  • Ice cube: It will provide moisture to steam the rice and salmon without having to add water to the plate.
  • Sesame oil: Just a teaspoon, to get that delicious umami favor when paired with soy.
  • Soy sauce: We recommend using low-sodium soy sauce. Remember that your cooked salmon might be already seasoned.
  • Mayonnaise: You can use regular mayo or try the Japanese kewpie mayo for a change.
  • Sriracha: optional but highly recommended!
