This week we had these spicy salmon roll bowl by Healthyish Foods for dinner. Let me be the first to say this: this dish is amazing! Trust me, it won't be hard to find a reason to eat this 3x in one week, it's that good. They were really easy to make, and after a long day at work, that was a welcomed change. Overall it took about 40 minutes to prepare and as soon as I hit publish on this post, I'm going to make it again.
I know why you're here so I'll just get right to it...
