband and her friends how to cook these dishes.
Her confidence in the kitchen is astounding.
This is the ONLY camp that she has asked to repeat next year.
My 7 year old son has been begging for cooking lessons. He had a blast!
They made so much food, Dad enjoyed it for dinner and
he was so impressed that his son had made it all from scratch.
