  • 2 Tbsp honey 
  • 2 garlic cloves, smashed and minced 
  • Juice from 1 lime 
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil 
  • 2 tsp. grated ginger 
  • 2 salmon filets, cubed 
  • 1 cup brown rice, cooked 
  • 2 stalks green onion, chopped 
  • ¼ cup pistachios, roughly chopped

Instructions

For the salmon bowl

  1. Prepare marinade. In a bowl, whisk soy sauce, honey, garlic, lime juice, olive oil and ginger. Reserve 3 tablespoons of marinade. 
  2. In a flat dish or bowl, place salmon cubes in the marinade. Allow the fish to marinate for 20-30 minutes while you prepare the other ingredients and marinate the cucumbers (recipe below). 
  3. Preheat the oven with a broiler. Place the marinated salmon cubes on a foil-lined sheet pan. Place on the top rack under the broiler for about 7 minutes or until cooked to desired texture/temperature. Drizzle reserved marinade over salmon. 
  4. Serve salmon over brown rice. Top with green onion, pistachios and bell pepper. Add marinated cucumber. Drizzle any reserved marinade from marinated cucumber along with optional spicy mayo, if desired. 

Marinated cucumber

  1. In a bowl, whisk together ponzu sauce, lemongrass paste, chili garlic sauce and sesame seeds. Add sliced cucumbers and combine until cucumbers are coated in marinade. Let cucumber sit for a few minutes, and repeat tossing to marinate. Serve with salmon bowl.
