Honey Gochujang Salmon Bowl

Servings: 4


Marinade / Sauce

  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp gochujang
  • 1 ½ tbsp honey
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp arrowroot powder or cornstarch
  • ¼ tsp pepper

Salmon Bowl

  • 4 pieces of salmon (5-6oz each)
  • 1 cup rice, uncooked
  • 1 cup edamame, shelled, frozen
  • 2 carrots, grated
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 2 green onions, green parts, sliced
  • Sesame seeds


  1. Mix together all marinade ingredients, then pour HALF of it into a gallon ziplock bag. Place the salmon in the bag, toss to coat evenly, then refrigerate for 30-60 minutes to let the flavors infuse.
  2. While the salmon sits, pour the rest of the marinade into a small saucepan and bring it to a simmer over low-medium heat. Stir frequently, scraping the bottom so it doesn’t burn, until it thickens up enough to be drizzled (about 5 minutes).
  3. Cooking the salmon: Heat the oven to 400F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the salmon (skin-side-down) on the parchment paper. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until salmon is cooked through.
  4. Cook the rice and heat the edamame, as instructed on the packages.
  5. To assemble the bowls, place some rice on the bottom, followed by edamame, shredded carrots, and avocado. Place the salmon on top and drizzle with the sauce. Sprinkle with green onions and sesame seeds. Enjoy!
