Spicy Salmon Roll Bowls
These spicy salmon roll bowls are easy to make and loaded with flavor. Lightly seasoned and topped with a spicy creamy sauce, you’re going to fall in love with this recipe. What’s great, is that you can customize these bowls too. I added avocado, cucumber, jalapeno, green onion, lime wedges and cilantro. However, any veggies would work great. Try shaved carrots, radishes, or anything you enjoy.
How to Pan Sear Salmon
Start by removing the pin bones from your salmon filet. You will feel the bones sticking out when you run your fingers over the meat of the fish. Simply us a pin bone remover or clean tweezers to get them all.
Next, you will remove the skin. Simply lay the fish flat, skin side down. Run a sharp knife under the meat and as close to the skin as possible. This will separate the meat from the skin.
Place the salmon filet on a cutting board and cube it into bite-sized pieces. Pat the cubed salmon dry with paper towels. Absorbing the excess moisture will allow the fish to get crispy on the outside.
Season the cubes with blackening spice. Toss until they are well coated.
Next, add olive oil to a non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the seasoned cubed salmon to the pan.
Sear for 3-4 minutes or until the salmon is cooked to your liking. Be sure to turn the cubes frequently so all sides of the salmon cook evenly.
How to Make Spicy Salmon Roll Bowls
Cook the salmon according to the instructions listed above. Once it’s ready, set it aside.
Cook your rice according to the package. You will need about ½ cup of cooked rice per person.
Assemble the dish.
Place the cooked rice in the bottom of a small bowl.
Top it with the sliced avocado, sliced cucumber, sliced jalapeno, chopped green onions, and cooked salmon cubes.
Next, add a pinch of fresh chopped cilantro and a few fresh lime wedges on the side.
Finish the dish with a drizzle of the spicy creamy sauce and a few shakes of furikake.

Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for three to four days. Option to reheat this dish in the microwave until the salmon and rice are warmed through. Looking for more seafood recipes?

This was SO good!!! 5/5 I will be making this again. All made under 30 minutes but I ate it all in about 60 seconds.
This was so delicious! I made a few tweaks to fit for me but mostly followed the recipe. Will definitely be in my rotation!
Amazing dish! Will be making this again. So flavorful 👍🏻🙌🏻
Tried this dish snd absolutly love it! One question though, does the nutritional facts have rice incleded?
Thank you! Yes, the rice is accounted for in the nutritional info!
The best recipe I’ve tried in a long time. Gonna become a regular meal!
This recipe is AMAZING and definitely going to be a regular in my rotation going forward! While I love salmon and that is what I made it with tonight, I love that it can be swapped out for shrimp or chicken or a mix of any/all proteins depending on your mood. Already looking forward to my leftovers tomorrow!!!
Uhhmayzing! This will absolutely going into lunch and dinner rotations!
HOLY MOLY! This was definitely one of the best recipes I’ve ever made. And not so difficult either!
10/10 flavor, process, and goodness!
This recipe is simple yet delicious! I made it in less than 20 minutes and it tastes just like my favorite sushi roll!
Our whole family (including teens) enjoyed this dish and requested I add it to our meal rotation. Simple and very quick to prepare and easy to substitute chicken or shrimp, also.
Made this for the first time tonight and it was so good!! I put the salmon in the air fryer for crisp. I also marinated it in soyaki sauce for about 30 minutes before putting it in the air fryer. I will definitely be making this again!
Made this tonight for dinner tonight and O.M.G.! It is soooo good! This one is a keeper for sure! I followed the recipe exact but you can really add or omit to it per your liking! I loved it just as is and will def put this in my rotation. You could probably serve it over a bed of greens if you wanted to be keto friendly. Thanks for sharing!
Absolutely delicious. My whole family enjoyed. My picky 11 and 12 year old too. I was shocked they said they loved it. It’s so tasty. Will be trying more recipes from here for sure.
