Salmon Sushi Bake

Having a plethora of wild caught Alaskan salmon makes creating recipes like this salmon sushi bake a necessity! I have clients tell me all the time they don’t know how to cook salmon or are using the same recipe over and over again. Why?!

Salmon can be cooked in so many ways with a variety of different flavor profiles. This salmon sushi bake is a great one to start with if you love umami and sushi in general. It’s my version of making sushi at home with the bonus of having leftovers for lunch.

 

Salmon Sushi Bake Nutrition Info:

Salmon: Salmon is a rich source of protein and omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3s are linked to reducing inflammation, decreasing the risk of heart disease and lower blood pressure. A 3.5 ounce serving of salmon contains about 24 grams of protein! Also, salmon is a great source of B vitamins essential for energy and overall health.

Seaweed: Seaweed or “nori” is sometimes referred to as the vegetable of the sea. Seaweed contains essential amino acids, antioxidants and is a concentrated source of iodine known to support thyroid help.

Cucumber: Cucumbers add that refreshing crunch to sushi! Even though cucumbers have a high water content and are low calories they still provide vitamins, minerals and fiber.

Carrots: Carrots are known for being a great source of vitamin A and K. I like them in sushi for the same reasons as cucumbers, carrots add crunch and flavor!

Rice: White rice is my personal preference but you could certainly use brown rice in this recipe if you are looking for additional fiber and macronutrients. I bump up the veggies when loading my nori for the extra health benefits and to make the meal more satiating.
