The goal here was to enjoy sushi at home with the least amount of effort as possible…”lazy sushi” if you will 😉 Shrimp Tempura Sushi Bowls have everything in a regular roll, just as delicious but super simple.
A very good friend sent me a picture of something similar she had on vacation. Everyone should get them a food pic buddy 🙂
Such a great idea having sushi in a bowl, I just had to try it for myself.
All of the ingredients I already had except the avocado, cucumber, and shrimp. We cook with Asian flavors so often, we use the basic ingredients for the toppings a lot.
Let’s just talk about this SeaPak Frozen Shrimp for a moment…OH…MY…WORD it’s SO flipping good!
Much easier than frying your own tempura shrimp and they get so crisp and golden brown in the oven or air fryer.
Eight pieces come in a package, so get either one or two packages depending on how many pieces of shrimp you want in each bowl.
How to Make Shrimp Tempura Sushi Bowls
Start by making the shrimp and the rice.
I cooked my shrimp in the air fryer at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Or you can follow the oven directions on the package.
For the rice, either boil Jasmine rice according to package directions, or microwave a few of the Uncle Ben’s Jasmine rice pouches.
They take only 90 seconds for each pouch and it goes with the theme of this dish…which is simple, easy, and lazy 😉
While the shrimp and rice are cooking, set out the other ingredients for the bowls.
For the cucumber, I drained some of the water by placing them on paper towels.
Your basic shrimp tempura roll has rice, shrimp, avocado, and cucumber.
The flavor packed part comes with the toppings for the roll, typically eel sauce, spicy mayo, and sesame seeds.
Once the shrimp are cooked, let them cool slightly.
And divide 4 to 6 cups of rice between 4 bowls.
Next up is the shrimp, cucumber, and avocado.
It would be pretty boring if eaten like this, the toppings are the most fun part of making your bowl perfect for you.
I set out soy sauce, spicy mayo, soy glaze, pickled ginger, wasabi, and sesame seeds.
You can find all of these ingredients in the Asian section of the grocery store.
My daughter also suggested yum yum sauce or teriyaki sauce would be good to try next time.
Since I used one package of the shrimp, each of our four bowls had two pieces of shrimp.
If you want more shrimp, just buy two boxes and each bowl can have four.
Shrimp Tempura Sushi Bowls get mixed up so each bite has maximum yumminess!
