We’re excited to partner with Minute Rice to bring you today’s easy lunch recipe! All opinions are 100% our own.
This easy Sweet and Spicy Salmon Rice Bowl recipe is a mix of salmon, rice, and sweet peppers and coated in a chili lime sauce.
Sometimes you just need a quick and easy lunch recipe that isn’t a sandwich or a bowl of soup. Not that I have anything against a good sandwich, that’s great, but when you’re rushing off to work every day throwing the same thing into a lunch bag it can get a little boring. Minute® Ready to Serve Rice has totally changed lunches for me! Now I can make things like this Sweet and Spicy Salmon Rice Bowl recipe in just a few minutes. Minute® Ready to Serve Rice comes in a single serving portion that only need to cook for 60 seconds in the microwave. Yep, you read that right, 60 seconds! I love these little things because I can take one to work, heat it up, add a few simple ingredients and Voila! I have an awesome, hot meal instead of a boring old sandwich.
Rice bowls are great because there are so many flavor combinations that you can make with them. I love to experiment and I’ve shared a few of my favorites including these Cheesy Ham and Broccoli Rice Bowl and Chicken and Mushroom Wild Rice Bowl recipes, but my Sweet and Spicy Salmon Rice bowl recipe has been my go to lately. It was inspired by Chicken of the Sea Pink Salmon, Sweet and Spicy pounches. Chicken of the Sea Salmon pouches are single serving too, and just like the Minute Ready to Serve Rice it doesn’t need to be refrigerated. That makes it extra easy to take on the go! I whip up a quick chili lime sauce and chop up a few sweet peppers, pack them along with my Minute Ready to Serve Rice and Chicken of the Sea Pink Salmon, Sweet and Spicy packet, and when lunchtime rolls around I throw everything together for a quick, simple, delicious meal. I’ve been using Minute Ready to Serve Brown Rice for this but there are a variety to choose from including Brown & Quinoa, Basmati Rice, Multi-Grain Medley, Jasmine Rice, and mixes like Black Beans and Rice, so get creative and give something different a try.
This Sweet and Spicy Salmon Rice bowl makes a nutritious meal for people on the go whether it’s a quick lunch at work, dinner for a busy college student, or a fast lunch for a mom who is always running out the door to pick someone up or take them somewhere.
