Sushi Rice

  • 2 Tablespoons Rice Wine Vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon Sugar


  • 1 Pound Salmon
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper

Crispy Panko 

  • 1/2 Cup Panko Crumbs
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter


  • 2 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Rice Wine Vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon Orange Juice
  • 1 Tablespoon Honey
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Ground Ginger
  • Pinch Red Pepper Flakes

Spicy Mayo

  • 1/2 Cup Mayonnaise
  • 2 Tablespoons Siracha

  • Seaweed Sheets - thinly sliced

  • Sesame Seeds


Sushi Rice

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees (for the salmon).
  2. Make the sushi rice according to the package directions with the salt (making sure to rinse the rice well).
  3. Once the rice has cooked, place it into a bowl. Add the vinegar and sugar and fluff with a fork to combine. Place in the fridge to cool until needed.


  1. While your rice is cooking, place the salmon on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. 
  2. Place in the oven and bake for 12-15 minutes - or until salmon is fully cooked and flaky in the center.
  3. Set aside (or place in the fridge to cool if you prefer a cool bowl) until needed.

Crispy Panko 

  1. While the rice and salmon and cooking,  place panko crumbs in a small skillet with butter over medium heat. 
  2. Cook for 7-10 minutes until the crumbs have become golden brown - making sure to stir often so as not to burn. 
  3. Remove from the heat and place in a bowl until needed.


  1. Add everything to a small mason jar or glass container with a lid. Shake until well combined.
  2. Place in the fridge until needed - making sure to shake again before using.

Spicy Mayo

  1. In a bowl, add all of the ingredients. Whisk until everything is combined and smooth.
  2. Place in the fridge until needed.

To Assemble Bowl 

  1. To a small bowl, add sushi rice. Add a piece of salmon to the side and drizzle some of the dressing over the salmon and rice.
  2. Add your desired amount of seaweed, avocados, carrots, and cucumbers.
  3. Finish off with some crispy panko, sesame seeds, and spicy mayo. Enjoy!


Make-Ahead Tips

1. Make the rice and salmon ahead of time and store them in the fridge.
2. Make the dressing and spicy mayo and store in a sealed container in the fridge.
3. Make the crispy panko crumbs and store them in an air-tight container.
4. Slice the carrots and cucumbers and store them in the fridge.
5. Assemble your bowl whenever you want and add the avocado fresh at the end!
