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.
