In the produce section of the grocery store last week, we were debating what to have for dinner. Fish tacos, absolutely delicious but time consuming or poke bowls, fresh and simple.

A lady walking by said “poke bowls!” and our decision was made lol. Sometimes deciding what to make for dinner is my least favorite part of the whole process.

These spicy shrimp bowls are such a yummy meal that they make the dinner time decision easy! They’re also great for lunch and are easy to pack for a grab and go staple.

The shrimp are simply tossed with a blend of seasonings and can be cooked using your favorite method. For this recipe we’ve simply sauteed them in a skillet with a bit of oil.

Leftover rice and fresh vegetables can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for a day or two.

Shrimp can be cooked in the air fryer, stove top or grill.

This rice bowl would be great with garlic butter shrimp, panko shrimp or sweet chili shrimp.
