My New Love

28 May

I am completely obsessed with my most recent meal discovery The California Sushi Roll in a bowl! I have my dear hubbies picky palette to thank for it!

We have been on a roll this week with Asian influenced meals. I usually try and use up leftovers the next day with lunch or dinner if I can. We had a lot of rice noodle shrimp soup leftover from the other day so I decided to make Orange Chicken and rice as the main entree.

For some reason my hubby is not a fan of Orange Chicken and didn’t want the leftover soup either. I decided I should find another item to add to the menu for dinner and started searching for imitation crab recipes. I was hoping to find a simple crab salad I might even be able to send with him to work. As soon as I saw the title for the recipe California Roll in a Bowl I knew I had to make it!

The ingredients for the salad are pretty straight forward and simple. Lettuce, carrots, crab, avocado, cucumbers and rice. I used a squeeze tube of ginger and wasabi to mix in the soy sauce and rice vinegar dressing. I didn’t know how to toast seaweed and we aren’t super excited about sesame seeds so we didn’t worry about those parts.

I love eating sushi rolls but I hate making them due to all the prep involved before you get a roll done so I don’t make them very often. I may try adding some tempura shrimp and mirin next time to see if it tastes like a crunchy shrimp roll as well as a little extra wasabi to turn up the heat a bit. What type of sushi bowl would you like?
