Agedashi SPAM

BT Calgary | posted Monday, Jan 5th, 2015

Each Monday this month we’re challenging Calgary’s best chefs to create a dish featuring Spam! Here to kick it off for us is Pierre Lamielle!

Agedashi Spam


  • Kombu (dried seaweed)
  • Dashi (dried fish flakes)
  • Soy sauce
  • Rice wine vinegar
  • 1 can of Spam
  • 1/2 cup of cornstarch
  • Oil for frying


  • Sliced green onions
  • Fresh ginger, grated


  1. Place kombu and bonito flakes in a bowl. Cover with boiling water. Leave to cool, strain and chill until needed.
  2. Adjust seasoning to your taste with rice wine vinegar and soy sauce.
  3. Fill a deep pot with 3 inches of frying oil.
  4. Cut Spam into two-bite cubes. Toss in rice flour or corn starch, ensuring an even and thorough covering.
  5. Deep fry the cubes, making sure all sides brown evenly. Remove from oil and place on a piece of paper towel. You will need to eat them quickly.
  6. Serve three cubes of hot and crispy Spam with a generous glug of your dashi dressing. Top with freshly grated ginger and finely sliced green onions.

Eat immediately while the spam is crunchy and hot!
