Why KJ Loves
Honey Chipotle Salmon Bowls
This is a recipe that you NEED in your life! Seriously, not to toot my own horn, but this salmon is SO good. Plus, it couldn’t be easier to toss together!
Honey Chipotle Salmon Bowl Ingredients
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
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.
- Pico de gallo
- Mango salsa
- Corn salsa
- …pick your fav!
- Cotija cheese
- Chipotle mayo
How to Make Chipotle Salmon Bowls
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.
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.
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.

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!
