Loaded with generous amounts of snow crab, tuna, sea urchin, and snapper, this voluminous seafood bowl is sure to whet your appetite before you even take the first bite.

The dish uses a milder vinegar rice than in typical Japanese seafood rice bowls, allowing the flavors of the seafood to shine through.
