Salmon Sushi Bowls

Salmon Sushi Bowls

I promise not to be offended if you call these salmon sushi bowls a “lazy sushi” recipe.

You know why?!

It kind of is!

I have made sushi before, like the whole authentic sha-bang.

The sushi rice, the rolling with the fancy mat, etc. It was A LOT of work!

This lazy way I can enjoy all the yumminess of sushi without all the hassle.

These bowls are something you really should try next time you have a sushi craving 🙂

How to Make Salmon Sushi Bowls

Brush some salmon fillets with soy sauce, honey, and Sriracha.

You could bake them easy peasy, but I used my air fryer.

Either way it’s 400 degrees for 15 minutes.

Now I admitted this dish was lazy, and the rice is no exception.

I used the Uncle Ben’s microwavable Jasmine rice.

Why?! Because I worked all day and don’t want to make traditional sushi rice (pure honestly right here).

Feel free to use whatever rice you prefer though, even cauliflower rice!

I’ve been kind of obsessed with the frozen cauliflower rice that comes in a steamable bag.

Since hitting 40 most of the carbs I once loved have been replaced by cauliflower rice or zucchini noodles.

This is not such a bad thing, though, they are both a great substitute.

Whichever rice you are using, divide it up once it’s at room temp and top each bowl with the salmon, avocado, and mango.

Everyone likes their salmon sushi bowls differently.

For me I prefer all the fixins’ like spicy mayo, soy sauce, wasasi, and oh so much pickled ginger. I’m kind of a pickled ginger hog, but I’m ok with that 🙂

The spicy mayo is simple enough to make with just mixing light mayo and Sriracha together.
