VIRAL TikTok Salmon Rice Bowl

Updated: Dec 29, 2022

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.

Hope you enjoy,
