Makes: 2 stacks

Ingredients

  • 30 shrimp
  • 1 in sheet nori 
  • Wonton or tortilla strips
  • Sesame seeds to garnish

Bang Bang sauce

  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 2 tsp Sriracha
  • 2 tsp sweet chili sauce
  • 1/4 tsp salt
Quick guacamole
  • 1 avocado mashed
  • 1-2 tsp lime juice
  • 1 clove small garlic minced
  • 1/2 tsp herbamare or sea salt
Mango salsa
  • 1/2 mango diced
  • 1/4 cup red pepper diced
  • 1/4 cup red onion diced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro chopped
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1/4 tsp to 1/2salt
Sushi rice
  • 1/2 cup dry sticky rice
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp salt

  1. In a rice cooker or in a small saucepan, cook sticky rice for the time accorded on package directions (usually 15-20 min).
  2. Meanwhile, mix together ingredients for guacamole (or just use mashed avocado) and mix together mango salsa, along with bang bang sauce.
  3. In a 1 or 2 cup measuring cup (I used a 2 cup measuring cup and it was the perfect size for dinner), spoon in mango salsa until a there is a thin layer, then spread half of the avocado mixture overtop. Layer with shrimp, then strips of nori, then sticky rice.
  4. Press down hard, then trace with a knife all the way around the measuring cup to loosen mixture. Dump onto a plate, careful to make sure mixture remains in tact.
  5. Top mango salsa with crumbled wonton or tortilla strips, then drizzle bang bang sauce overtop using a plastic bag with a tiny hole cut out in a corner. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve with fresh limes and soy sauce.