Yall. If you need convincing to try this recipe, let this be it. I randomly saw this on an Instagram reel while I was scrolling in bed, and it looked delicious. I realized I had all the ingredients, and made it for lunch. Holy Heckinbob. The salmon turned out perfectly crisped on the edges but soft in the middle. The spicy mayo blew me away. I would never have thought to put those 3 items together, but they work like magic. It took me less than 20 minutes to assemble this meal, and less than $10 to feed myself and my hungry husband. I highly recommend an avocado on top, for texture. 1000/10, will be making this again asap.
This was SO delicious! I love making salmon bowls and this recipe was such a great way to spice up my salmon. It was easy to follow along. I also added in edamame for extra greens. And the sauce paired great with the salmon!
This was SO delicious! Salmon is one of my favorite types of fish and I’m always looking for new ways to eat it! This was super satisfying and came together quickly. This is going to be in my weekly rotation for sure!
Outstanding! I used deveined and peeled shrimp in place of the salmon as that is what I had on hand and placed it on a bed of fresh spinach. Will be making again … frequently. Thanks, Sarah!
Soooo delicious! We followed the recipe exactly and there’s nothing I would change, it’s perfect!! Perfect for meal prepping too and it’s so easy!
Absolutely delicious. Easy to make too! Can’t recommend this highly enough! I made it for myself and my two children and everyone agreed with me. Great way to serve salmon. I’ll definitely be making this one again.
First off, let me start by saying that I usually do not follow recipes when I cook. I get overwhelmed by the amount of ingredients and how complicated they can be. Welp, not this one! I just made this yesterday for dinner and let me tell you, it was EASY and DELICIOUS!!!! Salmon is one of my favorite proteins to cook with and this recipe was healthy, FUN to make, and so versatile. I followed the recipe exactly the way Sarah shared. I wouldn’t change a thing! My boyfriend who does not care for salmon, had a bite and mentioned how the presentation and taste was top notch restaurant quality 🙂 I am making the same bowl for lunch today, and am so looking forward to it! Sarah, thank you! You make cooking fun and easy!
This dish was fun to make. Instead of making bowls for my family, I put all the chopped veggies on the island so you just went down the line & added whatever you wanted. I also added shrimp because not everyone eats salmon. It was easy, light and enjoyable. Enjoy!!!!!
Made this tonight. Perfection.
Ok wow! I had to wait until today (Jan 10) to finally try this recipe and wow was it worth the wait. Just sooooo delicious. Perfectly balanced. All the yummy things. Just perfect. We will be eating this regularly from now on.
This was so tasty! My family devoured it, and my college age son wanted the recipe. I used toasted sesame seeds instead of the furikake. Will definitely make again. Thanks so much 😊
We all LOVED this recipe. Super YUM!!!
This was so amazing!!!! Can’t wait to try some of your other recipes!
This recipe was DELICIOUS! I have digestive problems and this meal was super light and filling. It was healthy AND tasty. Definitely give this recipe a 10/10!
We’ve made this recipe three times this week – with salmon and chicken. It’s a meal that comes together super fast on a week night and is honestly delicious. The spicy maple mayo is a big hit around here. My partner has commented twice on how good the flavour on the protein is – and I agree!
This bowl was one of the best meals I’ve made in a while. Lots of textures, flavors and the spicy mayo is amazing! 10/10 would recommend giving this recipe a try.
What an amazing and easy dish! I made this for dinner and a lunch meal prep for my work week! It was so yummy, fresh, and simple. I will make again.
This is my favorite new dinner recipe! I am making it for the 3rd week in a row, and find it’s a great way to satisfy my sushi cravings. It’s very flavorful and the sauce is perfection!
I’ve just had this for dinner and it was amazing! I added some shrimp since I didn’t have enough salmon. We loved every bite, it’s definitely a keeper!
Thank you for the recipe!
This sauce is everything! So simple but so amazing. This whole meal came together really quickly, I will definitely be making it over and over again.
This was SO easy to make and a big crowd pleaser for the boyfriend! Highly recommend for a quick and healthy dinner!
This was SO easy to make and my boyfriend loved it! Highly recommend for a quick and healthy dinner!
This recipe never disappoints! My only issue is that I always want more. My husband and two sons love it just as much as I do. Thank you for this delicious recipe.
