Citrus Gochujang Sashimi Bowl


Makes 4 servings

This dish is packed with flavor and looks gorgeous too. Sautéed carrots, cremini mushrooms and vibrant edamame on a bed of perfectly seasoned short grain rice and topped with fresh tuna awaits the sauce of all sauces. The citrus gochujang sauce (make extra because you’ll want to pour this on everything!) is drizzled on top, giving the bowl an intense kick of red pepper, lime and soy. You’re going to love the freshness of this recipe.
