I'm not against animal protein, but I am in favor of consuming it in a responsible, environmentally friendly and economical way. This sushi bowl accomplishes that in delicious fashion. Instead of serving each person a big 8 oz. hunk of salmon, we'll use one 8 oz. portion of salmon to divide up between the individual bowls. Then we'll load up on lots of yummy veggies and healthy carbs for a very satisfying and healthy meal. Don't be afraid of the long list of ingredients, with a little meal prep. on the weekend, this meal can come together in a matter of minutes.
3 cups brown rice, cooked
4 tbsp raw, apple cider vinegar

These can be served warm or cold. They are great to pack for lunch.
Add red pepper flakes, if you'd like some heat.
Salmon can be cooked at 400 for 20 minutes. Season with salt, pepper and a squeeze of lime. You can also use another fish of choice.
I cook the fish for sushi bowls to keep them more economical; however, occasionally we splurge and buy sushi grade fish for a raw fish Poke Bowl.
On a busy weekend night when no one eats at the same time, I put some of these bowls in the fridge with sauce on the side.
This makes for a fun buffet entertaining meal. Place all the components in serving dishes on buffet and let guests assemble their own bowls.
