Makes 2 servings


  • 1 cup cooked rice
  • 1 Tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce


  • 1 ripe avocado, sliced
  • 1 cucumber, thinly sliced or peeled into ribbons
  • 2 carrots, shredded or julienned

  • 3 oz smoked salmon 


  • 3 Tbsp mayonnaise 
  • 2 Tbsp chili garlic sauce (such as Sriracha)

  1. Dissolve the sugar in the rice vinegar. Add this mixture and the soy sauce to the rice and mix thoroughly to combine. Taste and adjust for sweetness and saltiness.
  2. Place 1/2 cup of rice in the bottom of each bowl.
  3. Arrange each of the vegetables, avocado, and salmon in its own little pile on top of the rice so there's a visually appealing variety of shapes and colors.
  4. To make the mayonnaise, mix the mayo and chili sauce together and whisk vigorously to combine. Taste and adjust with either more mayo or more chili to achieve your preferred level of spiciness.
  5. Drizzle the spicy mayo over the bowl.
  6. Finish with a sprinkle of sesame seeds, green onions, or sheets of nori if desired.
