  • Avocado: Use ripe but firm avocado for the best texture.
  • Yum Yum Sauce: If you prefer homemade, mix mayonnaise, ketchup, garlic powder, paprika, and a touch of sugar for a quick yum yum sauce.
  • Customization: Add other sushi favorites like shredded carrots, sliced cucumbers, pickled ginger, or a sprinkle of sesame seeds for extra flavor and crunch.


  • Refrigerate: Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
  • Reheat: Reheat the cauliflower rice and shrimp gently in the microwave. The avocado is best added fresh, so slice a new one if needed.
