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.

  • tuna tenderloins (filets will work too) *sashimi grade

Directions:

  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, put it in the fridge for 20 mins, or until mostly chilled
  3. Using a very sharp knife, cut your tuna filets into large pieces
  4. Dice up your avocados, cucumber, and mango
  5. Mix the together in large bowl: chilled rice, tuna, avocado, cucumber & mango
  6. Add lemon and lime juice to your mixture

  8. If using wasabi powder: in another small bowl, mix a small amount of the powder with water until it creates a paste
  9. Add wasabi in small amounts to your sushi bowl, 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!
