The nutty wild rice blend is the perfect base to these salmon bowls. I prepare the wild rice as instructed on the package, then mix it with chopped kale. Serve it with rainbow radish, avocado, and the perfectly baked salmon.
The homemade maple tahini sauce is one of my go-to condiments to elevate my meals. I’ve been making it for years to serve with roasted cabbage, and love it as a sauce over salmon and rice bowls.
What you’ll need for these maple tahini salmon bowls
This recipe has a few difference components, but can come together easily if planned accordingly.
I use a wild rice blend made up of a mix of white, brown, wild and red rice for a hearty and nutty flavor. I prepare the rice as instructed on the package, then turn off the fire and mix in the chopped kale to let it soften from the steam.
Homemade maple tahini sauce
Tahini, coconut aminos, maple syrup and a few simple flavorings are blended together to make the creamy maple tahini sauce.
Salmon fillets are seasoned lightly with salt & pepper, then brushed with some of the maple tahini sauce. They get topped with tri-color sesame seeds and baked until flakey.
Once everything is ready, assemble your bowls. I love to serve these with a side of radish, avocado and microgreens.
Prepare ahead of time
This recipe can easily double as meal prep with a few modifications. Prepare the rice and maple tahini sauce and store them separately.
You can season the salmon ahead of time and refrigerate it then bake it when ready to serve, or bake it and store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
