TERIYAKI SALMON BOWL
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
Serves: 2 people
- 2 - 4 oz pieces of salmon

- 2 green onions, diced
- 1 cup white rice, cooked
- 2 tbsp low fat mayonnaise
- 1 tsp sriracha

- Marinade salmon pieces in teriyaki sauce. This can either be done at time of purchase by adding two fresh fillets and 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce to a medium-sized freezer bag and freezing in sealed bag (for up to 6 month) or by marinading in sauce for at least 2 hours in the fridge.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Cook rice as per package.
- While rice is simmering, cook the salmon for 15 minutes, or until done.
- In small bowl, mix mayonnaise and sriracha to create spicy mayo. Add more sriracha for desired spiciness.
- In an individual serving bowl, layer ingredients: rice, salmon, carrots and onions.
- Drizzle with spicy mayo (see below for instruction on how to garnish).

How to Garnish with Spicy Mayo
- small sandwich bag
- small drinking glass
- spicy mayo
- Gather materials listed above.
- Place small sandwich bag inside small drinking glass and fold top of bag over the edges of the glass.
- Using the spoon, scoop the spicy mayo into the bag.
- Remove the bag from the glass and carefully squeeze the spicy mayo into one bottom corner of the bag.
- Holding the bag at the top of the spicy mayo, carefully make a small cut in the corner of the bag. Make sure not to squeeze the mayo too tight as it will come squirting out of the bag.
- Applying a bit of pressure, squeeze the bag until the mayo starts coming out of the corner of the bag.
- Garnish the salmon (or other food item) as you see fit - straight thin lines, squiggly lines, thick lines, etc.
Remember when purchasing seafood, sustainable is best. When it comes to Atlantic salmon, open-net pen farmed is why you're looking for. And if you prefer wild caught, make it gill net caught Chinook from British Columbia and Alaska.
