Spiralized Sushi Bowl with Salmon Sashimi and Ginger Miso Dressing


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
Amen! Add a bit of it to the dressing for that wasabi spicy taste!
Eva says:
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

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!
Lenora Johnson says:
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!
Katie says:
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!
Thank you Katie, this comment made my day!!
Katrina says:
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!
Katrina - so happy you liked the dish! Noted on the honey!

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 :)
Jazz says:
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

🎄 is up and christmas cookies were baked (second year in a row making @ambitiouskitchen’s sugar cookies - MAKE THEM! 👏🏼)⁣

can we get real and talk about holiday decorating and christmas cookie making for a sec? instagram makes you think it should be all “gumdrops and rainbows” but it’s not really that at all. the kids were breaking ornaments. luca spilt an entire jar of sprinkles all over the floor while decorating the cookies and that was after they fought over who would do each step with mama while making them. 😩 ⁣

yes. holiday music was played, but it was not peaceful and at times, it was chaotic and I said to Lu, “is this worth it?! do they even like this?!” ⁣

and then luca, with me in roma’s room after baths, looked up at me getting roma in her jammies and said, “mama, we make more cookies tomorrow, okay mama?” ⁣

and then I thought about my childhood memories and why I started this christmas cookie making the day after thanksgiving tradition in the first place. because I have one very, very vividly happy memory of decorating christmas cookies with my family. and it made me love this time of year and remember that time fondly. and knowing my mom, they were probably slice and bake 😂😂⁣

anyway. it may look “perfect” on instagram and then when you go to do it yourself, it seems like a disaster. but remember... kids just love your undivided attention and that’s exactly what they had tonight. they don’t remember the burnt cookies or the mess or their screaming sibling. they were too busy having a blast eating cookies with their parents. 🤍💚❤️ and that’s perfect.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING 🦃🍂 luca and roma helped mama put together the thanksgiving table this year with their hand turkeys (my favorite part of the table 🥰)! we’re celebrating at home with my parents and while there is other family who can’t be with us this year, we are grateful for our health and the family with us today. 🖤 there is much to be grateful for this year, more than ever. sending love, strength, and gratitude to all of you this year. I’m thankful for this community, more and more every year 🙌🏼 #happythanksgiving ...

there won't be any new recipes on the blog this week, because it's THANKSGIVING WEEK! 🦃 but don't go too far... this VEGAN creamy potato and kale soup is coming to the blog first thing sunday morning! 🥣 🥔 and yes, you can stir that leftover turkey in there, if you so please. 😇⁣

for those signing off early from work, have a lovely thanksgiving week staying safe and well, however you're spending the holiday 💓
