Sushi Bowls

We love sushi in our house - even our kids. It can be pricey going out for dinner, and buying sushi rolls from the grocery store isn't always the most tasty option. Here's a delicious and easy way to do sushi without the rolls and get the most bang for your buck.

 My little sister gave me this idea and I put my own touch on it. These will not disappoint. I could eat these for days on end. You get a mouthful of flavor in every bite.I love the cream cheese melting into the warm rice and the creamy, tangy ginger dressing as well as the salty, tangy Unagi sauce. That hint of spice from the wasabi is the cherry on top!

To keep it easy and inexpensive I just used smoked salmon, imitation crab and shrimp. You could of course use fresh fish if you have that option. Everything I bought for this I found at Walmart - like I said, keeping it simple. Enjoy!

This recipe makes about 6 servings.

Sushi Bowls 
  • 1 bag of Jasmine rice
  • 1 pkg of smoked salmon
  • 1 pkg of imitation crab or shrimp
  • 1 bottle of sushi sauce, Unagi
  • 1 jar of pickled ginger
  • 1 cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 1 small bag shredded carrots
  • 2 avocados, chopped
  • 1 pkg cream cheese, cubed/chopped
  • Soy Sauce
  • Wasabi
  • Ginger Dressing or Spicy Mayo
  • sesame seeds
  • Jar of seaweed topping
Prepare the rice according to directions on package.. I just used my rice cooker on quick mode. Be sure to use Jasmine rice if you want it to be like sushi sticky rice.

Place about 1 cup of cooked rice into serving bowls. Pour about 1 Tbsp of soy sauce over rice. Toss in salmon, crab and shrimp, avocados, cream cheese cubes, cucumbers, carrots, and ginger, Top with ginger dressing (make according to my recipe link above), spicy mayo, Unagi sauce, sesame seeds, seaweed topping and a dab of wasabi.

Serve with chopsticks and be sure to stir it all together when eating.
