Broiled Salmon Bites Bowl
This new spin on a poke bowl with broiled salmon and pickled cucumbers is delicious and great to make for the week for quick dinners or lunches!
- 1 8oz wild caught salmon or steel head trout cut into cubes with the skin on
- 1 tbsp organic miso paste
- 1 tbsp organic maple syrup
- 1/2 tbsp tamari or soy sauce
- 1 tsp toasted sesame seed oil depends on how much sesame you like this can be strong depending on your brand so start with 1/2 tsp.
- 1 whole garlic clove grated or minced
Spicy Cucumber Salad
- 1 large Japanese cucumber or seedless cucumber chopped 1/2 inch thick at an angle
- 1 pinch sea salt
- 1 tbsp rice vinegar
- 1 tbsp soy sauce
- 1/2 tsp toasted sesame seed oil
- 1 pinch Korean chili flakes or red pepper flakes could use chili onion crunch if you have it
- 1/2 tbsp maple syrup
- 2 whole scallions cut or chopped to the white parts
- 1/2 tbsp sriracha sauce you can always add more depending on your spice level!
- 2 tbsp homemade mayo or the one you like to use
- 1 cup cooked rice I use organic brown basmati
- 2 tbsp cilantro chopped for topping
- 4 whole Hakurei turnips shaved with the mandolin thin or sliced thin
- kimchi optional for a topper
- Furikaki optional for a topper - can be found at trader joes (seaweed sesame seeds)
- Rinse and prepare your rice. I usually do this ahead of time and store in the fridge to save time. If you haven't checked out the Par-Boil method that is the method I use.
- Pat dry your salmon / trout and use sharp kitten scissors or a knife to cut into 1- 1 1/2 inch cubes with the skin on. Set aside while you make your marinade
Miso Maple Marinade
- Mix together the Miso, Maple Syrup, soy sauce, sesame seed oil, chili flakes and minced garlic.
- Add the salmon bites and stir to coat.
- Let sit while you prepare the cucumber salad. If you are not using it right away you can store in the fridge until later. I haven't stored it for more than 5hrs.
- Turn your broiler on High
Spicy Cucumber Salad
- Chop your cucumbers and sprinkle with sea salt set aside
- Whisk together the rice vinegar, soy sauce, sesame seed oil, maple syrup and scallions
- Pour over the cucumbers and stir together. This can sit while you make the salmon and your bowl to enhance the flavor.
- Whisk together your sriracha and mayo
Broil Salmon Bites
- Place on a parchment paper or pan that you coat with a little avocado oil (higher smoke point)
- Watch them they only take 3-5 minutes
- Add in your rice
- shave or slice your turnips could do radish or carrots too!
- cucumber salad with some of the excess marinade
- add your hot and crispy salmon bites
- add your kimchi if you have it
- top with your spicy mayo, cilantro and furikaki
