Since I started creating sugar-free dried cranberries recently, it had been time to alter up my broccoli dish instruction and add those in. when one or two experiments, this straightforward broccoli cranberry dish with bacon and walnuts has become a daily at our house.

When I was trying to find ways that to use my new sugar-free dried cranberries, i used to be torn regarding what quite cranberry dish recipes to form. Sweet or savory I’m therefore glad I settled on this broccoli dish with bacon. Give it a attempt. It simply may become a replacement favorite at your house, too. And, if you celebrate Christmas, you’ll love adding its red and inexperienced palette to your vacation table!

Making broccoli bacon dish could be a breeze. mix all the ingredients during a giant bowl, whisk the dressing during a tiny bowl, and blend ’em along. That’s it! This makes a good make-ahead or nightlong dish, and also the flavors get even higher if you refrigerate it for a moment. Healthy olivie dish could be a nice nightlong dish still.

Layered Spicy Shrimp Sushi

Layered Spicy Shrimp Sushi

I’m pretty sure Sushi, all types, are here to stay.  It’s not a fad food, we’ve all pretty much incorporated sushi into our dining repertoire.  Most of us no longer hear the word “Sushi” and think yuck raw fish!

sushi

California rolls seem to be the most popular type of sushi along with Nigiri tpes, that’s the one with a slice of raw fish or boiled shrimp pressed into sushi rice.  And many of us still consider sushi a splurge at a sushi restaurant which admittedly can cost a pretty penny.  (We’ve spent about $100 just to take the kids and grandkids out to Genki Sushi.  That’s what happens when you all get carried away grabbing $3 dishes off the conveyor belt!)  But really Sushi is very easy to make at home and doesn’t have to cost you your first born child!

After all what is sushi?  It’s seasoned white rice, some type of seafood and or veggie that can be rolled into a sheet of dried seaweed.  Easy right?  Ok rolled sushi comes out better when rolled with a bamboo mat that one can buy at any asian market for less than $5.  But what about making sushi without a mat or sheets of dried seaweed?  That would be super easy sushi!

sushiWell recently I came across sushi molds while wandering around Daiso, the Japanese version of a dollar store that recently opened not far from my house.  I grabbed all the molds they had, they were just $1.50 (it’s not really a dollar store, it’s more like the $1.50+ store.)  Anyway I got the molds (I gave some to my kids) and proceeded to make these Layered Spicy Shrimp Sushi.  They’re actually “deconstructed” sushi as my grandson tells me.  Best of all they are super easy to make!

Hey don’t worry if you can’t find the molds, you can use an empty can, old school but it works.  Your sushi will be round instead of square, but it will work just fine.  Just clean an empty can and remove both ends so that you end up with a tube.  Place it on a plate and layer your sushi filling into the tube, when done just slip the can off.  Be careful as the can edges will be sharp.

Anyway here’s my recipe.  I make the rice in my rice cooker, which actually has a setting for sushi rice.  But if you don’t have a rice cooker just cook the rice on the stove or however you usually make rice.  My recipe makes a lot of Layered Sushi so if you don’t need as much just cut the recipe in half or in thirds.

Ingredients:

3 Cups uncooked short grain rice, rinsed well

6 Cups Water (if cooking on the stove) if using a rice cooker follow the cooker’s directions

6 Tbs. Rice Vinegar

3 Tbs. Sugar

3 Tsp. Salt

3 Cups mashed avocado

3 Cups Cucumber diced in small cubes

3 Tbs. Lime Juice

1 1/2 Lbs.  Cooked shrimp diced in small cubes

1/3 Cup Mayonnaise

3 Tbs. Sriracha Sauce

Furikaka for garnish

Wasabi Paste for garnish

Sriracha Sauce for garnish

Directions:

Sushi Rice:

Make rice in rice cooker and let cool

If making rice on stove top:

Bring rice and water to boil in large pot.  Reduce heat and cover.  Simmer about 20 minutes or until water has been absorbed and rice is tender.  Let cool.

Mix Rice Vinegar, Sugar, and salt in a small bowl.

Place cooled cooked rice in a large bowl and gently fluff, you don’t want clumps of rice.

Gently fold vinegar mixture into rice.  Set aside.

Green Layer:

Mix together mashed avocado, cucumber, lime juice, and salt to taste.  Set aside.

Shrimp Layer:

Mix together shrimp, mayo, and sriracha sauce.  Set aside.

Assembly:

Scoop about 2 Tbl. of Green Layer into mold.  Smooth top making sure it’s distributed evenly.

Scoop about 2 Tbs. of Shrimp Layer on top of Green Layer.  Smooth top making sure shrimp mixture is evenly distributed.

Scoop about 4 Tbs. Sushi Rice on top of Shrimp Layer.  Smooth top making sure rice is evenly distributed.  Press rice layer down firmly into the other layers so that the layers will hold together.

Gently unmold and slide into serving dish.  If using a can you will have to gently flip your sushi so that the Green layer is on top.

Sprinkle top with Furikake and drizzle with sriracha sauce.  Squirt wasabi paste on plate and serve with soy sauce.

If you have extra sushi rice and shrimp no worries make my version of Nigiri Shrimp sushi by forming rice into rectangular cubes.

Butterfly the cooked shrimp and gently press on top of rice cube.

Sprinkle with Furikake.

Drizzle with sriracha and dot with wasabi and voila!  You’ve got yummy Nigiri Sushi!
