Salmon lovers, salmon skeptics… gather round, all of you.
This is not your ordinary salmon. It is salmon that’s been given a delicious and aggressive treatment of sweet and smoky spices, which then gets broiled (fast! easy!) which results in a lightly crunchy outer layer, which conveniently mixes-and-matches with that buttery, silky, lime-zesty, sweet and juicy mango avocado salsa. It’s equal parts super pretty and not fancy, which is why we just pile a scoop of each on hot steamy rice and don’t get too precious about it. This is the bowl life.
You might be saying, nah, I don’t really like salmon, and honestly I can respect that because salmon is salmon sometimes.
But also: you haven’t had this salmon yet. You are about to be changed. Seriously. I would just like to say, it’s an honor and a privilege to be a part of your conversion experience.
FIRST STOP – MANGO SALSA:
This takes about ten minutes. It’s just a chop and mix situation.
Bring your self-control because otherwise this will be gone before the salmon hits the table.
HERE COMES THE BBQ SALMON:
Salmon. Spice rub.
20 MINUTES LATER – BBQ SALMON BOWLS!
And that’s all.
Could you add other veggies and things to the bowl OKAY YES of course you could. That’s the whole point of bowls!
But even if this was all you had, it would be more than enough.
May your rice be hot, your salmon be smokey, sweet, and just-right flakey, and your mango salsa be extra sweet and limey! ♡
I got this recipe from my friend Jessica’s cookbook (The Pretty Dish*) and I adjusted just slightly based on what I had in the kitchen already, and wowza. Salty, sweet, ultra fresh, and buttery without butter. Credit to the queen!
