Salmon and Vegetable Rice Bowl

This original dish is inspired by my love for Japanese Donburi, simply put, "Rice Bowl". It's a simple but elegant dish that packs a load of flavor while being mostly a healthy dish. The combination of ingredients in this dish offer a great balance of sweet, sour, salty, and spicy. If you have the Cilantro it adds a great kick of flavor! I like to serve this with Garlic and Sesame green beans or sugar snap peas (pictured). Very satisfying, I hope you enjoy this as much as we do .
