This Spicy Salmon Bowl is a bright and colorful meal that's packed with baked salmon, fresh veggies and whole grains. It's drizzled with a sweet and spicy mayo sauce.




  • 2 (4 ounce) salmon filets, cut into bite sized chunks
  • 3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon toasted sesame oil

Spicy Sriracha Mayo

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon sweet thai chili sauce
  • 2 teaspoon sriracha
  • 1 teaspoon water (optional)

Salmon Bowl

  • 2 cups brown rice, cooked
  • 1 carrot, cut into ribbons
  • 1/2 avocado, sliced
  • 1/4 english cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup shredded red cabbage


  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl, stir together the soy sauce, rice vinegar, honey and sesame oil. Pat the salmon pieces dry with a paper towel and add to the bowl. Stir to coat. Marinate in the refrigerator for 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, make the spicy sriracha mayo. In a small bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, sweet thai chili sauce, sriracha and water. Add a splash more water, as needed, to thin out the sauce so it can easily be drizzled. Set aside.
  4. Place the salmon pieces on the baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes until it's cooked through and easily flakes with a fork. 
  5. Assemble the bowls. Divide the rice between two bowls. Top with the salmon, carrot ribbons, avocado, cucumber, and cabbage. Finish with a drizzle of spicy sriracha mayo. Serve and enjoy!


To make it less spicy, use less sriracha in the mayo. If you like it more spicy, you can add an extra teaspoon of sriracha.

Storage:  Refrigerate in an airtight container for 2-3 days.
