As we can tell from the recipes on this blog I love rice. It is just as universal as a potato; it can be breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Due to being in the interrum before the new year, grocery shopping is really one of the last things I want to do. In my house, I never fail to have rice and some sort of vegetable on hand. That is where these rice bowls really come in handy. Past-Hannah picked up a salmon filet at ALDI [she was thinking ahead] so I decided these spicy salmon airfryer bowls would be the perfect week-night meal. Being that it is only me, it also makes the perfect work-day lunch.
1 Salmon Filet
1/4 Cup Soy Sauce
1 TBSP Honey, I used Hot Honey, but use whatever you have
Start with a small bowl and combine soy sauce + honey + sriracha + rice wine vinegar + garlic + ginger and mix well. Place salmon in the bowl skin side up. Let marinate for at least an hour. Once done, remove from the bowl and pat dry. Cut the salmon into bite-sized pieces.
Preheat the air fryer to 350F. Either line with parchment paper or add a little olive oil to prevent sticking. Cook in batches if you need to, frying for about 8 minutes.
While the salmon cooks prep your toppings.
Once the salmon is done, build your bowl!
Staring with rice + a little extra soy sauce and sriracha + cucumber + avocado + salmon + kimchi + cream cheese + Sichuan chili crisps [my new obsession, they aren’t wrong when they say you can put it on everything].
This burger is created after I was torn between breakfast for dinner or a hamburger. I decided to combine them for the best of both worlds. The burger turned into an absolute monster, featuring avocado, a hashbrown patty, bacon, and a fried egg. I would not recommend this burger if you’re looking for a ‘light’ meal. I have no regrets about it, hell I’d serve it with a Bloody Mary if I could. This recipe is just for one, so modify it as needed if making for more!
Hamburger patty [ I made this from a pre-made patty my mom gave me, can always make your own from ground beef]
Half an Avocado, sliced
1 Hashbrown Patty
1 Slice of Bacon
1 Slice Cheddar Cheese
Salt & Pepper
Let’s Get Cooking
To get started, cook your hashbrown patty per your preference, I like to do it in the air fryer, but you can bake it in the oven as well. Cook per package directions. Cook your bacon in a pan to your desired doneness, I like mine a little bit chewy but to each their own. Remove the bacon from the pan and place cooked bacon on paper towels. Place the pan back on the stove as we will cook our patty using the same pan.
Form your patty, or if you are using a pre-made one, salt and pepper on both sides. Cook the patty to your desired doneness, I prefer med-rare, so about 6 minutes each side. Remove the burger from heat and fry your egg in the same pan. Add extra olive oil if needed.
Toast your buns and now it’s time to build.
Bottom bun + sliced avocado + hashbrown + bacon + burger + cheese + fried egg + top bun
Theres something about sourdough bread and avocado that makes breakfast 100% times better. This is a super easy breakfast that will impress your whole family, or cat, I’m not judging! You obviously don’t need to make your own sourdough bread specifically for this recipe, but if you have some around the house UTILIZE IT!
Sourdough Bread, toasted/ or whatever bread you have
Salt + Pepper
Let’s Get Cookin’
Another at home recipe that I did and obviously didn’t start writing it down until it was too late, but here we are anyway.
Cut your bread, or if your fancy and it’s already sliced, place in the toaster and toast to desired doneness.
Halve the avocado and place in a small bowl. Add in the salt + pepper + lime juice and mash until mixed well.
Place about 1 TBSP to 1/2 TBSP in a pan and heat to med-low. Whisk eggs in a bowl. Pour into pan and turn the heat down to low. Frequently push the eggs around the pan as they begin to fold. Cook until they are solid. Finish off with salt + pepper.
Take the toasted bread and spread the avocado mash over top, place the avocado over top or on the side whatever you prefer, I’m not going to tell you how to eat your eggs.
I have gotten slightly behind on blog posts, due to finals week, adding more to my work schedule, and deleting 2 weeks worth of content on my camera, but that does not mean that I’ve stopped cooking! So I am getting back into the swing of things with one of my new favorite summer recipes that is so easy and satisfying!
1/2 TBSP Sushi Vinegar
1/4 Cup Mayo
2 TBSP Sriracha
Let’s Get Cooking
This recipe is kind of like ordering at chipotle. You make it how you want it!
First, cook the sushi rice per the package instructions. Once it’s done, put into a separate bowl and add about 1/2 TBSP of sushi vinegar. I love the flavor of the vinegar so sometimes I add more into the rice.
While your waiting for the rice to cool, combine 1/4 Cup mayo + 2 TBSP Sriracha, if you want to up the heat feel free to add more sriracha! Toss the imitation crab into the Sriracha mayo.
Prep the other ingredients that you want to add in the poke bowl. Thinly cut the cucumber and dice the avocado. If you want to add carrots or radishes feel free to cut those bad boys up too!
To serve: place the rice in a bowl, add in the toppings & enjoy!
