  • 2 filets salmon I used Atlantic but King or Sockeye will work too
  • 2 tablespoon coconut aminos
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt

For the spicy yogurt sauce

  • ¼ cup plain yogurt I used 0% greek yogurt but any type of yogurt will work
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce
  • ½ teaspoon chipotle powder
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

For the rice bowls

  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • ½ cup cooked edamame
  • ½ avocado


  • Pat your salmon filets dry with a paper towel (this makes it easier to handle with your hands). Use a sharp knife to cut the skin off the filet if needed. Then cut the salmon filets into 2 inch cubes.
  • Place the salmon cubes in a small bowl and add the coconut aminos, sesame oil, honey, garlic powder, and sea salt. Gently toss the salmon in the marinade mixture and allow the salmon to sit for at least 3 minutes to soak up the liquid.
  • Place the marinated salmon in the bottom of an air fryer basket, leaving space in between each one. Save the leftover marinade so you can drizzle it over the cooked salmon later. Cook the salmon at 400 F for 7 minutes in the air fryer. The edges of each cube will get crispy and the teriyaki sauce will caramelize.
  • While the salmon is cooking, prepare the spicy yogurt sauce in a small bowl by mixing together the yogurt, hot sauce, chipotle powder, paprika, and olive oil with a spoon until well combined.
  • To assemble the bowls, place 1 cup of cooked brown rice into the bottom of a bowl. Spoon a few of the fried salmon bites over top followed by a handful of edamame in a section of the bowl and a few avocado slices in another. Spoon some of the leftover marinade over top of the salmon bites and then drizzle the whole bowl with some spicy yogurt sauce and enjoy!
