Spicy Thai Salmon Grain Bowls loaded with veggies, brown basmati rice and warm baked salmon and a drizzle of spicy Thai sauce.
Meals are better in bowl form…AMIRIGHT?
These Spicy Thai Salmon Grain Bowls are easily customizable if you want more or less of an ingredient–you decide!
I like building bowls with a base of hearty whole grains to give me energy that lasts. Grain bowls keep me more satisfied too.
And that’s why I’m so LOVING these Spicy Thai Salmon Grain Bowls right now.
This recipe was created with Thrive® Algae Oil, an earth friendly oil made from algae.
And the best part is that it has a light, neutral taste that lets the fresh flavors of your food shine through.
Thrive® Algae Oil has a bunch of great health benefits too! The oil has a high percentage of monounsaturated fat, a good fat that helps maintain heart health, and contains 75% less saturated fat than olive oil.
Aside from those great health benefits, I love cooking with Thrive® Algae Oil because it has a high smoke point of up to 485 degrees! Meaning it’s safe to use for high temperature cooking like roasting, grilling, searing and pan frying. Not to mention its light, neutral taste, which makes it a great addition to salad dressings and baked goods.
