Dan and I love a good and healthy bowl, and when salmon is a part of it, we are perfectly satisfied. When we made these salmon rice bowls, we were so amazed by the outcome! It was definitely a meal that was a group effort. Dan handled the salmon and rice, and I took on the sauce and veggies. In no time, this scrumptious rice bowl was ready for us to devour! I was so impressed with how the salmon turned out on the stovetop in a skillet, and realized that cooking it this way is a speedy and delicious game changer. Of course, I was also very excited by the sauce – one of our favorite staples to enjoy with bowls. With all of our efforts put together, these incredible salmon rice bowls were born.

Besides the amazing salmon on top, one of my favorite things about this rice bowl is the mouth watering and creamy sauce. I will admit that this sauce was recreated from one of my favorite places to eat in college. Dan and I met my freshman year of college at Chico State. One of our favorite dates was to visit a place that made fun and inventive teas. Tea Bar was our go-to place for a refreshing drink but also for lunch or dinner. Our staple at tea bar was to get a rice bowl with a choice of meat and plenty of creamy teriyaki sauce on the side. When we both left Chico, we would constantly crave these bowls and that addicting sauce. The minute I recreated it at home for our zoodle rice bowls, my life was changed! It is now the sauce we love to make and reminisce about the good old days in college.
If you want a dinner that is healthy, fun and delicious, then this is it! Admittedly, it seems difficult to make at first. However, it really is a fast and really simple dish! If you have a helper in the kitchen like I did, it will be ready so quickly! Make this ahead of time for a tasty lunch or enjoy it as a fast, weeknight dinner. You will love every simple and fresh bite!
