Make healthy lunches a breeze with this Healthy Salmon and Rice bowl recipe.

You may have seen this recipe all over TikTok – and it’s for good reason! This recipe is so easy and is packed with nutrition. Omega-3-rich salmon for heart health, fiber-loaded rice, and avocado for those healthy satiating fats. Nori (seaweed) is also a great source of iodine, which can help support thyroid function and healthy hormones.

This recipe is effortless – everything is either leftovers or pre-made! You could even substitute the cooked salmon fillet for canned salmon, making it a great office lunch that you can bring with you.

You could even add in any extra ingredients you might have on hand – cucumbers, more sriracha, green onions, gut-healthy kimchi.

  • 1 cooked salmon fillet (about 4 oz.) I like to use Wild Atlantic salmon fillets.
  • 3/4 cup cooked rice-white or brown rice.  
  • 1 ice cube
  • 1 oz. avocado, diced
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce or coconut aminos would also work
  • 1 tsp kewpie mayonnaise or 1 Tbsp homemade kewpie mayo-1 Tablespoon light mayo, 1/2 tsp rice vinegar and 1/8 tsp sugar. Whisk until sugar dissolves) 
  • 2 tsp sriracha, to taste 
  • roasted seaweed sheets, optional
  • Kimchi, optional 


  1. Place the salmon filet, assuming it’s leftover, and shred it onto a plate until it’s broken up into small pieces. I use a fork to do this.
  2. Add the leftover rice right over the salmon, then place one ice cube in the center right in the middle of the rice.
  3. Cover with parchment paper or a paper towel and microwave on high for 2 to 2 1/2 minutes.
  4. Remove the bowl from the microwave and discard any remaining ice.
  5. Add soy sauce, the light homemade kewpie mayonnaise and sriracha.
  6. Mix until rice/salmon are well combined.
  7. Top with diced avocado and more mayonnaise, more sriracha and soy sauce, if desired.
  8. You can eat as is or add kimchi and/or wrap the salmon mixture in your seaweed sheets and enjoy as mini-roll ups!
