If you've ever had a dynamite roll, you'll love these dynamite bowls. If you haven't had a dynamite roll this is a good introduction to the perfect balance of flavours that's easier to put together than rolling sushi at home! My personal favourite part of these is that they are customizable to each member of the family. If one kid loves mango and the other won't eat a radish no problemo. Fill the bowls with the ingredients that makes your (or your kids) taste buds happy. These Bowls are inspired by the Dynamite Roll from Earl's Restaurant.
- Shrimp (frozen, tempura battered)
- Red Radishes
- Fresh Ginger or Ginger Paste
- Maple Syrup
- Soy Sauce
- Siracha Mayonnaise
- Wasabi -Optional (fun to say, more fun to watch your husband unknowingly eat it)
- Nori Sheets -Optional (Seaweed Sheets)
- Black Sesame Seeds- Optional
Short Cut Ingredients: Canned Mango, Ginger Paste.
There are a few steps but they are all simple.
- Make the Rice - Since this is a bowl and not a roll you don't NEED it to be sushi rice. I think its best with sushi rice though. You will prepare the rice according to package directions and then if you choose to you will season its with rice wine vinegar, salt and sugar.
- Bake the Shrimp - You could make your own tempura batter and be a master chef but why do that when you live in rural Canada and can't find good fresh shrimp anyway? Just buy the frozen pre battered stuff. Ready in under 20 mins 😎
- Prepare your toppings- I like to think about how it will be eaten and slice accordingly. Thinly sliced strips usually works best with bowls. That way you can get a little of everything in each bit!
Here's How I cut each topping:
Mango: Diced Avocado: Thinly Sliced Radish: Thin Strips Nori: Thin Strips Ginger: Thin Strips Cucumber: Thinly Sliced into strips
Frequently Asked Questions
No. Will it taste more similar to the real dynamite rolls if you do? Yes.
Same answer as above. It makes it taste like sweet and sour rice which is good. just try it haha
Yeah I agree. True story the first time I tried Nori was in Japan and it was disgusting. 15 years later and my taste buds still hate it! I put the seaweed in my husbands bowl but the kids and I skip it. Thats what is great about a bowl instead of a roll - 100% customizable.
When you make the roll the tail of the shrimp sticks out the end looking like the fuse in a stick of dynamite. The flavours are also 'dynamite 😋
