Why Make These Teriyaki Salmon Rice Bowls

Teriyaki Salmon Rice Bowls are savory and full of umami. They will cure your sushi cravings without the raw fish. This recipe is simple to whip up and ready in 20 minutes!

There is lots of texture from the grains, edamame and crunch from cucumber. Because of all the toppings, these bowls will leave you satisfied and feeling full. The sriracha mayo and avocado is the perfect creaminess to the bowl. It’s an easy dish to make but pops with complex flavor profiles

If you like sushi style bowls check out my Salmon Hand Rolls as well they are wonderful and similar in flavor. Blackened Salmon is another great easy meal to try.

This meal is a great way to add more omega-3 fats, fiber, vitamins, and minerals to your diet

How To Make This Recipe

Steps to make Teriyaki Salmon bowls in a glass bowl and on a cutting board.

Step One. Set oven to 400º Rinse your salmon and pat dry with a paper towel. With a sharp knife slice salmon into 1 inch cubes. In a medium sized bowl add teriyaki sauce and seasoning. Mix together well, add in salmon and make sure it is all covered. Set aside until oven is ready.

Step Two. Next, prepare your farro or long grain rice accordingly, typically it takes about 15-20 minutes to cook. On a parchment lined cooking sheet, place salmon and leftover sauce from the bowl on the pan. Make sure the salmon isn’t touching each other otherwise it will stick together. Bake for 14 – 16 minutes. Until desired doneness.

Step Four. Once salmon and grain of choice is finished, begin to assemble bowls. Farro or grains on the bottom, add salmon, cucumber, edamame, avocado. Garnish the bowls with green onions and dried seaweed crumbles. Drizzle the bowls with the mayo sriracha mix and enjoy!

Store leftovers in an airtight container for up to 4 days in the refrigerator. I do not recommend freezing this recipe.

Recipe Tips

Customize it! Make this salmon bowl your own with veggies you love! Swap out what you want, you really can’t go wrong.

Make It Healthier. Skip the mayo and avocado to cut several calories. You can also serve the Teriyaki salmon and toppings over chopped cabbage or romaine and skip the grains! This will make it a much lighter meal.

Add Extra Sauce! If you want, add more Teriyaki once you serve these bowls, I know some of us (like my husband) like extra sauce on everything!

To Meal Prep; just wait to add the avocado and cucumber until you are ready to enjoy. Eat it hot or room temperature! I like it warm, but either way will work if you don’t like to reheat fish, it’s still great cold.

    My family loved it. The flavors mixed really well together.

    1. I am thrilled to hear that! This is by far a family favorite here too. Thanks for coming back to let me know.

    My daughter and I made this over the weekend holy smokes it was so good will definitely make again soon!

  3. The notes show onion powder and paprika, but they aren’t listed as ingredients in the recipe. Are these added to the teriyaki sauce? How much? When is the 1/2 Tbs of olive oil added? Also, how long can you marinate the salmon cubes? This looks and sounds so delicious but I want to make sure I’m doing it right, thanks!

    1. Hi Carrie!
      Great catch with the onion powder/paprika! I added that in, it’s 1/4 tsp each and you will add that with the teriyaki. You will drizzle the olive oil over the salmon before popping it into the oven. Since the salmon is baking in the sauce, no marinating is necessary BUT you can marinate it for up to 24 hours and it would just be extra delicious (I do this all the time with my firecracker salmon recipe!!!) Let me know if you have more questions or what you think of the recipe!
