Kauai Goteborg Musubi
Goteborg Sausage Musubi - A classic popular snack with origins from my mom’s hometown on the island of Kauai, this Swedish sausage is now found in Oahu supermarkets. It reminds me of a hard peppered salami. You can now find the musubis at a handful of local take out locations and a favorite addition along-side our ever-so-popular Spam Musubis.
3 cups rice, rinsed
3 cups water
salt, as needed
3/4 lbGoteborg sausage, 1/8-inch slices
1-2 tablespoons vegetable oil, optional, as needed
1/4 cup favorite nori furikake, as needed
Place washed rice in rice cooker with water. Cook as directed. In a skillet over medium heat; cook sausage in optional oil until slightly charred as desired. Note: The Gotegborg releases oils, so I usually omit the oil. Drain on paper towels. Wet hands and lightly sprinkle with salt. Shape musubi rounds to fit size of sausage; pressing rice to shape onto sausage. Sprinkle with furikake. *Substitute Hard Salami if Goteborg Sausage is unavailable. Serves 6-8.
