Crunchy Crab Sushi Bowl

If you are a sushi lover and want to have a delicious recipe at your fingertips any time that craving hits you, then my Crunchy Crab Sushi Bowl is for you! It’s the first on my meal prep series because it has everything you could possibly want! Tender imitation crab is mixed with Yum-Yum sauce and then layered with tons of bright flavors like cucumber, seaweed, avocado, and green onion. Finally, it’s topped with crispy fried onions for an amazing crunch!

I knew that when I started meal prepping, that sushi in some form would have to make the list. It is truly one of my favorite foods and it’s also something that my family likes to eat as well. So, the ingredients that I buy for meal prep can also double as lunches for my kiddos and I consider that a win! It also seems a little fancy to me for meal prep in a world where meal preps are considered boring and tasteless. This recipe is bright, flavorful, and beautiful, which I think makes it even more appealing.

I have been a sushi lover for quite a while now and we have a local restaurant that has some of the best sushi rolls I’ve ever eaten. And that’s saying something because I travel frequently and try lots of different sushi restaurants. But even this local restaurant isn’t very “local” for me. The restaurant is a 45-minute drive for me. So that means that my sushi cravings are only satisfied every now and then. That’s where this recipe comes in! Now, I can have sushi every week. The ingredients are affordable. There is no cooking required. And I can swap out different ingredients to make as many variations as I like!

Be Sure To Pin It For Later!

I love this recipe because it’s perfect for on-the-go lunches. There is no heating required and it taste great at room temperature or chilled. That is super helpful for people that don’t have access to a stove or microwave on their lunch breaks at work. Also, you can change the flavors any way that you would like. This means that you can take the initial recipe and create lots of variations for your meal preps throughout the month. One complaint about meal prep is having to eat the same thing for multiple days in a row. With the Crunch Crab Sushi Bowls, you can swap out things that will alter the flavor for you and keep it interesting.

Tips for your Crunchy Crab Sushi Bowl:

  • Do not add the seaweed or crispy onions until you are ready to eat. If they are exposed to moisture, they get soggy.
  • Make sure to have some tiny containers for your toppings and soy sauce. (To keep them separate)
  • You can substitute the riced cauliflower with sticky sushi rice from the store. Just know that the macros are going to change, and it will have more carbs.
  • You can also omit the rice component all together. I’ve made the sushi bowls without any rice at all, and the flavor is still amazing!
