These Baked Salmon Sushi Bowls take your weeknight salmon and rice to a whole new level.
Starting with a simple marinade for the salmon, these Baked Salmon Sushi Bowls just need a handful of ingredients to make your typical salmon and brown rice more exciting. And while the salmon is baking slow and low, you’ll make your dressing and get all of your toppings prepared. Then once your salmon is perfectly flaky, you’ll be all set to build your own bowls exactly how you’d like.

Baked Salmon Sushi Bowls
Serves: 4 PeoplePrint
For the Salmon:
- 1 1/2 lbs center-cut salmon
- 2 tbsp avocado oil
- ¼ cup coconut aminos
- 1 tsp peeled and freshly grated ginger
- 1 tsp toasted sesame oil
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- ½ tsp white pepper
For the Dressing:
- 2 tbsp avocado oil
- 1 tbsp honey
- 2 tbsp coconut aminos
- 1 tsp fish sauce
- 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 2 tsp sriracha sauce or to taste
- 2 cloves garlic minced
For the Bowls:
- 1 ½ cups cooked brown rice
- 1 avocado peeled and sliced
- 2 persian cucumbers thinly sliced on the diagonal
- 2 green onions thinly sliced on the diagonal
- 4.5 g package of premium roasted seaweed or nori wraps thinly sliced
- Sriracha optional for serving
- 2 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
Make the Salmon:
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
- Pat the salmon dry and place it in a small oval baking dish.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the avocado oil, coconut aminos, ginger, and sesame oil until well combined. Pour over the salmon to coat evenly. Sprinkle the salmon with salt and pepper and transfer it to the oven and bake until the salmon flakes easily with a fork, 25 to 30 minutes.
Make the Dressing:
- In a small bowl, whisk together all of the dressing ingredients. Set aside.
Prepare the Bowls:
- To serve, flake the salmon with a fork into large pieces. Serve over rice and garnish your bowls as desired with avocado, cucumber, green onions and nori strips. Drizzle with the dressing (and more sriracha) if desired. Sprinkle it with toasted sesame seeds. Enjoy.
The salmon is cooked a little lower and slower so that you can prepare all of your bowl items and dressing while it bake, making the recipe come together pretty quickly and easily.

This was incredible! The marinade and dressing flavors made the dish! Salmon needed a little longer to cook for me – but was perfection. Also added matchstick carrots, and a little rice vinegar to the cucumbers. 10/10 woudl recommend!

Wow maybe one of my faves of yours. Copper river salmon in season now! Added shredded carrots. This is def on repeat.
MackenzieMay 10, 2022 at 12:11 am
We loved this! The tip to cook the salmon at a lower temp to allow time to get everything else done was so helpful for weeknight dinner.
Brenna BurnsMay 1, 2022 at 5:22 pm
I have been looking for a way to like salmon. I want to eat it, I know it’s good for me, but I can’t ever figure out how to cook it and make it taste non-fishy. This recipe was the bomb! The cooking method was perfect and the sauce was amazing. I can totally eat this once a week!
AlexMay 2, 2022 at 5:05 pm
yay!! so glad you are loving it.
JeanetteApril 27, 2022 at 11:49 pm
Made this tonight and it was soo good. Love how easy and quick this was and healthy too! Another DD hit.
CarlyApril 25, 2022 at 11:57 pm
This was amazing! Another recipe that will be made often-I can always count on you Alex 🙂 For someone who likes sushi/rare salmon more than cooked, I couldn’t get enough of this! Even my 12 year old seafood lover devoured it. Highly recommend and super easy for a delicious weeknight dinner!
AmyApril 21, 2022 at 12:49 am
Is the oven temp supposed to be 400 degrees instead of 300? I baked at 300 and it’s still pretty raw..
AlexMay 2, 2022 at 5:12 pm
no, it is meant to be at 300!
MonikaApril 20, 2022 at 10:40 pm
Alex, you definitely hit it out of the park with this one. This is one of best meals I’ve eaten. The salmon and the dressing are just so good! I’m sending this recipe to all of my friends
IzzyApril 7, 2022 at 10:53 pm
This was so good, I used soy sauce instead because I ran out of coconut amino’s and it was very good.
RachelApril 7, 2022 at 2:19 am
Wow, this recipe is incredible. Made this tonight as I needed a new salmon recipe, and it did not disappoint. I think I will slow cook salmon this way from now on!
AlexApril 11, 2022 at 12:08 am
so happy you enjoyed it!! Makes the salmon SO FLAKEY and delish!
LeaApril 2, 2022 at 2:25 am
So yummy! We could eat this every week. Easy to make and delicious!
MorganMarch 31, 2022 at 2:34 am
Obsessed with this recipe!! So simple to make but soooo good! Will definitely be adding it to the rotation!
CourtneyMarch 31, 2022 at 2:00 am
This was DELICIOUS! It was super easy to make and everyone loved it! The only change to the recipe was that I used white rice. Oh, and I was generous with the honey for the dressing. Yum!
ChristaMarch 30, 2022 at 10:15 pm
One of the best salmon recipes we’ve tried! We live in Alaska with a freezer full of fish and are always looking for new ways to eat it. This will definitely go in our rotation. Highly recommend.
Morgan MaurerMarch 30, 2022 at 9:08 pm
Made these bowls last night and WOW! Truly one of my new favorite recipes, and definitely my new favorite salmon recipe! I absolutely love how the entire meal comes together while the salmon cooks – this is a really flavorful and fancy meal that comes together quickly and easily. Thanks, Alex!!
TaylorMarch 29, 2022 at 7:37 pm
So, so good! Don’t leave out the nori. So delicious. For a salmon-averse kid, i fried a couple of eggs and let her have that on top. Huge crowd pleaser and just as delicious for lunch the next day!
WillMarch 27, 2022 at 11:59 pm
we made this tonight and it was fantastic!! We made a couple of addition with a touch of rice vinegar to the cucumbers and the rice and a squeeze of kewpie mayo on top of everything.
SarahMarch 27, 2022 at 11:35 pm
This was so good! My husband who doesn’t really like salmon loved it, too! Thanks Alex!
Whitney FMarch 25, 2022 at 8:48 pm
This recipe is a keeper!! My kids kept going back for more helpings. Adding this one to our regular rotation.
SarahMarch 25, 2022 at 2:31 am
Made this for dinner tonight and it was so easy and delicious!! Will be making this all the time now!
EMarch 24, 2022 at 3:53 am
Phenomenal!!! Couldn’t be any easier! The salmon was perfectly cooked and all the flavors are in incredible.
AnneMarch 23, 2022 at 4:52 am
Yummy! What brown rice did you use?
AlexMarch 23, 2022 at 11:51 am
I buy the brown rice in the steamer bags from the freezer section (they sell at Whole Foods, Central Market, and Trader Joe’s for sure).
