190611 - Recipe Tuesday with Jenn - Salmon Samurai Bowl

Screen Shot 2019-06-09 at 8.43.41 AM.png

This recipe is a mash-up of Coach LoLo’s Salmon Bites recipe and my personal fave at Tasty Harmony (Samurai Bowl, yum!).


Chunk of salmon (I opted for the canned variety)
Variety of Veggies
Sensible amount of some sort of Grain (I had black rice on hand)
Sesame seeds, Seaweed and your top 1-3 favorite Asian-inspired hot sauces


  • Follow LoLo’s simple directions for Salmon bites here (because I had canned Salmon, I formed them into Salmon cakes)

  • Cook up your grain

  • Whip up whatever veggies you have on hand. I recommend cooking some and leaving some raw to create a variety of textures. What I did specifically:

    • Pan sear carrots with a generous amount of fresh ginger, because ginger and carrots go so well together

    • Sweated a handful of green things; mostly finely-diced broccoli, kale and garlic

    • Thinly sliced some radishes and let those puppies sit in a tiny bit of rice wine vinegar

  • Assemble and enjoy! And leftovers instantly become meal prep ;)

  • Enjoy this picture of my homegrown carrots doing the can-can, You Go Carrots!
