I'm sure you've seen Emily Mariko's viral TikTok, making what has to be one of the best-looking, healthy lunches I have ever seen. But, if you're like me, you have wanted a written out recipe to recreate this leftover hack.

Also, as I usually do, I have made a few of my own dietetic edits to this recipe, making it even healthier and a little more convenient for me and my kitchen!

  • 1 salmon fillet

  • Microwaveable rice

  • 1-2 tbsp Soy sauce

  • 1-2 tbsp Mayonnaise (full fat/light what ever you fancy)

  • 2 tsp Siracha

  • Scallions

  • Veg to bulk out the meal that little bit more (use whatever you have in the fridge - for me this was red peppers and beetroot)

  • 1/3 Avocado as a topping

  • Optional toasted sesame seeds to garnish


  • Cook the salmon whatever way you like. For me this was in the oven at ~180 degrees for approx 25-35 mins. I like to let my salmon get quite crispy.

  • Microwave your rice (super quick and easy)

  • Optional: For the veg I briefly stir - fried these in a pan but depending on what veg you are using and how much time you have this step is optional

  • Mash up the salmon with the rice, veg, soya sauce, mayonnaise and siracha.

  • Sprinkle with the sesame seeds and add the avocado on top.

Now sit back and enjoy!

I love this recipe as I find it very, very simple and very, very quick!!! And it also gets in my omega 3s for the week from the oily fish.

Have you happened to come across Emily Mariko's famous TikTok video showcasing a mouth-watering and healthy lunch? If you're anything like me, you've been longing for a detailed recipe to recreate this delicious leftover hack. To suit my dietary needs, I've made a few modifications to the original recipe, making it even healthier and more convenient for me to prepare in my kitchen!

The Salmon Rice Bowl from the viral TikTok video is the perfect recipe for a quick, healthy meal. To make this scrumptious dish, you'll need a salmon fillet, microwaveable rice, soy sauce, mayonnaise, sriracha, scallions, vegetables of your choice, a third of an avocado, and optional sesame seeds for garnish. Begin by cooking the salmon in the oven or any other preferred method until it's crispy. Microwave the rice and stir-fry the vegetables in a pan, if desired. Mix the salmon with the rice, vegetables, soy sauce, mayonnaise, and sriracha. Top it off with avocado and sesame seeds and enjoy!

I adore this recipe because it's incredibly straightforward and fast to prepare, and it provides me with the necessary omega-3 fatty acids from oily fish. I hope you enjoy this dish as much as I do!
