We love sushi in your house...especially the California Roll. It is the sauce that makes it I tell ya!

Unfortunately, my son decided that he no longer liked the Nori wraps in the sushi. So our plans to create deconstructed sushi bowls began.

Now our bowls are not much different that any other recipe out there, but as usual they are always evolving in flavor and style. After all everything we cook or make at home gets Macklinized! 

So here is the Macklin version of Sushi Bowls, of course customized to how we eat. Feel free to customize to your meal needs.



¼ c of mayo

3-4 tsp sriracha sauce


4 cups cauliflower rice

2 tbsp seasoned rice vinegar

¼ cup Coconut aminos

⅛ cup Fish Sauce (optional)


1 large avocado, scooped out and sliced, mashed, or cubed

12 oz of shrimp, fish, or crab (skip the imitation crab if you are a low carb eater)

1 cucumber, sliced

1 tbsp toasted black sesame seeds

2 green scallions, chopped

1 carrot cut into strips, ribbons, or shredded


  1. Sauce: mix mayo and sriracha sauce until mixed thoroughly together. Set aside to allow it to flavorize.

  2. Rice: Steam cauliflower rice until tender. Then add in rice vinegar, coconut aminos, and fish sauce to rice. Taste and add more to reach the desired flavor profile. 

  3. Meat: cook according based on the meat of your choosing

  4. Toppings: Chop up cucumber, green scallions, and avocado.

  5. Divide rice into 4 serving bowls, add 3 oz of meat, and top our choice of toppings from above or get creative and add your own flare to your dish. However that sauce...you have got to add that, I promise it makes the dish!

If you like seeing how food is made, my son and I walk you through the steps:

The best part for me is this recipe makes 4 servings. So in a house of three, there is always a bowl left over for my lunch the next day. 

If you decide to add Nori to your dish, just make sure to add it to the bowl before eating. Otherwise it gets too soft when sitting in the bowl over time.

What will you be adding to your Sushi Bowl tonight?
