An easy to prepare Salmon Sushi Bowl - all of the flavours of Sushi, in minimal time. Plus a 2-minute soy and ginger dressing that tastes way better than those little soy sauce plastic fish thingies!
I'm still trying to get over that imposter syndrome feeling of having my own book out. Sometimes I wish I was extrovert enough to shout it from the rooftops, but I'm definitely little miss introvert. Quietly hoping that it's a success without me having to talk about it to lots of people (or even worse - stand up in front groups of people to talk about it. Worst nightmare!).
Fortunately Chris is amazing at getting me to edge out of my comfort zone on occasion (he'll be supporting me when I'm on stage at the Big Feastival in August), and I always feel great afterwards, but then I'm happy to get straight back into my little cozy office or the sanctuary of my kitchen and hide again.
But...... that means I can share more recipes with you guys!
This Salmon Sushi Bowl is the second recipe I've shared from my book (the first being my Chimichurri Steak Salad) I'll probably end up sharing 3 or 4 altogether over the next few months, but I wanted to share this one with you whilst the weather is still lovely and warm.
We also made a video for the Sushi Salad (incidentally, making recipe videos also used to fill me with introvert dread, but I'm so used to it that I don't even think of it now. I guess repeatedly being exposed to certain situations really does help) - check it out below.
It's finished with little slices of smoked salmon (I know, smoked salmon isn't normally used for sushi, but it works brilliantly and is much easier to find than sushi-grade sliced salmon).
