 Simple teriyaki salmon bowls full of taste!

New year, new meal ideas. If you're in the market for some new dinner ideas to add to your menu rotation, this is it! Let me introduce you to one of our favorites. Our Teriyaki Salmon Bowls are not only pretty to look at and delicious to eat, it's also simple to make. And we love a meal that involves little time and effort in the kitchen while also offering exceptional taste. 

Personally, I don't think you could go wrong with a teriyaki anything. But there's something extra delightful about salmon teriyaki, especially when you cook the salmon to crispness. Scoop it up with rice, mukimame, and avocado, and it's a bite of heaven. Even our seven-year-old would agree! She enjoys this meal as much as Pete and I do! 

  • What You'll Need (for 4 servings):
    • For the bowl
      • 1.5-2lbs salmon
      • 4 cups cooked brown rice
      • Mukimame, steamable bag
      • 2 avocados
      • Toasted sesame seeds for topping
    • Teriyaki sauce
      • 4 TBSP maple syrup
      • 2 TSP sesame oil
      • 4 TSP soy sauce
      • 1 TSP garlic granules

  • What You'll Do
    • Start by cooking your brown rice. We cook 2 cups of brown rice in 4 cups of water.
    • Next, remove the skin of the salmon and cut into chunks.
    • Sauté in just a light drizzle of sesame oil. 
    • While it is cooking, mix together the ingredients for the teriyaki sauce. Set aside.
    • Once the salmon has cooked through, pour the teriyaki sauce over top and gently stir. Let it cook until the salmon crisps up, stirring occasionally. 
    • In the meantime, steam the mukimame according the package directions. 
    • Slice up the avocado.
    • Serve the salmon, rice, mukimame, and avocado on a plate, sprinkling with toasted sesame seeds if desired. Enjoy!
