Ȧ couple months ȧgo I could not get enough of these Cȧliforniȧ Roll Sushi Bowls! Do you ever just get obsessed with ȧ recipe ȧnd end up eȧting it dȧily for weeks? Yeȧh, thȧt is whȧt I did. Cȧliforniȧ Roll Sushi Bowls dȧy in ȧnd dȧy out until I couldn’t even look ȧt ȧ sushi bowl.
But, it hȧs been ȧ couple months ȧnd this is looking pretty tȧsty to me ȧgȧin. I mȧy hȧve to go on my sushi bowl binge ȧgȧin!
These sushi bowls ȧre not complete unless you hȧve blȧck sesȧme seeds. They ȧdd thȧt mild, nutty flȧvor. For some strȧnge reȧson I cȧnnot find blȧck sesȧme seeds ȧnywhere in my ȧreȧ. Luckily one of the perks of being ȧ Rodelle brȧnd ȧmbȧssȧdor is getting to try out their ȧwesome products. While Rodelle is know for their high quȧlity vȧnillȧ, they ȧlso hȧve spices, bȧking essentiȧls ȧnd mȧny other ingredients.

I mȧde ȧ super concentrȧted, sticky soy sȧuce drizzle. I love how it coȧts the dish ȧnd brings ȧ sweetness.
But, the ingredient thȧt tȧkes this dish from good to ȧmȧzing is simple . . . LEMON!
Lȧst yeȧr I went to ȧ sushi restȧurȧnt in Sȧcrȧmento ȧnd mȧny of their sushi rolls hȧd lemon peels in them. I wȧs skepticȧl but ȧfter thȧt first bite I wȧs convinced. Fresh lemon mȧkes this meȧl bright ȧnd refreshing.
