Teriyaki Salmon Sushi Bowls Recipe-4 Servings

3 Salmon Fillets

2 Cups of Sushi Rice

1 Box or Bag Of Spinach

1 Tbsp Sesame Oil

1 Cup Teriyaki Sauce

2-3 Sheets Nori cut into ribbons (optional) 2-3 Tbsp Sesame Seeds 4-5 Scallions Sliced

1-2 Avocados Sliced

(This recipe can be made for 1 or 100-Just adjust the portions to your size)

-If you have time you can marinate your salmon in the teriyaki sauce for a few hours ahead of time, but this is not necessary.

-Cook sushi rice per provided instructions.

-Toast nori and sesame seeds in a skillet for 3-4 minutes stirring occasionally-cook til sesame seeds start to turn brown & set aside.

-Steam spinach in sesame oil and 2 tbsps water covered for 2-3 minutes-until wilted. Remove from heat. Sprinkle with salt when done.

-Preheat oven to broil. Put salmon on baking sheet lined with foil. Baste salmon with teriyaki sauce and cook for 2-3 minutes. Take out baste again and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Salmon should be about 145 degrees but it will continue to cook once out of the oven.

*If teriyaki sauce is not thick enough, put in saucepan with brown sugar and heat until thickens.

Assembly Time! Rice first, then add spinach, then nori mixture, salmon, sprinkle with scallions and add in your avocados. A drizzle of siracha or siracha mayo on top would be delicious too!

Enjoy :)

Gardeners Tip: If you don't enjoy nori, try toasting sesame seeds instead!
