Honey Chipotle Salmon Bowl Ingredients

Salmon (skinless)

Cut the salmon into 1-inch pieces. You can use any type you like, as long as it’s skinless. Just make sure it doesn’t get overcooked! Salmon with lower fat content (like sockeye salmon) will cook faster. 

Extra virgin olive oil

Honey

Chili powder

Seasoned salt

Lawry’s is a great option! 

Rice

Choose your favorite rice for the salmon bowl. Brown rice is a fantastic option to make this a healthy salmon bowl. I also love to use my Coconut Cilantro Rice for this recipe.

Topping ideas

  • Avocado
  • Salsa
    • Pico de gallo
    • Mango salsa
    • Corn salsa
    • …pick your fav!
  • Cotija cheese
  • Cilantro
  • Corn
  • Chipotle mayo

How to Make Chipotle Salmon Bowls

1

Prepare the salmon.

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. 

Arrange the salmon on a sheet pan and evenly coat it with olive oil, honey, chili powder, and seasoned salt. Toss to combine.

2

Bake the salmon.

Bake until golden brown and cooked through. 

Tip: Want to get the salmon a little extra crispy? Broil it on high for the last couple minutes of cooking. 

3

Build your bowl!

It’s time to assemble your honey chipotle salmon bowl! Add the rice to a bowl, arrange the salmon on top, and then add your favorite toppings. 

I definitely recommend having a chipotle mayo on hand. My favorite toppings are avocado, cotija cheese, and mango salsa.

Wash the dishes. How sad.

What to Serve With Honey Chipotle Salmon Bowls

It’s super easy to customize this recipe by choosing your favorite toppings! Try out your own unique blend of flavors. PS: want to add a little extra sweetness? Drizzle on a bit of honey!

Salsa!

Salmon Bowl Meal Prep

This honey chipotle salmon bowl recipe is perfect for meal prep because leftovers reheat nicely. Simply store your salmon and rice separately from the toppings. 

Reheat in the microwave, oven, or air fryer (or enjoy your salmon cold!). Then pile on the delicious toppings! 

Plus, how cute would these salmon bowls be in little to-go containers in your fridge? Meal prep doesn’t have to be boring!

Fresh salmon is covered in a spicy, sweet glaze and cooked to tender perfection. Serve the smoky salmon over a bed of rice with an array of toppings…

Fruity salsas. Savory roasted veggies. Tangy cotija cheese. You call the shots.

Ingredients

Scale
  • 16 oz salmon, cut into 1-inch pieces (skinless) 
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • Rice for serving – I love to use my Coconut Cilantro rice for this recipe.
  • Topping ideas: avocado, salsa/pico de gallo (a mango salsa would be so good), cotija cheese, cilantro, corn/corn salsa, chipotle mayo

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Arrange the salmon on a sheet pan and evenly coat with the olive oil, honey, chili powder and season salt. Toss to combine. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through.
  2. Broil on high for a couple minutes to crisp up the salmon.
  3. Build your salmon bowl by adding the rice to a bowl, arranging the salmon on top and then topping with desired toppings. I definitely recommend having a chipotle mayo to go along with your toppings. My favorite toppings are avocado, cotija cheese and mango salsa and an extra drizzle of honey. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Use any kind of salmon you would like as long as its skinless. If using a sockeye salmon, it will cook up faster as it has a lower fat content.
