Hot Honey Salmon Bowls

Jump to Recipe

In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve been experimenting a little with hot honey. This ingredient has proven to be quite versatile. It’s amazing on chicken for sure, and now salmon, roasted on a bed of rice, paired with broccoli and served with some avocado salsa. If you are looking for a complete meal, and a different way to enjoy salmon, try these hot honey salmon bowls.

Start by placing your salmon chunks and broccoli pieces on a sprayed baking sheet. Toss with olive oil and roast for about 10 minutes. While the salmon and broccoli roast, make your hot honey.

To a pan, add your honey and spices. Cook at medium heat, stirring constantly, until the honey starts to bubble. Let it bubble, while stirring, for a few minutes, so the flavors meld together.

Remove your salmon from the oven and toss with some of the hot honey, leaving extra. After you’ve given it a good toss, return to the oven and broil for about 3 minutes, until the salmon gets a little crispy.

Before serving, make your rice as directed. You can also pair this with avocado feta salsa. Be sure to make a lot of this, as you will eat it with this salmon, on its own, and on everything else in between. It’s soooo good.

To plate, lay a layer of rice down, then your broccoli and salmon. Top with avocado feta salsa. You can then drizzle some extra hot honey on your hot honey salmon bowls, or even cool that spice down with my mom’s homemade buttermilk ranch.
