Pat the salmon fillets dry and season with blackened seasoning. Check your seasoning packaging to see if it has sodium/salt added. If not, you should also season each salmon fillet with a pinch of salt.

Preheat a large non-stick skillet, and place the salmon on the skillet skin-down. Cook over medium-low heat for 3-4 minutes, or until the bottom half of the salmon turns pink.

Carefully flip the salmon and cook on the other side for about 3-4 minutes, or until the salmon is fully cooked.

Another option is to air fry the salmon just follow the cooking instructions for air fryer trout! And yes, you can use blackened trout for these rice bowls instead of salmon!

While the salmon is cooking, prepare the rice in the microwave: follow the instructions on the rice packaging to squeeze the pouch to separate the rice. Tear two inches at the top to vent the pouches, and cook 2 pouches for 2.5 minutes.

If cooking 3 pouches, cook 2 pouches for 2.5 minutes, and then the third one for 90 seconds. If cooking 4 pouches, cook 2 at a time for 2.5 minutes each. Carefully transfer the hot rice to the bowls.

Rinse the black beans and corn. If you like, you can heat the black beans and corn up in a skillet or the microwave, and stir in a few pinches of blackened seasoning.

Slice your avocado, and pluck off some cilantro leaves. Thinly slice the red onion. Slice the lime.

Divide the cooked rice between 4 bowls. Top with cooked salmon fillets, black beans, corn, avocado, and cilantro.

11. Crispy Rice Spicy Salmon

Crispy Rice Spicy Salmon

Ingredients

  • Cooked sushi rice:
  • Seasonings (Salt and sugar)
  • Rice Vinegar
  • Sushi-grade Salmon
  • Mayonnaise (Kewpie Mayo preferably)
  • Sriracha
  • Lime juice
  • Toasted sesame oil
  • Soy sauce
  • Green Onions or Scallions + Jalapenos
  • Wasabi avocado
  • Salmon

Recipe:

You can prepare the sushi rice in your rice cooker, or instant pot, or boil it on the stove. Once the rice is done, we’ll season it with kosher salt, sugar, and rice vinegar.

When it’s cool enough to handle, grab a plastic wrap and line your 9×5 baking dish with this. Place the rice in the dish and flatten it into a large rice cake.

You can also use a rice mold if you have one, but the 9×5 baking dish and a knife to cut pieces also work just fine! Cover the rice cake and let it refrigerate until set.

Grab the sushi-grade salmon filet and place it on a clean cutting board. Dice the salmon into small pieces, and combine the mayo, lime juice, sriracha, sesame oil, soy sauce, and scallions. Place the salmon mixture in the fridge while you fry the rice cakes in a skillet.

Heat a couple of tablespoons of high-heat oil in a skillet. I like to use avocado oil or canola oil here. Then fry rice cakes on medium-high heat in the skillet until golden and crispy.

 Remove them to a plate lined with a paper towel so that it can absorb any excess oil and let them cool.

Combine the avocado and the wasabi paste with a small pinch of salt in a bowl and smash it down using a potato masher or a fork.

Dollop the avocado on the rice cake, top with the prepared salmon, and place a jalapeno slice on top. You can also sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds if you like.

  • Salmon ( 6-oz.)

  • Vegetables Slaw
  • Firecracker Peanut Sauce (peanut butter, soy sauce, sesame oil, chili sauce, rice vinegar, and some zesty aromatics like ginger and garlic.)

Sauté salmon in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Let the salmon cook for about 3 minutes, until it appears ~75% cooked on the sides. Flip the salmon, turn off the heat, and cook for 1 to 2 more minutes, until cooked through. Remove from heat.

Prepare slaw by combining cabbage, green onion, vinegar, sesame seeds, and salt in a medium bowl; toss to combine.

Assemble bowls by dividing rice evenly into each of four bowls. Top each bowl with one salmon fillet and a spoonful of slaw. Next, drizzle peanut sauce evenly over all components, and garnish with peanuts and green onion.

Pour in the chicken or vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15-20 minutes until the rice is cooked and liquid is absorbed.

Season the salmon fillets with salt, pepper, and dried thyme. In a skillet, melt the remaining tablespoon of butter over medium-high heat.

Place the salmon fillets in the skillet and cook for about 3-4 minutes per side until golden and cooked through. Remove from the skillet and set aside.

In the same skillet, add the lemon zest and juice. Stir in any remaining garlic butter from cooking the salmon. Heat for a minute, and then remove from heat.

Plate the cooked rice pilaf and place the salmon fillets on top. Drizzle the lemon garlic butter over the salmon. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley for a pop of color and added freshness.
