  • ¼ cup reduced-sodium tamari or soy sauce or use coconut aminos for soy-free
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar or substitute, see notes
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar, maple syrup, or honey
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger or substitute, see notes
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha or substitute, see notes

Cooked Salmon Bowls

  • 1 pound salmon, skin and bones removed, cut into 1.5-inch cubes
  • 1 tablespoon olive or avocado oil
  • 1 cup sushi or jasmine rice, rinsed
  • 1 ½ cups water or broth
  • vegetables of choice
  • sliced avocado
  • spicy mayo


  • Add the cubed salmon to a medium bowl and add the marinade ingredients. Toss until well coated, then cover the bowl and let it marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  • While the salmon marinates, bring the rinsed rice and water or broth to a boil, cover, reduce the heat to medium-low and cook for however long the package suggests (this will vary depending on the type of rice you use).
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat with 1 tablespoon of oil. Once hot, add in the marinated salmon cubes and arrange them in a single layer. Cook on one side for 4 minutes, flip over and cook another 2-3 minutes, depending on your preference of doneness.
  • Arrange in bowls by adding the rice, salmon, vegetables, avocado, and a drizzle of sauce.


No salmon? - sub another type of fish or shrimp.
Make it vegan - use tofu (this crispy tofu recipe looks amazing).
No rice vinegar? - you can also use lime juice or apple cider vinegar.
No fresh ginger? - use ground ginger or ginger paste or omit it completely.
No granulated sugar? - honey or maple syrup also works.
No sriracha? - add cayenne or red pepper flakes instead.
Variations - use a different marinade, get creative with your toppings, switch up the sauce and try chipotle mayo, lemon miso sauce, or carrot ginger dressing.
