Scattered Sushi Rice Bowl

This is less of a recipe, and more of a guide to assembling a sushi bowl. I have given the ingredients I prefer, but feel free to mix it up and use whatever you have on hand in the garden, fridge or freezer.

I have provided ingredients for one rice bowl. Scale these up according to the number of mouths you wish to feed.

  • 1 cup cooked brown rice^
  • Sesame Miso Dressing
  • 2 small fish fillets pan fried*
  • 1/2 small cucumber sliced
  • 1/2 carrot shredded
  • 1 small avocado sliced, or 1/2 large
  • 1/4 sheet toasted nori shredded
  • Toasted sesame seeds pickled ginger and fermented pickles to serve.


  • Mix 1 Tablespoon of the dressing through the brown rice and place in the bottom of your serving bowl.
  • Arrange the fish and vegetables over the top of the rice.
  • Scatter the shredded nori and sesame seeds over the top of the dish.
  • Drizzle with extra Sesame Miso Dressing immediately prior to serving.
  • Serve with pickled ginger and fermented pickles.


^Brown rice freezes very well, so cook extra and freeze in appropriate serving sizes so you can pull this together quite quickly.
*I marinated my fish for 2 hours in 2 Tablespoons of tamari and 1 teaspoon of toasted sesame oil. I then pan fried it just prior to serving.
