Sushi Bowl

Homemade Sushi Bowl with Tuna, Avocado, Mango & Cucumber

This is my all-time favorite, me and my dad came up with the dish and tweaked it a few times while making it over the years! The most important aspect of this dish is to use fresh and great quality, tuna (and/or salmon). See bright red color of the tuna below.

FullSizeRender 2Ingredients:

  • 1-2 lbs Sashimi-Grade Ahi Tuna
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 cucumber (preferably individually wrapped with a few seeds)
  • 1 ripe mango (substitute pineapple if you don’t like mango)
  • 1/2 Red Onion
  • 1/3 cup Green onion / scallion
  • 1/2 cup chopped Fresh Cilantro
  • 1 cup white sushi rice
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1 lime
  • Soy or Ponzu sauce (a few teaspoons)
  • Wasabi paste
  • Sesame seeds (optional)
  • Edamame (cooked & removed from shells) (optional)
  • Sea salt and pepper


  1. Cook 1 cup of sushi rice according to the directions on the bag (don’t lift up the lid before it’s done cooking).
  2. Once the rice is done cooking, add a dash of rice vinegar and mix it up so it doesn’t get hard (can put in the fridge for 10-20 mins, or until mostly chilled).
  3. Dice up your avocado, cucumber, onions, cilantro and mango.
  4. Using a very sharp knife, cut your tuna filets into large pieces
  5. Mix everything together in large bowl including the rice and tuna.
  6. Add lemon and lime juice.
  7. Add soy sauce, sesame seeds, salt and pepper.
  8. Add wasabi in small amounts to your sushi bowl and mix well, tasting as you go to get your desired spiciness; or keep it on the side to be safe.

Now try out those chopsticks and enjoy your homemade sushi!


  • My go-to spot to buy tuna is The Fresh Market.
  • If you can find sashimi grade salmon, you can use both tuna and salmon together.
