If you’re looking for a tasty way to use up leftover salmon and rice, Emily Mariko has the perfect recipe for you. Her salmon rice bowl is made mashing a salmon fillet with a fork and combining it with cooked rice. But what sets this dish apart is the addition of an ice cube.
By placing an ice cube on top of the salmon and rice and microwaving it, the ice cube helps to steam the rice, resulting in a fluffy texture. Once cooked, the dish is uncovered and topped with soy sauce, sriracha, and Kewpie mayonnaise. Kewpie mayo is known for its rich umami flavor and thicker consistency, making it a perfect addition to this dish.
You can customize your salmon rice bowl adding extras like kimchi, avocado, or any other ingredients you prefer. For an extra crunch, you can also wrap each bite in roasted seaweed. Don’t worry if you don’t have fresh salmon or white rice on hand; canned salmon and brown rice would work just as well.
To add an elegant touch for a special occasion, shape the salmon and rice mixture into small balls and roll them in nori sheets before serving. This will give your dish a visually appealing presentation that is sure to impress your guests.
Enjoy this delicious salmon rice bowl for a quick and easy lunch or dinner. It’s a versatile dish that can be customized to your liking and is a great way to use up leftover ingredients.
