This quick and easy Sushi-inspired Spicy Canned Salmon Rice Bowl makes an easy high protein, budget-friendly, 5-minute lunch, great for meal prep!
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. More canned salmon recipes you may like are these Waffled Salmon Cakes, or swap the tuna for salmon in this Mayo-Less Tuna Pasta Salad.

Here are the ingredients for the salmon salad:
Below is everything in the 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.

Omg this is going to be my new go to lunch recipe!!! It is soooo good!!!
Isn’t it!!!!
So easy. So good. So filling.
Really happy to add this to my bring-your-lunch-to-work rotation!
When I go to track this with the link in my WW app the light Mayo is listed as Mayo instead of light so the points are not correct. Just wanted to let you know but thank you for providing a link to the app
Thanks adjusted!
When I did it, the sriracha came up as 2 tablespoons instead of teaspoons and added an extra point.
Is this entire recipe considered one bowl? I’m wondering for food logging purposes
Such a simple, delicious, quick lunch!! I bought the seasoning just for this recipe and it really makes the bowl feel special and sushi-ish 🙂 Added pickled red onions, avocado, and minced bell pepper. Will be keeping this on the lunch rotation!
Made this for lunch today and it was delicious. Perfect quick and easy lunch. I’ll definitely be adding this to my rotation. 
Made this tonight for myself for dinner. I used spicy chili sesame oil (from TJs) instead of sriracha because I prefer it’s taste. Also used zucchini instead of cukes cause that’s what I had. Added avocado. I mention all these changes to show how versatile this awesome recipe is! Thanks Gina!
I didn’t have scallions so I left them out and added a little dried minced onion, but this was still a delicious easy meal! Good flavors and perfect amount of spice. Used a minute rice cup so it was even easier – definitely going to keep this in rotation for easy one-person meals!
I love this!! It’s so good and easy to make!
Gonna have to try this one! 🐟 think it’d be good with some added avocado?
How do you discard the bones the in salmon?
My canned salmon never has bones
I had this same question today so I called my mom. She said just to scrape off the skin and as many of the bones as you can. The backbones are the ones you definitely want to get. It’s okay if you miss a few rib bones because they are so soft. I also heaped on sesame seeds. I hoped the crunch would keep me from noticing/being grossed out if I came across a bone – it worked.
If you just mash them up, you won’t notice them at all…and they add a lot of calcium!
I wanted to make this today but only had shrimp and quinoa on hand. Still so good and super easy. I plan to make it as directed next week for lunch planning!
This would probably be good in a wrap too.
So delicious! I just made this for a quick brunch because I had all the ingredients on hand, including the TJ’s frozen brown rice. It took me just a little over 5 minutes…super easy, and soooo good! I added some avocado on top, and it was perfect! Thank you for such a quick, yummy recipeM
So glad you enjoyed it!
This looks great! I want to incorporate more salmon in my diet; but being a single-person household, buying big pieces of salmon just doesn’t happen.
This sounds delicious, but I’m a total lightweight when it comes to spicy- any possible siracha substitution suggestions? 😬
soy sauce : )
Any idea how many WW SP this is?
This is really good! Great lunch option. Thank you so much.
