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 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.
Spicy Shrimp Sushi Stack
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.
Spread a layer of the mashed avocado.
Layer the shrimp flat sides down.
How to cook shrimp if using raw: Bring 3 quarts of water to a boil. Add 1 pound shrimp (with or without shells) and 1 teaspoon salt to the water. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 1 to 2 minutes or until the shrimp turns pink. Watch closely, you don’t want to overcook them.
Immediately remove the shrimp to an ice bath to stop the cooking. Drain on paper towels.
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 about 1 teaspoon of soy sauce over the top of the sushi, then drizzle the wasabi sauce and the sriracha sauce over the top of the sushi. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds.
Serve immediately and enjoy!
This spicy shrimp sushi stack is going to be a regular monthly (maybe weekly) meal in our house. Just writing this post I’m craving them again!
