Salmon Rice Bowl Recipe


  • 4 salmon fillets
  • salt
  • ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 3 cups rice (cooked, warm, I used white jasmine rice)
  • 3 cucumbers (I used Persian cucumbers, thinly sliced)
  • 1 avocado (diced)
  • kimchi (for serving, optional, to taste)
  • nori (aka roasted seaweed sheets, for serving, optional)
  • Spicy Mayo:
  • 6 tablespoons avocado oil mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons hot sauce (I use Sriracha)
  • Seasoned Soy Sauce:
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce (low sodium)
  • 2 teaspoons rice vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic (large, finely grated)
  • 1 teaspoon ginger (finely grated)

Total time:
30 minutes
Yield: 4 servings | Prep time: 20 minutes | Cook time: 10 minutes | Total time: 30 minutes


I use pre-cooked jasmine white rice for this recipe. If you need to cook rice, boil 2 cups of water. Add 1 tablespoon ghee or butter and 1 cup rinsed white rice. Bring to a boil and cook for 15-20 minutes. You’ll get approximately 3 cups of cooked white rice.


1. Preheat oven to 400F (200C). Place salmon fillets on baking sheet, season with salt and pepper, drizzle with avocado oil.

2. Bake salmon for 8-10 minutes (until the internal temperature is 140F (60C), it will later reach ~145F (63C) while resting).
3. While salmon is baking, in a small bowl combine mayo and sriracha. In a separate small bowl, combine soy sauce, rice vinegar, finely grated ginger and garlic.

4. Arrange the bowls. For each serving, place 3/4 cup cooked rice, top with salmon fillet. Add diced avocado. Arrange cucumber slices, kimchi and nori sheets on the sides. Drizzle with mayo and soy sauce mixture. Enjoy!

Yummy with just the right amount of heat

This is a great, easy meal option for busy weeknights. Easy prep, no fuss cooking, and the fact that it looks lovely plated is an added bonus. I sprinkled furikake over the cooked rice instead of serving with nori because it’s what I had on hand. Delicious!

I’m so glad you enjoyed it! Thank you for the wonderful review! - Alena
