This smoked salmon avocado sushi bowl is loaded with all your favorite sushi toppings like smoked salmon, avocado, cucumber, and carrots. It is then topped with squares of nori sheets and toasted sesame seeds. It’s healthy, easy to make, customizable, and very filling.
Lunchtime can be a little tricky to cook for. You’re right in the middle of your work day and don’t want something to slow you down. Even if you work from home like me, you don’t always want to stop what you’re doing and make food. I normally reach for cookies or muffins as my lunch - not great I know, or have a salad.
This smoked salmon sushi bowl is the best kind of salad. The sushi rice base is super filling, but you still have the fresh elements like cucumber and carrots and lots of smoked salmon - which is always my favorite part! It’s the perfect lunch for during the week or a fun dinner idea when you don’t feel like making sushi rolls.
Another great thing about this homemade sushi bowl is that you can base them on your favorite sushi rolls or you can use whatever veggies and protein you have on hand.
Homemade Sushi Bowl Ingredients
As always the ingredients are all organic!
I use cooked and seasoned sushi rice as the base of these smoked salmon sushi bowls. Check out my recipe for how to cook sushi rice in an Instant Pot.
If you don’t want to use sushi rice, you could also use plain white or brown rice too!
These seaweed sheets usually hold everything together into a roll. Since we are making sushi bowls, just cut them into squares and serve them on top of your bowls!
Use a high-quality brand of smoked salmon. You could also use poached or baked salmon, tofu, or tuna.
Use whichever chopped veggies you like. Steamed or sauteed broccoli or asparagus would be great too!
Toasted white or black sesame seeds look nice and add a subtle crunch. Soy sauce, wasabi, or pickled ginger taste great too!

Frequently Asked Questions —
What is the difference between a sushi bowl and a poke bowl?
They are pretty much the same thing! Both consist of a base of cooked rice, chopped veggies, and fish. Poke bowls almost always feature raw sushi-grade tuna or salmon and for sushi bowls it’s optional!
How much rice is a serving for sushi bowls?
I usually serve 1 cup of rice per person. With all the other toppings it’s more than enough!
