Ingredients for California Roll Sushi Bowls
- 1 cup of sushi rice
- 1 1/4 cups of water
- 1/4 cup of rice vinegar
- 2 tablespoons of sugar
- 1 tablespoon of salt
- 4 ounces of crab meat
- 1 avocado
- 1 cucumber
- 4 tablespoons of mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon of Sriracha
- 1 tablespoon of soy sauce
Step 1: Cook the Rice
Begin by cooking one cup of sushi rice according to package instructions. Once the rice is cooked and still warm, combine 1/4 cup of rice vinegar, 2 tablespoons of sugar, and 1 tablespoon of salt in a small saucepan. Heat over low heat until the sugar has dissolved. Add the vinegar mixture to the rice and stir to combine.
Step 2: Prepare the Crab Meat
If you’re using fresh crab meat that still has its shell, begin by steaming the crab for about 5 minutes. Once it’s cooked, remove the meat from the shell and chop it into small pieces. If you’re using pre-cooked crab meat, simply chop it into small pieces.
Step 3: Prepare the Vegetables
Cut the avocado into small chunks, and peel and slice the cucumber. Set aside.
Step 4: Make the Spicy Mayo
In a small bowl, whisk together 4 tablespoons of mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon of Sriracha, and 1 tablespoon of soy sauce. Set aside.
Step 5: Assemble the Bowls
Divide the cooked rice between four bowls. Top each bowl with the chopped crab meat, sliced avocado, and sliced cucumber. Drizzle the spicy mayo over each bowl, and serve immediately.
