Sweet, spicy and completely addictive, the addition of sriracha can take anything from blah to amazing. Even just a touch of sriracha punches up the flavor of your favorite foods, adding a little chili, a touch of garlic, a hint of saltiness and sugar, and a tinge of vinegar to create an undeniably delicious seasoning. It’s like everything you want rolled into one single sauce.
But what really makes sriracha so addictive is its spiciness. It’s something of a unique spicy taste – unlike other super-spicy sauces or seasonings, sriracha doesn’t overwhelm your senses (or make your nose go crazy!). There’s no burn, either. And that’s why this bright red sauce is so beloved. It’s also why it’s so great mixed into a marinade, added into a vinaigrette, incorporated as a seasoning or turned into a dipping sauce.
We’re taking this beloved sauce and punching up your favorite fatty fish. Our Spicy Salmon Power Bowl brings together salmon marinated in flavors that pair perfectly with sriracha (like maple syrup, rice vinegar and ginger) and a spiced-up spin on mayo. Anyone who loves sriracha will love the balance of spicy-sweet and extra-healthy ingredients here, making this the perfect lunch or dinner to make when you’re hoping to make your meals more exciting.
Spicy Salmon Power Bowl with Sriracha Mayo
- In a medium bowl, combine marinade ingredients and add salmon. Set aside to marinate for 15 minutes.
- Meanwhile, prepare spicy mayo: To a bowl, add all ingredients and stir to combine.
- Heat a skillet on medium-high and mist with cooking spray. Remove salmon from marinade, reserving marinade. Add salmon to skillet, skin side down, for 5 minutes; turn over, adding in one-half of marinade (discard remaining). Continue to cook until salmon is just opaque and flakes easily, 3 to 5 minutes more.
- Divide rice among bowls. Drizzle with sesame oil and top with salmon, edamame and optional toppings. Serve with desired amount of spicy mayo.
