Week Night Dinner - Deconstructed Sushi Bowl

Quick & Easy Week Night Dinner - Deconstructed Sushi Bowl

My husband and I love sushi, but we tend to rack up quite a hefty bill when eating out. This recipe gives you all the sushi flavors you love with little knowledge of rolling sushi and minimal cost. Not only is it easy, but it is delicious and super quick. Perfect for a week night dinner. See my other week night dinners: Bolognese, Mushroom Parmesan Risotto, Honey Garlic Shrimp.

Quick & Easy Deconstructed Sushi Bowl

HERE IS WHAT YOU NEED: 1 cup Boxed white rice (1 bag if you use boil in a bag like me), 1 package of medium frozen shrimp (I buy raw, deveined, with tail on so I have minimal work), 1/2 cucumber, 1 avocado, dehydrated seaweed, 1 clove garlic, lemon, olive oil, Sriracha (optional), salt + pepper. The only weird ingredient is the dehydrated seaweed, but I was able to find it at Walmart so I guarantee you can find it just about any where. It is slightly odd to work with but is a major factor in the sushi taste. 

WHY THIS WORKS DURING THE WEEK: To be honest, the same exact reasons that my last shrimp recipe detailed. This entire recipe takes up to 20 minutes. All the ingredients, minus the seaweed, are things I have in my pantry. You could also sub other types of fish instead of shrimp if you have those on hand. Salmon would be a delicious substitute. 

LET'S GET COOKING: Prepare white rice per box instructions. Toss shrimp with lemon juice, garlic, salt, pepper, and lemon juice. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add shrimp mixture and cook until no longer translucent. While shrimp are cooking - dice cucumbers, crush seaweed sheets, slice avocado. Assemble and add Sriracha if desired.
