Sushi Roll Rice Salad

Sushi Roll Rice Salad

This is a great pre-workout meal that is easy to prepare. A salad version of a deconstructed sushi roll, this dish is quickly assembled with leftover brown rice and highlighted with Japanese-inspired textures and flavours. Carbohydrate-rich brown rice is the best energy fuel, especially when combined with a protein such as the cooked shrimp in this recipe.

What You’ll Need:


2 tbsp pickling liquid from jarred pickled ginger 30 mL
2 tbsp seasoned rice vinegar 30 mL
1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds 15 mL
1 cup cooked, Kokuho Rose® white or brown rice 250 mL
1/2 lb cooked shrimp or sliced crab (Pollock) or salmon or tuna 250 g
1 avocado, peeled and sliced 1
16 cucumber slices 16
1/4 cup wasabi peas 50 mL
1/4 cup crumbed or sliced nori (roasted seaweed) 50 mL


In a small bowl, whisk together ginger pickling liquid, vinegar and sesame seeds. Set aside.

In two small bowls, divide rice. Arrange seafood or fish, avocado and cucumber slices decoratively over rice. Drizzle dressing over each. Top with wasabi peas and nori.

Makes 2 servings.
