This shrimp and rice bowl recipe is perfect for a hearty dinner or lunch. It comes together in about 35 minutes and features a lot of crunchy vegetables, including cucumbers, carrots, radishes, scallions, and bean sprouts. Just keep in mind that people with weakened immune systems, like children, the elderly, and pregnant women, should avoid eating raw bean sprouts. You can omit them from this recipe if you wish. The veggies are flavored with a quick dressing made of rice vinegar, ponzu sauce, sesame oil, grated ginger, and spicy Sriracha. This recipe calls for a cilantro garnish, but feel free to use whatever fresh herbs you have handy.
