Love poke but worried about giving your kid raw fish? These bowls swap in cooked shrimp, so you get all the flavour without any of the concern.


  • 1 1/2 cups short-grain brown rice

  • 4 tsp soy sauce, divided

  • 1 tbsp honey

  • 1 tbsp unseasoned rice vinegar

  • 1 tbsp canola oil

  • 340-g bag frozen raw peeled shrimp, thawed

  • 1 tbsp finely grated fresh ginger

  • 1 ripe avocado, pitted, peeled and cut in thin wedges

  • 1 cup frozen shelled edamame, thawed

  • 1 mango, pitted, peeled and cubed (about 1 cup)

  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced nori (seaweed), (optional)

  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds, or togarashi (optional)


  • Cook rice according to package directions, omitting salt. Add 1 tsp soy sauce to the water.

  • Whisk remaining 3 tsp soy sauce with honey and rice vinegar in a small bowl. Set dressing aside.

  • Heat a large frying pan over medium-high. Add oil, shrimp and ginger. Stir-fry until shrimp are pink and cooked through, 3 to 4 min. Remove from heat and drizzle with 1 tbsp honey dressing.

  • Remove rice from heat and stir in remaining dressing. Scoop into 4 bowls and top with shrimp, avocado, edamame, and mango. Sprinkle with nori and sesame seeds.
