For the Salmon:

  • 4 (4 ounce) salmon fillets

  • ¼ cup soy sauce

  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil

  • 2 tablespoons chili-garlic sauce, or more to taste

  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger

  • 1 teaspoon honey, or to taste

  • ½ teaspoon sesame oil

  • 1 medium lime, juiced

For the Bowls:

  • 2 cups cooked brown rice

  • 1 cup matchstick carrots

  • 1 cup snow peas, trimmed

  • 1 medium avocado, sliced

  • ½ medium red bell pepper, julienned

  • 3 stalks green onion, chopped

  • ¼ cup natural creamy peanut butter

  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar

  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 tablespoon water, or as needed

  • 2 teaspoons sesame seeds


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil and place salmon fillets on top.

  2. Stir soy sauce, avocado oil, chili-garlic sauce, ginger, honey, sesame oil, and lime juice together in a small bowl; brush over salmon fillets. Set remaining sauce aside for dressing.

  3. Bake salmon in the center of the preheated oven until it flakes easily with a fork, about 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool, about 15 minutes.

  4. Divide rice evenly between 4 bowls and top with salmon fillets. Distribute carrots, snow peas, avocado, and bell peppers evenly between the bowls; sprinkle green onion over top.

  5. Stir reserved soy sauce mixture with peanut butter, rice wine vinegar, and garlic powder; add water until dressing reaches desired consistency. Drizzle over the bowls and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Cook's Note:

Sesame seeds are optional.
