I love this easy and fresh shrimp sushi bowl! This bowl comes together for a fast fresh meal anytime and the flavors are incredible. With juicy shrimp, crunchy cucumber, creamy avocado, and spicy sriracha mayonnaise, you will want to make this bowl again and again.
I like to meal prep all the ingredients in separate bowls so they stay fresh and have it a few times during that week. Also, I use frozen shrimp because I can easily defrost it when I am ready to assemble my bowl.

What Is A Sushi Bowl?
A sushi bowl is deconstructed sushi in bowl form. There is no need to assemble sushi rolls for this recipe. Just add all of the ingredients to a bowl.
What Is Sushi Bowl Made Of?
We have lightened up this bowl by using a mix of brown rice and riced cauliflower instead of sushi rice. Also, this healthy sushi bowl is packed with shrimp, cucumber, cilantro, green onions, edamame, avocado, and spicy mayonnaise. It tastes like a California roll but with shrimp instead of crab.
How To Make Shrimp Sushi Bowls
First, chop the cucumber, roughly chop the cilantro, slice the green onions, and cut the avocado into bite-sized pieces.
Then, cook the brown rice and cauliflower rice using your favorite method.
After that, add the seasoned rice vinegar and salt to the rice and mix.
Next, defrost the cooked frozen shrimp. Then, mix the sriracha and light mayonnaise.
When you are ready to assemble, divide everything into two bowls. Add the rice, cooked shrimp, cucumber, cilantro, green onions, avocado, and edamame.
After that, pour the low-sodium soy sauce or tamari on top along with the spicy mayonnaise, and enjoy!
Tips For Making Sushi Bowls
Make Sushi Bowls Ahead Of Time
You can easily meal prep all of the ingredients for this recipe at one time. Then, store the leftovers in airtight containers in the refrigerator so they are ready to go. This makes it super easy and quick to assemble this bowl.
How To Cook Rice
You can cook or make your brown rice or cauliflower however you like to do it. For fast results, we used frozen cooked brown rice frozen and frozen riced cauliflower from Trader Joe’s. To do this, boil the rice for 2-3 minutes in a saucepan. Then, rinse the rice with cold water in a strainer. From there, let the rice sit and drain the water. After that, add the salt and seasoned rice vinegar to the rice and mix.
Season The Rice
Once the brown rice and riced cauliflower are cooked and drained, season the rice with seasoned rice vinegar and a pinch of salt. Also, you can mix the soy sauce or tamari with the rice or pour it on top of the bowl once assembled.
Make Sushi Bowls Gluten-Free
To make these shrimp sushi bowls gluten-free, use tamari instead of soy sauce.
Shrimp Sushi Bowl Toppings
This shrimp bowl is delicious on its own or with additional toppings. We have listed some of our favorites below.
- Add sliced nori on top. We get roasted seaweed from Trader Joe’s. This makes it easy to use one small bag and slice the seaweed.
- Add sesame seeds on top for flavor.
- Picked ginger is a great addition.
- Add Bachan’s Japanese Barbecue Sauce. We are obsessed with this if you have not tried it, definitely give it a try. It adds incredible flavor to any dish and it can even be used as a marinade. This is a must-try!
Shrimp Bowl Variations
Fresh crab or imitation crab will work well in this recipe if you would like to use crab instead of shrimp. This will make it a deconstructed California roll bowl!
Use Frozen Shrimp
You can use fresh or frozen shrimp in this recipe. We used frozen shrimp because we always have it on hand and it is easy to make this recipe whenever the craving hits. Just make sure to use cooked frozen shrimp or cook fresh shrimp before enjoying.
What Rice To Use
We used a combination of riced cauliflower and brown rice for these sushi bowls. You can use all riced cauliflower or all brown rice. We like to use both as a mix. Also, quinoa mixed with brown rice or riced cauliflower will work.
