Prep and Pickle Cucumber

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Wash and dry all produce. Quarter lemon. Halve, pit, peel, and dice avocado; toss in a small bowl with a squeeze of lemon juice and a pinch of salt. Trim and thinly slice scallions, separating whites from greens. Trim, peel, and halve cucumber lengthwise; thinly slice crosswise into halfmoons. In a separate small bowl, combine cucumber, vinegar, ½ tsp sugar (1 tsp for 4), and a pinch of salt. Set aside.

Make Sauce and Cook Rice

In a third small bowl, combine mayonnaise, jam, sriracha, half the garlic powder, 1 tsp water (2 tsp for 4), and a pinch of salt. Melt 1 TBSP butter in a small pot over medium-high heat. Add scallion whites; cook, stirring, until softened, 1 minute. Add rice, ¾ cup water (1½ cups for 4), and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil; cover and reduce to a low simmer. Cook until rice is tender, 15-18 minutes. Keep covered off heat until ready to serve.

Roast Broccoli

While rice cooks, cut broccoli florets into 1-inch pieces. Toss on a baking sheet with a drizzle of oil, half the sesame seeds, salt, and pepper. Roast on top rack until broccoli is golden brown and crispy, 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven and toss with a squeeze of lemon juice and half the scallion greens.

Make Batter and Prep Shrimp

Meanwhile, rinse shrimp under cold water; pat very dry with paper towels. Season with salt. In a large bowl, combine tempura mix, remaining garlic powder, ⅓ cup cold water (⅔ cup for 4 servings), and salt (we used ½ tsp; 1 tsp for 4). (TIP: If mixture is too thick, add more water 1 TBSP at a time until it reaches a pancake batter-like consistency.) Stir shrimp into batter until fully coated. Heat a ¼-inch-layer of oil in a large, heavybottomed pan over medium-high heat.

Cook Shrimp

Once oil is hot enough that a drop of batter sizzles when added to the pan, working in batches, add coated shrimp in a single layer. Cook until golden brown and cooked through, 2-3 minutes on the first side and 1-2 minutes on the second side. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. Immediately season with salt and pepper.

Finish and Serve

Fluff rice with a fork; stir in 1 TBSP butter and season with salt and pepper. Divide between bowls. Top with shrimp, avocado, and cucumber. Drizzle shrimp with sauce; top with remaining scallion greens and sesame seeds, plus a pinch of chili flakes. Serve with broccoli and any remaining lemon wedges on the side.
