Raise your hand if you LOVE Bang Bang Sauce!!!
I made some Air Fryer Bang Bang Shrimp a few days ago and was excited to try it on salmon.
How to make Bang Bang Salmon with Cauliflower Rice
The Bang Bang Sauce is just mayo (or light mayo), sweet chili sauce, and Sriracha.
Yes, it’s that simple.
Just whisk it together and brush some over some salmon fillets.
Add a little salt and pepper and the salmon is ready to be cooked.
In the air fryer it takes about 13 to 15 minutes at 400 degrees.
In the oven it takes 13 to 15 minutes as well.
I had a bag of frozen cauliflower rice that I cooked in the microwave according to the package directions.
Then just place the salmon right over the rice.
Now comes the BEST part…the sauce!!!
Now it may look from this picture that I used it sparingly, no way!
I started with this and kept adding to it and mixed it all around with the cauliflower rice.
It’s also really good with a squeeze of lemon over top 🙂
I tend to make more than I know my family will eat to have leftovers for lunch the next day.
These little 2 oz cups with lids are perfect for packing the sauce on the side.
And here I am, trying to devour this amazing Bang Bang Salmon with my sweet (and somewhat spoiled) baby boy on my lap.
He thinks it looks good too I believe 🙂
