You’re about to meet the best recipe to come out of my kitchen so far this year. Yes, I know it’s only 10 days into the year, so that might not sound very impressive, but trust me on this one. You’ll be glad I shared early because I think you’ll want it on heavy rotation all year round.

One of many things that I love about living in LA is the ability to walk to work. Many would say that LA “isn’t really a place where people walk”, which is also probably why the city has such a reputation for its terrible traffic situation. Just after selling my Toyota Rav-4 before I moved from Vancouver, part of me wondered if I’d end up regretting it. Admittedly it can feel a bit limiting at times (like when I’m at my favourite garden center and have a bajillion plants to bring home), but most of the time, I feel pretty content without. I have the pleasure of being able to walk to work every day, which I love because that’s prime time for me to either prep my mind for the day ahead, or clear it so that I can enjoy a relaxing evening once I get home.

Well, I should say that I usually love those walks. But lately, they have been COLD – and not just by LA standards. As a Canadian, my tolerance for the cold is rather shameful, but even my sister who is here visiting me from Scotland agreed that the evenings feel winter jacket-worthy.

So what’s a foodie to do? Aside from living in chunky knit oversize sweaters, I’ve been cooking food that warms me from the inside out. That includes soups, chili and stews with seasonal root vegetables and warming ingredients like ginger and turmeric, but also spicy dishes. If you could see my hot sauce collection right now, you just might nominate me for an episode of Hoarders: Hot Sauce Edition.

In the spirit of staying warm and kicking the new year off with a bunch of healthy recipes, today I’ve got Sriracha Lime Salmon Power Bowls for you. Think delicious, rich, spicy salmon, tons of veggies, buttery soft avocado and fresh herbs. If you’re paleo or doing a Whole30 you can serve everything on top of greens and cauliflower rice, or if grains are a-ok with you, I recommend short grain brown rice. Whatever you choose, these babies are deeeelicious!

Description

Spicy and savoury with a twist of lime, these Sriracha Lime Salmon Power Bowls are packed with protein, essential fatty acids and plenty of vitamins and minerals to support overall health, mood and energy. They’re also paleo, Whole30-friendly, sugar free and gluten free!


Ingredients

For the salmon:

  • 2 raw skin-on salmon fillets, about 130g each
  • 1 tbsp EACH toasted sesame oil, coconut aminos (or tamari), lime juice and minced/pureed fresh ginger
  • 1-2 tsp sriracha or hot sauce of choice

For the rest:

  • 3 cups shredded greens of choice
  • 2 cups cauliflower rice or 1 1/2 cups short grain wild brown rice*, + 2 tsp freshly squeezed lime juice + 1 tsp coconut aminos
  • 1 package seaweed salad (~1oz dried seaweed) rehydrated in ~1/4 cup warm water. I use SeaVegi by Seasnax.
  • 1 tsp EACH toasted sesame oil + lime juice
  • 1/2 ripe pitted avocado, diced
  • 1 small watermelon radish, peeled and diced
  • fresh torn cilantro + sesame seeds, to garnish

Instructions

Make the salmon:

  1. In a resealable bag, combine all ingredients for the salmon marinade. Once mixed, add the salmon, seal the bag and leave to marinate for at least 30 mins.
  2. Preheat the oven broiler or grill to high.
  3. If broiling, line a baking dish with foil and place the salmon fillets on top, skin side down.
  4. Broil the salmon for about 10 minutes (or 15, if your fillets are very thick). If grilling, grill for about 4 minutes flesh-down, then 6 minutes skin-side down. When finished, the fish should be flaky throughout.

Make the rest:

  1. Chop all remaining ingredients as indicated above. Arrange the greens + cauliflower rice in 2 bowls.
  2. After soaking the seaweed in water to rehydrate, drain off any excess liquid. Toss the seaweed in 1 tsp each toasted sesame oil and lime juice. Layer into the bowls, followed by the salmon.
  3. Follow with the avocado, watermelon radish, cilantro and sesame seeds. Serve immediately.

Notes

Note: If using wild brown rice the recipe will no longer be paleo or Whole30-compliant, but feel free to pick whatever works best for you!

    1. Hi there! Since nori has a crispy consistency, you might want to serve it on the side instead of in the bowls as it’ll get quite soggy when wet. It doesn’t rehydrate like seaweed salad does, but II think it’d be delicious served on the side as crisps!
