And Now For the Teriyaki Salmon Rice Bowl
I just LOVED how easily this came together.
We have our house on the market right now so dinner prep has to be quick, easy and minimal just in case I get a call for a showing.
This Teriyaki Salmon Rice Bowl with Avocado and Pickled Radish made little to no mess - I had one chopping board, a baking tray, and the instant pot for the rice.
The kids loved putting together their own bowls and they ate the whole dang lot which is the ultimate compliment in my books.
Plus I had everything on hand which made it just perfect.
How Do I Get The Kids Involved?
I was even able to get the kids involved, which always makes it more likely that they will gobble up whatever food you are offering.
After the first 10 minutes in the oven, you take the salmon out and brush it liberally with the teriyaki sauce. I set the kids up with their little brushes and let them go to town, which they thought was absolutely fantastic.
Just be careful as the baking tray will be hot.
Mine have been in the kitchen long enough to know not to touch, but make sure yours know the drill, or simply transfer the partially cooked fish to another baking tray for this part.
You can also get the kids to:
- add the rice vinegar to the sliced radishes and give it a quick stir;
- slice the avocado once you have taken the skin off. Because it's so soft they won't need a sharp knife for this part;
- assemble their own bowls.

6 Ingredient Teriyaki Salmon Rice Bowl with Avocado and Pickled Radish
- ½ cup (about 4 or 5) radishes thinly sliced
- 6 teaspoon seasoned rice vinegar divided
- 1 lb salmon cut into 4 4 ounce fillets
- ¼ cup teriyaki sauce
- 4 cups cooked rice
- 2 avocados peeled, pitted, and thinly sliced
- salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat the oven to 400F
- In a small mixing bowl, stir together the radishes and 2 teaspoons of rice vinegar. Season lightly with salt. Let sit, stirring a few times, for at least 20 minutes.
- Meanwhile, arrange the salmon fillets on a baking sheet. Season liberally with salt and pepper. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until opaque. Remove from the oven and brush thoroughly with the teriyaki sauce. Return to the oven and cook for an additional 5 to 6 minutes, until cooked through.
- Divide the rice evenly among four bowls. Drizzle each with 1 teaspoon of the remaining rice vinegar, and season with salt. Top with one-quarter of the avocado and one-quarter of the pickled radishes.
- Using a fork, flake the salmon fillets one at a time, transferring the salmon from each fillet to one of the prepared rice bowls, and serve.

My favorite kitchen hack is using the BBQ mats in my cookie sheets as non-stick liners. I have the four ingredient cookbook and I would love to have the 5 ingredient cookbook! Thank you so much for the chance!
Ooh good idea, saves on wasting parchment paper (which has gotten super expensive all of a sudden)! Good luck!!
Looks delicious! Favorite cooking hack...cook once, eat twice (or more). I almost always cook enough for something to last two meals, so I don't have to cook from start every night. Our favorite is bbqing meat and reusing it for several meals throughout the week.
I need to get better at that, I hate eating the same thing more than one night in a row but I could always freeze the rest and eat next week!

Thank you so much for the wonderful post about my book! I am so glad you and your kids enjoyed this recipe. My kids adore it as well.
They loved it, I had to add it to the meal plan for this week as well 🙂
Oh my goodness, this looks and sounds delicious. I still love an oldie but goodie! I brew fresh coffee and then I pour them into ice cube trays, cute ones of course, and then I pop them into my iced coffee or I throw them in with some almond milk and make a latte!
I love this idea, I am going to have to try it out! I do have some cute ice cute trays that need some use 🙂

I love planning out a whole week of meals so that I can get everything I need in one weekly grocery trip, and then prep ahead when I have the time as much as I can!
I am always on the ball when I prep ahead for the week, when I don't everything falls apart and I end up making the most random dinners!
I learned to to throw all citrus peels and lemon halves in garbage disposal. It’s makes the whole kitchen smell good.
I do this too, especially when our lemon tree is in overdrive, it is such a good way to make the sink smell pretty and prevent as much waste going into the landfill!!
This sounds so good! Like a spicy Salmon sushi roll in a bowl!
Kitchen hack: I like to cook a package of 6 chicken breasts for the week and shred or slice it for soups, dinners and salads all week.
Ha, that's exactly how I marketed it to the kids (without the spicy). They gobbled up their 'sushi bowls' without a complaint. That's a great hack, would make lunch prep a whole lot quicker.

I like to chop or slice ingredients for multiple meals at one time. It saves me work and prep time!
Me too! When I know we are going to have a busy week I like to chop a bunch of veg at the start of the week and then throw them into various meals throughout.
