Brown Rice Bowl With Avocado And Salmon

Cuisinart original

While your rice is cooking, you will have plenty of time to prepare the vegetables and salmon for this quick and healthy meal that is high in protein and good-for-you fats. Do not feel like you need to stay in the boundaries of the suggested vegetables - there are so many items that would work nicely. If you have leftover chicken on hand, that works well as a substitute for the salmon.


Makes 1 serving


½ lime

¼ teaspoon Korean chili paste

1 small radish (the watermelon variety makes for a beautiful presentation if you can find it; if not, the classic red radish works well, or even daikon)

½ medium carrot, peeled

1 1-to 2-inch piece seedless cucumber

½ small, firm avocado

1 cup cooked, short-grain brown rice, warm

1 3-to 4-ounce salmon fillet, cooked to desired doneness

½ teaspoon sesame oil

Sesame seeds, white or black or a combination of both

Fresh basil, thinly sliced (chiffonade)

Fresh cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
