Rainbow pokébowl with shrimps

Summer has definitely begun! The weather is just amazing. Maybe you recognize it, with this hot summer weather you don’t really want to cook. At least, you prefer not to spend too long in the kitchen as it is already hot enough! We feel you. Therefore, we love to eat light summer dishes that don’t take long to prepare. This dish is the perfect summer dish as it is prepared within 20 minutes (of which you maybe have to work for 10 minutes and wait for another 10), and next to this, it is super fresh and delicious! It is even the perfect dish to take with you at a picnic. That sounds lovely, right? 


Ingredients for the rice:

  • 200 g of sushi rice
  • 20 g of rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp of white sugar 
  • A pinch of salt

Ingredients for 2 portions:

  • 150 g shrimps – or any other kind of fish you like
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 1/2 avocado 
  • 1/2 mango 
  • 1 small carrot
  • 1 spring onion
  • 2 tbsp of sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil 
  • 1 tsp of sesame oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tsp of chili flakes


Cook the rice according to the packaging of the product. After cooking, let it cool down a bit. Mix the vinegar, sugar and salt together and pour it over the rice. Now mix this well, preferably with a wooden spoon. Set the rice aside. 

Heat the olive oil in a pan on high heat. Peel the garlic and crush them with a knife (you do this by pressing the surface of the knife on the garlic and you kind of mash them a bit. In this way it releases all the juices). Add the garlic, chilli and 1 tbsp of sesame seeds in the pan. Cook this for about 1 minute. Now, add the shrimps and cook this for about 5 minutes, while stirring frequently. When done, set aside, add the sesame oil and stir well. 

In the meantime, you can wash all the vegetables. Cut it how you like it. I cut everything how I would cut it for sushi, thin slices in the length. 

Now you can start plating! Just add all the ingredients on a plate and plate it how you like it. Sprinkle the leftover sesame seeds on top and you’re ready to eat! 🙂 

Optional: you can add any kind of vegetables that you like! Also, if you don’t like shrimps then try it with salmon, tuna or even tofu!
