Salmon Bowl Details

Hi babes!  This is my first recipe post of 2019 so of course, I wanted to start off the new year with something healthy! 😉 If you’re like 95% of people, come January, it’s time to start eating cleaning and getting the bod right and tight.

This recipe is not only gluten free but it’s also paleo – no grains, no dairy.  As I mentioned on my “What I Eat” post, I eat Paleo about 80-90% of the time.  This meal is a great dinner or lunch option to stay on track and eating healthy.

I love to create bowls for dinner using my favorite grain-free substitute, cauliflower rice, and this is a hit with the hubs!  It’s simple, fresh and delish!  See below for ingredients and steps.

Food Tip: Preparation is key to clean eating – make a big batch of cauliflower rice at the beginning of the week to use in different bowls.  It saves a lot of time and makes whipping together meal super easy!

Happy cooking!


(makes 4 servings)

Paleo & Gluten Free

6 cups of arugula (one small bin or bag)

Cauliflower rice (recipe here)

1 lb of salmon

4 hard boiled eggs – I use a pressure cooker.  It SO fast and easy.

1 avocado

1 lemon




1. Cook the cauliflower rice – recipe here. Note: I ended up using the cauliflower/broccoli/carrot pre-mix bag that I found in the grocery store.  You can use either just cauliflower or mixed version – they are both delicious!

2. Once the cauliflower rice is done, let it simmer to stay warm.  Turn the stove on med-high, place salmon in saucepan, sprinkle with salt/pepper and cook from 4 minutes until golden brown.  Flip to the other side and cook for about 2-3 more minutes or until it feel firm to the touch.  It should be a bit pink inside.  Don’t over cook – it will be dry!

3. It’s time to build the bowl.  Place 1/4 of the arugula into the bottom of the bowl.

4. Scoop 1/2 cup of cauliflower rice on top of the lettuce.

5. Set all remaining ingredients on top – 1 hard boil egg cut in half, 1/4 of an avocado sliced and 4 oz of salmon.

6. Finish off the bowl with a squeeze of lemon.  Enjoy!
