Easiest Buffalo Salmon Bowl

This buffalo salmon bowl is a great way to have a very easy, flavorful, and healthy dinner.

  • Total Time: 7 mins
  • Yield: 2 servings 1x


  • 2 salmon filets, skin-off, pinbone removed, about 6 oz each
  • 1 cup of buffalo sauce
  • 2 ribs of celery, chopped
  • 1 persian cucumber, chopped
  • ½ cup blue cheese crumbles
  • 1 cup rice, or 2 cups of cooked rice


  1. Cut the salmon filets into small bite size cubes.  Marinate the salmon with a half cup of buffalo sauce or just enough to coat it.
  2. Cook the rice or if using a microwavable rice you can do this while the salmon is cooking (step 4)
  3. Chop the celery and cucumbers.
  4. Cook the salmon with the buffalo marinade in a non-stick pan over medium heat for about 2 minutes, tossing or flipping halfway.  The salmon will cook pretty quickly since it is in small pieces and in sauce.
  5. Build the bowls by placing 1 cup of cooked rice in the bottom, top with half the cucumber, half the celery and ¼ cup of blue cheese crumbles and then spoon on the salmon with some of the sauce from the pan.  You can drizzle with the reserved buffalo sauce if more is needed.
