Craving some sushi? Try these budget-friendly, easy and delicious deconstructed shrimp sushi bowls with cauliflower rice!
These shrimp sushi bowls with cauliflower rice are one of my favorite dinners. This dish tastes amazing and gives all the flavors of sushi. However, it’s so quick and easy to make! I chop up and prep my veggies before cooking, then just cook some shrimp and cauliflower rice in a skillet with oil. Then I just arrange my bowls and dinner is on the table.
If you’re vegetarian try tofu instead of shrimp, or just add more veggies! I think these would also be amazing with salmon or crab meat. You can really get creative with this recipe to cater to your cravings.
I provide a homemade spicy mayo recipe in the recipe. However, Trader Joe’s just launched a new sauce. It’s called “dynamite” sauce and it’s inspired by sushi! This is a great store bought option!
I hope you enjoy this recipe!Print

Yummm ! how do you make your cauliflower rice? Do you chop on your own or use a food processor ?
Most grocery stores sell it pre-riced in bags in the produce section! I usually buy that to save some time. Then I just add it to a skillet over medium heat with a tiny bit of oil, salt, & pepper. It takes about five minutes to cook, just make sure to stir it occasionally. A food processor also works!
So delicious!! And super easy!!👍
