Salmon Rice Bowl Recipe


Add this flavorful rice bowl with salmon to your dinner menu! My salmon rice bowl recipe features plenty of veggies + a savory soy drizzle.


  • 6 servings rice 
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce 
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise 
  • 2 tsp. ginger, minced (I use the stuff in a tube/frozen)
  • 2 cloves garlic, zested
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 Tbsp. chili garlic sauce (optional) 
  • 1 cucumber 
  • 2 Tbsp. rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp. sesame oil
  • 5 oz. baby spinach
  • 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil, divided
  • 6 oz. snow peas
  • 16 oz. salmon fillets (4 4-oz. salmon)
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt  
  • garnish: sesame seeds, green onions, sriracha


  1. Prepare rice according to directions.
  2. In a large bowl, toss sliced cucumbers with rice wine vinegar. Set aside. 
  3. In a small bowl, stir together soy sauce, mayonnaise, ginger, garlic and honey. Set aside.
  4. Heat sesame oil in a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add spinach, stirring constantly and cooking just until wilted, about a minute or two. Place spinach on a plate and wipe out pan.
  5. Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in same nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add snow peas and saute for 2-3 minutes, until lightly charred. Set aside on plate. 
  6. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in same nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Season salmon with salt and place into hot pan, skin-side up. Cook for about 4-5 minutes, flip over, and cook another 4-5 minutes, until cooked through. 
  7. Assemble bowls. Top rice with veggies, salmon, and sauce to taste.
