California Roll in a Bowl

Submitted by: STEPFANIER
California Roll in a Bowl

Introduction

Delicious and easy, this salad combines all of my favorite sushi ingredients in one bowl! And, because it's based on a California roll, it uses fully cooked seafood.

Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    Salad:
    1 cup brown rice, cooked (1/2 c dry)
    1 head butter or romaine lettuce, chopped
    8 oz. imitation crab meat or cooked shrimp, chopped
    1 English (seedless) cucumber, thinly sliced (and peeled if not organic)
    1 ripe avocado, diced
    1 carrot, grated
    3 T pickled ginger, chopped (available in the Asian section of most supermarkets)

    Dressing:
    3 T rice wine vinegar
    1 T light soy sauce
    Wasabi powder to taste (start with 1/2 t)

    Garnishes:
    1 T sesame seeds
    1 large sheet nori (seaweed), toasted and broken into small pieces


Tips

This is a great way to introduce friends and family to the taste of sushi. Add slivered sushi ginger, bits of nori (seaweed), and sesame seeds to make it even more authentic.

    I make a similar salad with quinoa instead of brown rice and baked salmon instead of crab. It's really fantasic - tasty, easy to prepare, and a great way to use leftover salmon. - 11/21/08

    Absolutely wonderful! Perfect for an Orthodox Christian fasting day menu and perfect to fix for guests during a Lenten period! (I used one can of shrimp, drained and one can of lump crab, drained.) - 7/15/09

    Exactly like California rolls - very fresh! I used 3 sheets of nori toasted over the stove, and I also toasted the sesame seeds for a nuttier flavor. You could also double up on the dressing & crab for a stronger taste. Best if eaten immediately, or it gets rather soggy. - 11/25/08

    I didn't see a mention of the rice in instructions. Does the rice get layered on the lettuce before the rest of the ingredients? - 11/17/08

    I made this last night and loved it - a great healthy treat. I recommend toasting the sesame seeds (you can do this easily by sprinkling them on a sheet of foil and popping it in your toaster oven) for great nutty flavor. Will try again later with scallops in place of shrimp. - 11/19/08
