Recipe: Sushi in a Bowl

If you’re a sushi fan and have ever wanted to be able to make it at home without needing to master the skills of sushi rolling here’s a recipe for you! Oh and did I mention you can make most of it in an air fryer and microwave? (If you’d like/have those appliances accessible, so it’s pretty simple recipe).

Yields 2 servings


  • 2 servings of microwave rice of your choice

  • 8 oz of salmon, cut into cubes

  • Veggies of your choice, suggested: cucumber, carrots, avocado and/or mini peppers

  • Sesame seeds, soy sauce for garnish (optional)

For spicy mayonnaise:

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise

  • 2 tbsp Sriracha

  • 1 tsp sesame oil (optional)


  • Cut the salmon into cubes of equal size

  • Toss salmon in oil of your choice and salt and pepper to taste

  • Air fry until cooked to internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit. If you do not have an air fryer, you could bake or cook on stovetop

  • While salmon is cooking, cut vegetables of your choosing into bite sized pieces (no need for perfection, just picture what would be feasible to eat with your bites of food!)

  • Prep spicy mayonnaise as per above

  • Follow instructions for microwave rice

  • With all components cooked/prepped, assemble a bowl to your preference. Drizzle spicy mayo over the fish and vegetables with additional soy sauce and sesame seeds (optional)

For a plant-based option this would also likely work great with tofu prepped in a similar way to the salmon! When followed as above, this recipe comes together in around less than 20 minutes; it’s a great use of little time as you can prep different aspects while the fish cooks (and seafood cooks fairly quickly so the prep time isn’t long)!

Hope you enjoy this meal, which is a delicious blend of carbohydrates, protein, fat, and fiber without the work or talent needed for sushi rolling. The crunch and color of it all is also fantastic!
