I knew it had to be epic, because that’s what 2015’s going to be for me: epic.

I mean, I’ve got a cookbook coming out, I’m getting married to the love of my life, and I have a few other tricks up my sleeves.

So, yea, epic: like this sushi bowl.

Spiralized Sushi Bowl with Salmon Sashimi and Ginger Miso Dressing

I’m writing this post on December 22, 2014, so I can’t tell you how my New Year’s was. I can tell you, however, that it was in the Dominican Republic, spent with Lu’s family (his father was from the Dominican.)

I’ve been meaning to make a spiralized sushi bowl for a while, because a) everybody loves sushi and b) sushi has so many spiralizable elements.

What better occasion to finally make this than for 2015’s first recipe?

Originally, I had wanted to use kani as the main protein and have this titled as a “spiralized california sushi bowl.” Unfortunately, I was scrambling to stock up all of my posts before I left for Christmas/New Year’s and the grocery store I was at didn’t have kani and I didn’t have the time to drive somewhere else, so: salmon sashimi.

Salmon sashimi works perfectly here and the ginger-miso dressing brings out the freshness in the salmon. However, if you don’t like salmon or don’t have access to the freshest, substitute in anything: kani (ha!), shrimp, tofu, edamame beans, or just leave it out and make it 100% vegetarian and simple.

Once you add the ginger-miso dressing and toss together as you eat, the dish transforms – so many flavors, textures and colors. The avocado is velvety, the carrots and crunchy and sweet and the daikon rice provides the extra oomph this dish needs to be considered a true “sushi bowl.”

The seaweed is nice and salty. I actually really love adding seaweed to soups and other dishes for extra umami. You know, that “pleasant savory taste” that’s indescribable.

Anyway, this recipe, overall, is the quintessential segue into an unbelievable year for Inspiralized. It shows the creativity and versatility of the spiralizer and it demonstrates perfectly how spiralizing can transform your favorite traditionally unhealthy dishes into healthy versions – sometimes with even more flavor!

Okay, I’m done. I’m probably en route home from the Dominican Republic right now, sad to be leaving the warmth, but excited to start this New Year!

What are your favorite ways to be creative with the spiralizer?

  • This looks really delicious, but I'm gonna have to add some wasabi in there somewhere. I can't have sushi without wasabi - lol
  • This looks so good I can't wait to make it! What kind of miso paste do you use? Thanks and congratulations on all your accomplishments. I will definately buy your cookbook when it comes out and I'm ordering my spiralizer today and can't wait to make your recipes for myself and my family. This one I think I'll make for my best friend since we haven't seen each other in awhile and I always like to cook for her or not cook in this case lol. So happy I came across your site. Happy New Year!
    • Thank you for the kind words, Eva! I use an organic miso paste by marukome! Here's the link: http://www.marukomeusa.com/products/miso-paste/organic-miso-reduced-sodium-375.html
      • Thank You!

  • This definitely looks amazing and it sounds like your new year is truly going to be an epic experience. I'm SO exited for you about your engagement and wedding! And of course, you're new cookbook. Please let me know how I can help! You know I'd love to help you! Blessings and congratulations, Kelly
  • Great recipe! Tried it with tofu and it was delicious. The dressing is wonderful and will be great on salads, too. Congrats on the big year ahead!
  • Congrats on your engagement and amazing new year! One question, the instructions above mention crab, I assume that's a whoops since I don't see it in the pictures or your description. Keep up the great work!! Thanks,
    • Oops! Yes, it's a whoops - thanks for catching that and thanks for all the kind words! Happy New Year!
  • WHY is everything you make so drool-worthy?! This looks amazing, and cant wait to try all of your new recipes to come this year! Thanks for being a great (healthy!) inspiration and whipping up amazing things!
  • Oh yum and yum again. I just made this and whilst not quite as pretty looking as yours, it was EVEN BETTER than it looks in taste. I didn't use quite as much honey, but the fresh ginger in the dressing made the whole thing so fresh. My first inspiralized recipe and it was pure genius. Thank you!
  • It is an awesome recipe. My salivary glands are working overtime just by reading this. It is EPIC, just as your year is going to be and mine too!!
  • Looks great. If you have the 4 blade unit, which is blade C ? Thanks. Shelli
  • Hi There. I LOVE your site. You are sooooo creative. The recipe for turnip 'rice' stuffed acorn squash is amazing. Here is my question.... I have an awesome recipi for linguini with white clam sauce. I tried it with zuccini noodles, but it got too watery. Any other ideas for the pasta that would go with clam sauce?
    • Thanks so much for your kind words! Turnips would work really well, or daikon noodles! I actually have a white clam sauce recipe in my cookbook :)
  • I just had this for lunch! YUM! Thank you so much for sharing your ideas! I've shrunk one size since I started cooking your recipes (and creating my own with my spiralizer). :)
  • My cooking bucket list includes creating a dish that evokes the the fragrance, aesthetics, and experience of wading through a tide pool. Your dish comes closer to that, than I have ever have. Now I know why. I have been striving for the visual qualities and ingredients, making a noodle bowl that looked like a tide pool with tide pool creatures. That's not so bad, but what I missed was the fresh experience of wading through a tide pool. Your dish has that quality I'm looking forward to eating it
