This easy Salmon Rice Bowl is fast and easy, made with just a few ingredients! Salmon salad using canned salmon is the star of the dish served over brown rice (I love frozen brown rice from Trader Joes) with diced cucumbers, sriracha, scallions, and furikake or nori. I am always trying to share new, quick lunch ideas that don’t take too much time to make. Earlier this week I posted an avocado quinoa salad as a vegetarian lunch option. Like tuna, canned salmon is a great pantry staple for protein, and it’s budget-friendly.

Salmon Rice Bowl Ingredients

Here are the ingredients for the salmon salad:

  • Salmon: I use canned wild salmon in water because it’s so convenient. If you prefer making your own or using leftover salmon, that works too.
  • Sauce: Light mayo and sriracha with a pinch of salt combine for a creamy, spicy sauce.
  • Scallions: Mix the whites of the scallions in with the salmon.

Below is everything in the rice bowl:

  • Brown Rice: To speed up this recipe, I use Trader Joe’s frozen brown rice, so the whole dish comes together in five minutes. It’s such a great timesaver! You can also make your own rice or use leftover.
  • Cucumber: I like the crunch from the Persian cucumbers and you don’t need to peel them because the skin is thin, so it’s even quicker to prep! If you want more veggies, carrots, bell peppers, and avocado would also be good.
  • Scallions: Top the salad with the greens of the scallions.
  • Furikake or Nori: Sprinkle nori or furikake over the rice bowl. Nori is dried seaweed that you can crumble over the salad. Furikake is a Japanese seasoning consisting of “sesame seeds, seaweeds, herbs, fish flakes, and salt.” You can buy it on Amazon if it’s unavailable at your local supermarket.

How to Meal Prep Salmon Salad Rice Bowl

This healthy salmon rice bowl is really easy to make. There’s very little prep if you use canned salmon and frozen rice since the scallions and cucumber are the only veggies to chop. You can double or quadruple the recipe for meal prep if you want leftovers for lunches, which will hold in the fridge for up to 4 days.

  1. I have canned pink salmon, but had a craving for smoked salmon. I used that and it is so good! No need for adding salt. I will use it with the canned next time. Great recipe!

  2. I love this recipe. It’s in constant rotation! Is the WW points with the rice? Or just the salmon mixture alone?

  3. Hi! How is this recipe 2 points when 3/4 cup of rice is 4 points? Any help understanding this is appreciated!!

  4. First try at brown rice and it turned out ! A delicious bowl , filling and so few WW points . Perfect go to lunch .
