Sweet Chili Salmon Bowl


  • 1-2 lbs wild caught salmon filets
  • 4 cups arugula or spinach
  • 2 cups cooked rice or quinoa
  • 1-14 oz can of black beans, drained
  • Cuisinart sweet chili seasoning
  • Kosher salt
  • Olive oil
  • Pineapple mango salsa (below)


Preheat your grill to medium high heat. Prepare your salmon. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with a little kosher salt, then use 1 tablespoon of sweet chili seasoning divided for all the salmon pieces. Rub into the flesh. Let stand for 10 minutes before grilling. Grill over medium high heat for 3 to 4 minutes on each side. When the fish is done, it will flake easily with a fork. Juices will be clear.

Remove the salmon and set aside. Make pineapple mango salsa.

Pineapple Mango Salsa


  • 1 cup diced mango
  • 1 cup diced fresh pineapple
  • 1 small red onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro
  • 1 jalapeño seeded and diced
  • 1 lime juiced
  • Kosher salt

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl. Gently toss to coat all the flavors together.

Assemble your bowl.

  • Arugula
  • Rice or quinoa
  • Black beans
  • Salmon
  • Pineapple mango salsa

Sprinkle with a little bit more of the sweet chili seasoning just before serving.