This recipe is literally mind blowingly good!!! I crave it at least once a week! Thanks for sharing
I absolutely loved this! I want to make it again for company. It does have a KICK.
Serving this tomorrow! Should it be hot or cold? Maybe the rice and salmon be hot and of course, the veggies be cold? Not sure!
We have been making this recipe almost once a week since we’ve discovered it and I cannot rave enough about how good it is. The salmon and spicy sauce are such a great combo. You can load up the dish with almost anything you want but I think the recipe as is is perfect. It’s easy, delicious and addictive.
I love this! So fresh and just the right amount of spice.
This is one of my favorite go to dinners right now. Super simple and easy to make but so delicious.
This has become a quick and easy weekly family favorite in our home! My husband and I love poke bowls and this is a perfect dish to satisfy those cravings, even our toddlers love it! I love that it’s packed with veggies too, we added some arugula to it as well. And the sauce tastes like it belongs on top of a sushi roll, it’s heaven.
We do a quick pickle with the cucumbers for a little extra acid and it’s perfect! Love this recipe
Absolutely love this dish. One of my go to favorites! Super simple to make! I like to add edamame too!
First off, I am NOT a cook. In fact, I quite despise it but I love to eat good food. I found this page on instagram and made the Spicy Salmon bowls and they are soooo good and tasted so fresh! I love that the recipes are healthy (ish 😉) but still delicious! But more importantly, they were SO EASY! 10/10 recommend!
One of my wife’s favorites! We’ve substituted chicken before and still just as good!
I replaced the dressing with green goddess dressing and added tomato! 12/10!
This has quickly become a staple in our household! The blackening spice is perfect and the spicy mayo drizzle is life!
This recipe is AMAZING! I’m obsessed with it! It’s filling, delicious and doesn’t feel too heavy. I highly recommend trying this one out!
Best Salmon bowl ever!!
My family’s FAVORITE meal. We eat this at least once a week. I love it because it’s so versatile. You can add and change things out for what works for your own family. Our family likes to use frozen shrimp to make this meal a couple of times. Everything I’ve I had with the help of “Healthyish Food” is absolutely delicious, and will be a staple resource in our home! Thank you for all your delicious meals! 🙏🏼
This made my day! Thank you!
This is absolutely the best salmon recipe I make. My fiancé does not love fish but he requests this one often. The sauce is to die for! Don’t skip drying the dish. It makes a difference!
These roll bowls were a big hit for my fiance and I! We very quickly whipped them up (the biggest time constraint was cooking the rice and salmon, so I did that while he chopped the toppings). I also added mango because the spicy salmon roll at our go-to sushi restaurant has a delicious mango topping. It turned out great with the other bowl toppings Sarah listed in the recipe! We loved this dish and are making it again this week!
So delicious!!! My family asks for it every week!
Make this dish!!! 5/5. Actually 12/10, honestly. This recipe is so simple and incredibly delicious. I had almost all of the ingredients at home already. The sauce is seriously the best flavor ever. A little bit sweet from the syrup to go with the spicy in the blackening seasoning and the sriracha also in the sauce. The recipe is great as is, and I also added Lima beans and shredded carrots because I was craving them. It was a great little addition! I will absolutely make this often.
Quick, easy and delicious. My whole family loves this one and we can easily make it after the rush of sports and homework on weeknights.
My favorite recipe! Also love the sauce for other dishes.
Best recipe! Love the simple sauce too.
This is my go-to recipe for a healthy and delicious dinner during the week!! It’s so quick and easy and comes out perfect every time I’m so happy I found this recipe!
I have made this bowl a dozen different ways following this recipe loosely. The first time I used cold leftover tea smoked salmon. So good and refreshing! Tonight I made it using an Asian 7 spice seasoning for the salmon instead of blackened. I also had leftover herbs (Thai basil, mint, and cilantro) along with bean sprouts from making pho. I threw all those in with it and still so good! And I’m made all sorts of variations in between. It’s always great! Even as leftovers!
Excellent instructions. Easy and quick recipe Thanks,
So incredibly delicious!! With some minor substitutions this was an absolute hit! I reheated some leftover rice in the same pan after I fried the salmon and it was delicious!
