Our recipe for Shrimp Sushi Jars is fantastically easy to put together and every bite as delicious, as the constructed sushi rolls from a fine dining, a Japanese restaurant.
The sushi aka sticky rice is the only element that must be cooked. Although the recipe calls for packaged seaweed salad, if you’re feeling culinarily creative, make your own. Recipes are plentiful on the Internet or in Asian cookbooks.
You may have challenges in locating packaged seaweed salad. Explore local Asian markets, or there is a Costco near you, they carry it. (Shhh! Don’t tell, but we overheard that even Japanese restaurants frequent Costco for seaweed!)
Don’t give up if you absolutely can’t locate seaweed salad, substitute wakame, meaning ‘sesame seaweed’. If you’re a newbie to Asian cooking, you may not be familiar with Nori, which is edible, dried sheets of seaweed.
Not only are jar meals simple to make, they can be customized to fit your personal taste. For example, Dynamite Shrimp Sushi Jars practically beg for avocado, which is one of my favorites.
When all that’s left of your lunch is a delicious memory, don’t fret. There are a gazillion combinations of jar lunches, with your name on them.
Mason jar mania is spreading like gourmet mustard!
