Spicy Shrimp Poke Bowl

You know, I love poke but *damn* it’s pricy! And not gonna lie…I do get nervous about where people are sourcing their fish from these days. So, I decided let’s make poke at home but with the good ol’ shrimp. For this bowl, we cook our shrimp and then toss it in a delicious spicy mayo. It’s then paired with edamame, cucumber, mango, avocado, scallions and of course, some sushi rice. I love this for meal prep — prep all the ingredients ahead of time and assemble. The shrimp will keep for up to 2 days in the fridge. It takes a a few minutes to cook the shrimp, so I recommend prepping everything else then just making that fresh right before serving, but to each his own! Enjoy!
