Spicy Shrimp Sushi Stack

Spicy shrimp sushi stack is way easier to make than sushi rolls. So much so, that my daughter came to help in the kitchen. That doesn’t happen often. Oh, and let me tell you the about the two different sauces. A typical sriracha sauce PLUS a wasabi sauce. The two sauces together kick this simple shrimp sushi up another level.

The hardest part of this recipe is chopping the ingredients and mixing the sauces. Just start layering in your vessel of choice. A one cup metal measuring cup works best for us. First, lay the cucumbers flat sides down.

Top with a layer of the sushi rice, lay a plate on top of the measuring cup and flip them over together.  Tap lightly and you will see the rice starting to slide out of the cup.

Slowly lift the cup off of the stack, drizzle the sauces over the top, sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve immediately.

    I love this idea to stack instead of roll! Sometimes it’s hard to find good nori where I’m at. Pinning for later. I found you at What’s Cookin Wednesday.
