Food never sleeps.

Spicy Salmon Roll Sushi Bowl

2 min read


Menlo Park’s Andrea Potischman, the classically-trained chef and food blogger behind Simmer + Sauce, calls this her go-to healthful meal on hot summer nights. The recipe includes quick pickled cucumbers, short-grain sushi rice (though any leftover rice works) and a spicy dressing.

Be sure to ask your fish monger or butcher for sushi-grade salmon, the highest grade fresh fish available, and tell him or her you plan to eat it raw. Don’t like uncooked fish? Chilled tofu works great, too.
