Salmon Sushi Bowl

Our salmon sushi bowl gives you the tanginess of rice vinegar, salty brine of fish sauce, a bite of green onion, and crunch of sesame seeds.

Salmon Sushi Bowls

If we’re gonna be technical about it, these salmon sushi bowls are not really sushi. True sushi is rice topped with raw fish. And while I love some raw or fresh seared seafood with or without rice, this dish does the trick when I’m hankering for a sushi fix but my grocery budget says “please no”.

I cook my rice in bone broth for a secret infusion of nutrition and flavor. We often have wild-caught salmon from our farm box in bulk, and with all the other goodies in this bowl, 1 1/2 pounds of fish provides a generous portion for four folks. This version uses riced cauliflower, but if you prefer regular rice, you do you.

Quick and easy to whip up, and oh so satisfying to enjoy.
