After writing my latest cookbook, Paleo Power Bowls, I’ve been asked multiple times if I’m *so over* eating food out of bowls.

The answer is a resounding nay. I absolutely love my bowl life. There’s just no denying the satisfaction I get out of enjoying a HUGE bowl of veggies and meat while curled up on the couch. I can’t imagine a life any other way. 😉 Bowl life forever!

I’m almost ashamed to admit how frequently I eat this exact recipe. *Almost.* But this bowl of nutritious YUM is so nourishing that I just had to share my personal go-to.

It’s Low-FODMAP, which means it’s extra easy for my digestive system to process. Perfect for those like me with IBS or digestive issues.

The salmon portion of this recipe is just so stinking simple. All we do is sprinkle salmon with sea salt and paprika and broil it in the oven.

The result is perfect crispy salmon that is still so moist and tender on the inside. If I had to choose one way of preparing salmon for the rest of my life, this would be the way!

The vegetable and rice portion of this recipe is simply a mashup of whatever sounds good to you. I’m always a bit fan of broccoli, carrot, zucchini and spinach. I flavor it all up with fresh ginger and coconut aminos, because momma knows.

Recipe Adaptations:

  • Change up the vegetables according to what’s in season and what you’re craving. Bok choy, bell pepper, onion, garlic, cauliflower, leek, cabbage, etc. are awesome!
  • Get creative with the seasonings on the salmon and the veggies you use to make this meal one worth repeating over and over without becoming tired of it.
  • If you don’t follow a Low-FODMAP diet, feel free to add onion and garlic – they will add even more flavor to the dish!

You can even take this bowl a step farther by drizzling it with Paleo teriyaki sauce, red curry sauce, wasabi sauce, or any sauce that tickles your fancy.

Instructions

Broil the Salmon:

  1. Place oven on high broil setting. Lightly coat a casserole dish with avocado oil and place the salmon fillets in the dish. Sprinkle with sea salt and paprika.
  2. Place on the the rack that is second to the top of the oven (note: do not put casserole dish on the top rack. If fat from the salmon hits the heating elements, it could start an oven fire.). Broil 12 to 15 minutes, or until salmon is crispy and cooked through (cook time will depend upon thickness of fish).

Prepare the Ginger Vegetables:

  1. While the salmon is cooking, prepare the vegetables. Heat the oil over medium in a large wok or cast iron skillet. Add carrots and broccoli and stir. Cover and cook 2 to 3 minutes, until vegetables begin to soften.
  2. Remove cover and add zucchini, ginger, sriracha, sea salt, and coconut aminos. Stir well and cover. Cook until vegetables have reached desired done-ness, about 3 to 5 minutes. 
  3. Add the spinach, cover, and cook until wilted, about 1 minute. Stir in the cooked rice and continue cooking until rice is warm. Taste veggies and rice for flavor and add more sea salt, sriracha or ginger to taste.
  4. Divide the rice and veggies between 3 or 4 bowls and serve with salmon on top with a sprinkle of green onion.

This is THE BEST!! I thought your salmon curry was my favorite way to prepare salmon, but this is even better! We grilled the salmon; it was awesome!

literally AMAZING!! as a beginner cook i’m always looking to try new recipes, the only thing i added was some sweet chili sweet to the salmon while it broiled which made it more delicious. even my mom gave it a 10/10 and she’s so picky whenever i cook 🙌🏾
