I am having a moment with salads and bowls right now. The concept is amazing–throw a bunch of stuff that you love into a bowl with a yummy sauce of some sort and CHOW DOWN! Like this Chopped Thai Salad with Spicy Peanut Dressing.…I could bathe in that dressing! The peanut dressing is good on pretty much ANYTHING! Oh! And you cannot go through life as a bowl-lover and not try the Viral TikTok Salmon and Rice Bowl–it’s LEGIT!!! Need some shrimp comfort food?! You can’t miss my super easy shrimp scampi recipe!
Speaking of bathing in sauce….I created these shrimp bowls just to have an excuse to (heavily) drizzle on the sriracha mayo sauce….it’s sooooo addicting!!!

You’ll need the following ingredients to make these delicious Homemade Poke Bowls with Shrimp:
For the Poke Bowls:
For the spicy mayonnaise:
Shrimp: You can really use ANY kind of shrimp for this bowl. However, I prefer wild caught 50-60 count shrimp. The smaller shrimp cook up so quickly, which is what I always go for on busy weeknights!
Cabbage: I love using purple cabbage because it’s so darn pretty, but to make this even quicker, just use prepackaged slaw mix ((I am all about less chopping))!
Rice: ANY rice works here. Jasmine, brown, quick cooking, instant, cauliflower, you name it. You can use sushi rice as well for that more authentic “poke bowl” vibe 🙂 I just prefer whatever I happen to have on hand, which is usually Jasmine.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
No. Raw shrimp is not safe to eat. The vast majority of shrimp we get here in the United States is farm-raised in other countries and can carry several types of harmful bacteria when uncooked. Shrimp should be cooked to an internal temperature of 145.
“Poke” simply means “chunks” or “slice.” A typical Hawaiian poke bowl typically includes “chunks” of super fresh, sushi grade raw fish (usually tuna) tossed in a soy-sesame dressing, served over rice. In this case, our “poke” or “chunks” will be shrimp 🙂
Yes, absolutely! These bowls area great option for meal preps as the veggies/shrimp and rice keep well in the fridge for about 3 days. Just keep the avocado and sauce separate and top your bowls with both when you are ready to eat!
This poke bowl is great for meal preps! Store assembled bowls (without sauce or avocado) in air tight containers or meal prep containers in the fridge for up to 3 days. Toss in sauce and avocado when you’re ready to eat.
The sauce for this poke bowl is simply a sriracha mayo. You just whisk up mayo, sriracha, a little rice wine vinegar and a little sugar–easy breezy!

Easy breezy to make a vegetarian option! Swap out the shrimp for tofu or a plant-based protein. OR swap the shrimp for extra veggies like red pepper, shredded carrots, pickled veggies, radishes and extra avocado!

To make this vegan, simply add more veggies in place of the shrimp (see Vegetarian option above) and swap out the regular mayo for vegan mayo. Easy!
