Sushi bowls with forbidden rice, marinated ahi tuna, pickled ginger, avocado, mango, and wasabi mayo are a fun dinner for a sushi night in!
A few weeks ago, I showed you my go-to recipe for Ahi Poke, and I did so with an ulterior motive.
Ahi poke everything.
^That was my ulterior motive.
Let’s dubstep backwards a few notches. As you’ve been able to see from the multitude of seafood recipes I’ve been posting over the last month (oh, I dunno, let’s use the Seafood Paella, Seared Ahi Salad, The Only Grilled Salmon Recipe You’ll Ever Need as examples), my stomach fibers majorly dig the flounder.
I’ll take it raw, seared, semi-raw, rare, pan-fried, baked, broiled, grilled, poached, you.just.name it. Even fried, and that says a lot coming from someone (me) who typically won’t touch most fried food with a 10-foot pole. I basically adore fish above all proteins. Guilty as charged.
Dubstep forward a few notches, and I’m ahi poking the crap out of my meals lately. Bowls, salad, more bowls, more salad…you should see the things I’ve been doing to wonton crisps. Juuuust kidding. Case in point: ahi poke. Super dope. Sushi bowls: the BOMB.com.
I made these ahi poke sushi bowls with the hunch that you could use good bowl of sushi in your life. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the sushi bowl, the concept is the same exact thing as the burrito bowl. Sushi deconstructed, rearranged, un-wrapped, fully-loaded, raw dawg, lock stock and two smokin’ barrels, uncensored, unrated, what are we talking about again? Oh yes, sushi. Of the bowl varietal.
Sushi bowl basics: rice (I used forbidden), avocado, cucumber, raw fish (I used ahi poke), pickled ginger. Extras: Mango, roasted seaweed, wasabi, mayo, sriracha, sesame seeds, teriyaki sauce (or sweet sauce of choice), macadamia nuts (just trust). Arrange your bowl-ables in a large vessel, and enjoy!
Way I see it, you MUST have a funky fresh sauce to go along with your bowl. For this particular recipe, I whipped up a simple wasabi mayo sauce using avocado oil mayo, wasbi paste, and a touch of agave nectar, and it did wonders for tying the bowl together. You can also go with a sweet teriyaki sauce, or a spicy sriracha mayo as well.
If you’re looking to make sushi bowls a part of your dinner regimen, you can always use raw salmon, hamachi, albacore, etc. You don’t need to poke-ify the fish in order for the bowls to turn out great! Just be sure to add a super cool sauce to make it an experience that rivals your favorite sushi joint.
Don’t be silly, un-wrap your sushi. <- just roll with it <-buh dum ching
