Nut-Free Dairy-Free Gluten-Free


4 ounces salmon, preferably wild

1 teaspoon avocado oil

⅛ teaspoon kosher salt

1 cup instant brown rice

1 cup water

2 tablespoons mayonnaise

1 ½ teaspoons Sriracha

1 ½ teaspoons 50%-less-sodium tamari

1 teaspoon mirin

½ teaspoon freshly grated ginger

¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper

⅛ teaspoon kosher salt

½ ripe avocado, chopped

½ cup chopped cucumber

¼ cup spicy kimchi

12 (4 inch) sheets nori (roasted seaweed)


Preheat oven to 400ºF. Line a small rimmed baking sheet with foil. Place salmon on the prepared pan. Drizzle with oil; season with salt. Bake until the salmon flakes easily with a fork, 8 to 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, combine rice and water in a small saucepan; cook according to package directions. Mix mayonnaise and Sriracha in a small bowl; set aside. Whisk tamari, mirin, ginger, crushed red pepper and salt in another small bowl; set aside.

Divide the rice between 2 bowls. Top with salmon, avocado, cucumber and kimchi. Drizzle with the tamari mixture and the mayonnaise mixture. Mix the bowls, if desired, and serve with nori.

Is Salmon Healthy?

Salmon has many amazing health benefits. A 4-ounce cooked portion of wild salmon gives you a whopping 25 grams of protein, 2.2 g of heart-healthy omega-3s and more than a day’s worth of vitamin B12, according to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). Salmon also has the antioxidant astaxanthin—hence, its deep orange color—and an array of vitamins and minerals, including iodine, potassium and selenium. Per the USDA, sockeye salmon is also an excellent source of vitamin D, providing 60% of this vital nutrient in a 4-ounce cooked serving.

Does This Recipe Have Fiber?

Yes, thanks mostly to the fiber in the brown rice and avocado, one bowl will give you about 6 g of fiber, which is about 21% of your day’s worth.

Can I Swap the Rice for Quinoa?

Sure! By doing so, you’ll add over 3 g of protein and 2.5 g of fiber to this dish.
