Brown Rice Sushi Bowls

Apr 8, 2015

 Sterling and I love our Monday sushi nights but I was wanting to try something different this week.

I have to thank my good friend Erin for sharing this recipe with me. I remembered her mentioning she made these bowls before so I set out to make my own.  There are a million different ways you can make the bowls, it basically boils down to how you like your sushi.  I love raw sushi but I was not brave enough to attempt my bowl with raw meat.  Crab is Sterling’s favorite so I used the good ole “K” krab:)  Gotta be honest I don’t hate the imitation crab.   My friend Erin said that she uses shrimp and the crab in her bowls so that is another option.  I have a feeling fresh crab would also be amazing.   You can sub white rice if you want but I was trying to make ours healthier.  Erin also recommended spicy mayo (mayo + sriracha) but I omitted that too and just used soy sauce.  

If you like just a veggie bowl try adding in sliced radish, pineapple and or edamame.  The options are endless.  This was an easy weeknight meal I will be making again.

  1. Yum, that sounds good!! I will try it soon. I *love* sashimi as well but don't think I'd try it at home either. Not sure the fam would like crab so I'll try shrimp first.

  2. I absolutely love this idea. Such a great way to make sushi without the fuss of rolling it.

    That looks delicious! I don't hate imitation crab either…but I think I might have to ease my way into adding anything raw into the bowl. However, ahi tuna wouldn't be a bad option!

  4. This just blew my mind – such a DUH moment. I've never been brave enough to actually make sushi at home and this is the perfect way to get the flavor without the fuss!

    Look amazingly delicious! I told a Japanese friend of mine one I liked sashimi. I promptly received a invite for dinner. Her husband had come back from sea fishing and I was served sliced raw fish he had caught, and a lot of it. It have been briefly marinated with some soy sauce and chilli. I was nervous at first once I tried it, I found it ok – but too chewy. Yours looks more up my street!
