How to Make Agave and Soy Sauce Glazed Salmon Bowls

For some reason my kids won’t really eat salmon, unless I serve it cubed. So of course this is how I’ve been serving salmon almost weekly and usually on Mondays. With these easy additions from Trader Joe’s like the ready made rice and edamame, all I have to do is cook the salmon, quickly marinade the cucumber and assemble the bowls.

I like to start by making a quick soy and agave marinade and pouring it over the cubed salmon. I try to wait 10-15 minutes before cooking it.

In another bowl, I mix the ingredients for the cucumber salad. Sometimes I like to add thin slices of red onion and also red pepper flakes for an added spice.

We also love to eat these bowls with seaweed snacks. In fact, my kids call this quick salmon dinner “sushi” because they like to add bites of salmon, edamame, cucumber and avocado with rice into the seaweed for a bite of full flavor. Hope you try it. Here is the full recipe and step by step.
