Spicy Shrimp, Mango and Avocado Sushi Bowl – packed with flavor, this bowl of goodness is a quick and easy weeknight meal!
Who doesn’t love a good sushi bowl…. They are always good, aren’t they? I am a HUGE fan of all things sushi (I swear I could eat it every day) so I was excited to try this new combination. I was inspired by someone on Instagram eating mango sushi rice and….. it just snowballed. I don’t even think I saw a picture of it, they just mentioned it in passing. Suddenly all I wanted was mango + avocado + sushi rice + soy sauce. I have no idea why. Then shrimp got thrown into the mix and cilantro…. and here we are. This wonderful bowl of absolute deliciousness that is SO EASY to make. Like, 30 minutes and your are done (unless your rice takes longer…).
I mean, the only things you have to cook are the shrimp and the rice! Everything else is just raw.
And you can easily leave out the spicy garlic-chili sauce if you aren’t feeling the spice or leave the shrimp out all together if you are vegetarian/vegan.
This is a perfect go-to meal for summer and right in my wheelhouse – you guys know I am a sucker for rice bowls….they are kind of my go-to. Here a couple of my favorites in case that is something you are into too (in which case, we should be friends….)
- Cilantro-Fried Rice Bowl + Avocado and Poached Egg
- Braised Boy Choy, Leek and Spinach Rice Bowl with Poached Egg

And an (early) Happy Mother’s Day to everyone out there!!! Celebrate each other, celebrate yourself :-).
