How to make Teriyaki Salmon

Making a teriyaki salmon bowl is very easy: Start by cooking the sushi rice. In the meantime, make the sauce by mixing rice vinegar, brown sugar, and salt in a small bowl. When the rice is ready, pour the dressing over and stir to coat the rice. Divide the cooked rice between bowls and sprinkle the rice with sesame seeds. Add edamame and sliced avocado to each bowl.

Make the Teriyaki sauce by mixing the honey, sesame oil, tamari (or soy sauce), garlic, ginger, and Sriracha in a small bowl. In a skillet over medium heat, heat oil and add the diced salmon filets. Brown the salmon quickly on all sides, then pour the Teriyaki sauce over the salmon. Turn the heat up to high and stir to coat the salmon in Teriyaki sauce; then sprinkle the scallions on top. Cook on high heat until the salmon is glazed and cooked to your liking. Divide salmon into the bowls.

1. To make this easy Teriyaki Salmon Bowl: Cook the sushi rice according to the packet instructions. Add a small dollop of butter to the rice if you like.

2. In the meantime, mix the rice vinegar, brown sugar, and salt together in a small bowl, stirring well until the sugar and salt have dissolved in the vinegar. When the rice is cooked, pour the dressing over and stir to coat the rice.

3. Divide the cooked rice between two bowls so that two-thirds of each base is covered. Sprinkle rice with sesame seeds. In the remaining third, arrange edamame and sliced avocado.

4. To make the Teriyaki sauce, mix the honey, sesame oil, tamari (or soy sauce), garlic, ginger, and Sriracha together in a small bowl.

5. In a skillet over medium heat, heat 1 tablespoon oil and add the diced salmon filets. Brown the salmon quickly on all sides, then pour the Teriyaki sauce over it. 

6. Turn the heat back up to high – stir so that the salmon is fully coated in the Teriyaki sauce and then sprinkle the spring onions over the top. Continue to cook on high heat for a couple of minutes, stirring occasionally, until the salmon is glazed and cooked to your liking. Remove from the pan and scoop the teriyaki salmon and spring onions onto the sushi bowls. Serve the Teriyaki salmon bowl with extra tamari soy sauce on the side if you like. Enjoy! ❤️

    Christina, at the end of the day im not gonna sit here eating a bowl of salmon, avocado, sushi rice, and edamame and pretend like im upset, because im not but 2 teaspoons of soy sauce for a pound of salmon is criminally underdressed. Love where youre going with that honey ginger business, but i mean lets get a little loose and open it up. I mean even in the staging photo youve got like a mason jar of that shit. What happened between that picture and you typing up the report. Anyways, big fan of the direction, moderate supporter of the execution. Ill go ahead and check out your other recipes

    The final dish tasted great (though I didn't add any flavour to my rice) but the bowl was pretty dry using the stated measurements. I would definitely double if you like a saucier meal. I would also marinate the salmon in the sauce first to try and intensify the flavour.

    Followed instructions to a T, but for me the flavor wasn't very strong for the salmon. I let it brown in the pan for additional flavor but I ended up adding flavored furikake so that I had more flavor overall for the dish. Not sure if will try again.

    I liked it the second time I made because I made adjustments. The vinegar is so strong in the rice. I noticed in the picture, it doesn’t look that is a teaspoon of brown sugar. Maybe a typo? I tried a tablespoon instead the second time and it was better but can still smell/taste the vinegar just not as strong. I also doubled the sauce recipe, I may have used more salmon because it wasn’t enough but the second time after doubling it, was much better. Not sure if 3 tablespoons of vinegar is correct or the measurements in the sauce for the rice is correct.
