Ricardo’s skillet-seared salmon is the perfect addition to a rice bowl


3/4 lb (340 g) skinless salmon fillet, cut into 4 pieces

3 tbsp sesame seeds

1 tbsp (15 mL) vegetable oil

Spicy Mayonnaise

6 tbsp (90 mL) mayonnaise

2 tsp (10 mL) soy sauce

1 tsp (5 mL) Sriracha sauce

1 tsp pickled ginger, finely chopped


2 cups (170 g) red cabbage, thinly sliced

1 1/2 cups (220 g) shelled edamame, blanched

4 cups (600 g) cooked sushi rice (see note)

2 Lebanese cucumbers, thinly sliced

1 ripe avocado, diced

1 sheet nori seaweed, thinly sliced (optional)

Lime wedges, as desired


In a shallow dish, coat the salmon with the sesame seeds.

In a non-stick skillet over high heat, sear the salmon in the oil for 2 minutes on each side or until the salmon is cooked rare. Season with salt and pepper. Drain on paper towels and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Spicy Mayonnaise

In a bowl, combine all the ingredients.


In another bowl, combine the cabbage, edamame and 1/4 cup (60 ml) of the spicy mayonnaise. Toss to coat and adjust the seasoning.

Divide the rice among four bowls and top with the cabbage mixture, cucumbers, avocado and salmon. Drizzle with the remaining spicy mayonnaise. Sprinkle with the nori, if desired, and serve with lime wedges.


For 4 cups of cooked sushi rice, cook 1 1/2 cups of raw Calrose rice. While still hot, season with a mixture of 3 tbsp (45 mL) of rice vinegar and 1 tbsp of sugar, if desired.

Serves 4.
