Happy Whip It Up Wednesday everyone!

30 frozen cooked shrimp, defrosted
1 in sheet nori (seaweed find in grocery stores near the take to go sushi or Asian sauces aisle)
Wonton or tortilla strips
Sesame seeds to garnish

Bang Bang sauce;
1/2 cup mayo
2 tsp Sriracha
2 tsp sweet chili sauce
1/4 tsp salt

Quick guacamole;
1 avocado mashed
1-2 tsp lime juice
1 clove small garlic minced
1/2 tsp herbamare or sea salt

Mango salsa;
1/2 mango diced
1/4 cup red pepper diced
1/4 cup red onion diced
1/4 cup cilantro chopped
1 tbsp lime juice
1/4 tsp to 1/2 salt

Sushi rice;
1/2 cup dry sticky rice
3/4 cup water
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
1 tbsp sugar

In a rice cooker or in a small saucepan, cook sticky rice for the time accorded on package directions (usually 15-20 min).
Meanwhile, mix together ingredients for guacamole (or just use mashed avocado) and mix together mango salsa, along with bang bang sauce.
In a 1 or 2 cup measuring cup (I used a 2 cup measuring cup and it was the perfect size for dinner), spoon in mango salsa until a there is a thin layer, then spread half of the avocado mixture over top. Layer with shrimp, then strips of nori, then sticky rice.
Press down hard, then trace with a knife all the way around the measuring cup to loosen mixture. Dump onto a plate, careful to make sure mixture remains in tact.
Top mango salsa with crumbled wonton or tortilla strips, then drizzle bang bang sauce over top using a plastic bag with a tiny hole cut out in a corner. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve with fresh limes and soy sauce.
