Sushi Bowl with Smoked Salmon, Avocado and Edamame

Sushi Bowl with Smoked Salmon, Avocado and Edamame

Sushi bowl with smoked salmon, avocado, cucumbers, edamame and rice makes for the perfect Japanese themed meal that is ready in under 30 minutes. All the flavors of a sushi roll but none of the fuss. Gluten Free and Dairy Free too.Sushi bowl recipes are my life. If you know me you know I am obsessed with sushi and always proclaim my favorite country (out of the 56 I’ve been to) as Japan. If you ask me Japanese food is the best and anything related to sushi is always at the top of my list. If I had to pick one cuisine to eat the rest of my life it would be Japanese.

While I love ordering sushi rolls when I’m out, I’m not super keen on making them at home.

I have tried, and it’s always been somewhat successful but they’re never quite as graceful and dignified as the professional sushi rolls at the restaurants. You know what I mean? Somehow with a sushi roll I can never get it to slice cleanly and properly. My sushi rolls never look too plump, instead a bit mashed in. First world problems, I know.

So instead of a sushi roll, I’ve create a sushi bowl. Problem meet solution.

Try saying sushi roll and sushi bowl several times quickly without getting tongue tied. Kind of fun right?

How what to put in my sushi bowl?

I opted for these toppings

smoked salmon rolled into roses (so easy to work with – no cooked required)

cucumbers, cut into matchsticks

edamame, quickly boiled and shelled

avocado, thinly sliced

toasted sesame seeds

nori sheets, cut up

Smoked salmon and rice make for an awesome combo and there is no need to spend time cooking the fish! A major bonus for a quick low fuss recipe.

All my favorite flavors are Japanese inspired; think tamari, wasabi and ginger. So good. That pickled ginger on the sushi plate at the Japanese restaurants is gone, before you even had a chance to crack apart your chopsticks. Tell me I’m not the only one?

I simply assumed you just didn’t want any if you were taking so long. Wasabi has taken a few years to grow on me.

There was a time when I scrunched up my face as I saw my parents add it onto their sushi rolls, but now I’ve joined in, generously adding a dash every time I can.

Do you spread it on top of the sushi or mix it into the soy sauce? What’s your method?

Think of this recipe as a deconstructed sushi roll. I got the idea for these smoked salmon and avocado sushi bowls after making my low carb sushi. You still get all of those delicious Japanese flavors but without all the required patience and coordination.

Cook up some rice and mix it up with the tamari, sesame oil and rice vinegar dressing. Have you smelled sesame oil before? It’s one of the best scents out there. Open up your bottle and breath in that toasty goodness.

Now if I had access to fresh sushi grade salmon I would have gladly used it, but I didn’t so I used smoked salmon instead — not a bad alternative if you ask me.

The avocados and cucumbers give the smoked salmon and rice bowl a nice fresh taste and you can’t skimp on the nori seaweed sheets.

Now there are seaweed sheets and seaweed snacks. I love both but am currently obsessed with the snacks. Have you tried these before? They come in nice little single serving packages that you can munch on like chips. You can find them at Whole Food’s and Trader Joe’s and maybe even the regular grocery stores and they’re addictive and so good. Way healthier than chips too!

If you’ve got some pickled ginger and fresh wasabi, serve those on the side.

What you’ve got here is a delicious avocado and Japanese smoked salmon rice sushi bowl that comes together in no time and is both gluten-free and dairy-free.

If you’re trying to go the low-carb route make this rice free low carb sushi recipe or just use cauliflower rice in this sushi bowl instead.
