These Baked Salmon Sushi Bowls take your weeknight salmon and rice to a whole new level. 

Baked Salmon Sushi Bowls

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

Total: 45 minutes
Servings: 4 People


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.

    So yummy and even kid friendly. This is one of my go-to recipes. Love that you can prep everything else while the salmon is cooking – AND get the dishes washed!

  2. This is a great and easy recipe – making it tonight before I dive head-on into Thanksgiving mode! I sometimes add a sautéed green vegetable (spinach or cabbage) to the bowl but it’s already perfect as is.

    One of my all time fave recipes. It was in our meal rotation almost every week this past summer!! I love the combination of all these flavors and the recipe is simple to make. We grilled the salmon a few times as well which was also delicious!

    This recipe is the BEST! Easy to put together – I take a shortcut and use TJ’s frozen organic brown rice.

    This was a huge hit with the family! ALL three kids (2-7 years) ate almost everything AND liked it! I honestly thought it was going to take me longer than it did (new recipes usually do), but this came together fairly quick. Thank you for this one!
