Minute Read to Serve Rice disclosure

Growing up with Japanese grandparents, fish and rice were pretty much a staple at the dinner table. Even when everyone else was eating an American-style meal, my grandmother would always prepare fish and rice for herself and my grandfather. It’s funny, as a kid, a fish and rice meal didn’t have the same appeal as fried chicken or pizza. Now that I’m older and wiser, I realize the simple meal that my grandparents ate was a better meal choice. Unfortunately, I don’t always have the time to steam a whole fish or cook a whole pot of rice. So in I put my thinking cap on and came up with my own version of my grandmother’s fish and rice meal – The 5-Minute Salmon Egg Rice Bowl.

5-minute salmon egg rice recipe steps
To make this 5-minute Salmon Egg Rice Bowl, I just followed the directions on the Minute® Ready to Serve Rice box and had hot rice ready in 60 seconds! Then, while the rice was in the microwave, I was able to cook the eggs and mix the Chicken of the Sea Lemon Pepper Salmon Pouch with soy sauce. Of course, if you don’t care for lemon pepper, you can substitute it with one of the other Chicken of the Sea flavored salmon pouches – barbeque, sweet and spicy, or sriracha.

Finally, 0nce all the components are ‘cooked’, I mixed them together in a bowl and topped it with roasted sesame seeds and strips of nori (dried seaweed). And in about 5 minutes, I had a complete nutritious meal!

  1. We always don’t know any better especially when it comes to healthy food when we’re kids. We always want what looks tasty rather than the so-called “boring” ones that our grannies and moms used to cook. I think this dish is amazing and I can definitely cook it!

  2. Oh I am going to have to try this for my kids for lunch. They absolutely love anything with salmon. Why have I never thought of using those little things of rice before?!?! Such a time saver!

  3. The salmon egg rice recipe looks yummy. I like your ingredients works well together. I never added Chicken of the Sea Salmon into rice. The salmon pouch and rice are quick and easy meals to prep for the family.

  4. I can relate a bit, growing up, I wanted pizza, burgers and the processed foods my friends had, not the “weird” homemade stuff my Italian grandmother made us from her garden. Oh, if I knew then how lucky I was ! This bowl is a great nod back to your childhood.

  5. Since I no longer have a microwave I generally open up the ind rice-pit it and a bit of water into a saucepan and heat up! I’m not into salmon but I always have the tuna pouches in my fridge. I will prob try this recipe using tuna instead. I love those ind pouches–so much easier then cans!
