Mediterranean Salmon Bowls


Last Updated on March 3, 2024

Flavorful mediterranean salmon bowls are a simple and nourishing dinner to make this week. Served with sumac onions, homemade pita chips and a feta salad.

Mediterranean Salmon Bowls

These blackened salmon bowls are truly one of my favorite dinner combinations. Pan-seared salmon is served with a fresh feta salad, homemade sumac onions and crispy pita chips. The flavors pair so well together and make for a fresh and nourishing weeknight dinner.

I topped everything with my go-to lemon vinaigrette for some added zesty flavor. You can serve this with my honey mustard smashed potatoes or mujadara (rice and lentils) for an well-rounded dinner.

This delicious meal comes together in just about 30 minutes, and is the perfect healthy dinner packed with protein, fiber and fats. The salmon comes out juicy and flavorful, and pairs so well with the other fresh flavors.

What you’ll need for these mediterranean salmon bowls

This recipe has a few difference components, but can come together easily if planned accordingly.

Sumac onions

The onions are best when they marinate for at least 30 minutes, so I suggest preparing the sumac onions first to give them time to absorb all the flavors

Homemade pita chips

Bake the pita chips next to let the oven do the work while you season the salmon and chop your salad

Blackened salmon

Prepare your homemade spice mix and season each salmon fillet. Grill each piece for about 8-9 minutes total, flipping halfway through

Feta salad

Chop the cucumbers, tomatoes and feta cheese and whisk together the dressing ingredients

Once everything is ready, assemble your bowls. I love to add a scoop of hummus to serve with the pita chips.

Prepare ahead of time

You can easily meal prep this recipe with just a few modifications. Prepare the salad and sumac onions separately, and add the lemon vinaigrette only before serving.

The salmon can be seasoned ahead of time and refrigerated, or grilled and stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

The pita chips will stay fresh and crisp in an airtight container or bag for up to 3 days.

This recipe is light yet hearty, and is packed with some of my favorite flavors. I can’t wait for you guys to try it!
