Hey y’all! Ever get that craving for sushi??? I know for sure my hubs can’t be the only one! It’s his favorite! And while I love going out to eat, sometimes we just need an easy solution at home for a fraction of the cost. And that, my friends, is where these Salmon Stacks come in!!
These salmon stacks are SO fun!! I got this idea from one of those FB food videos, one from a fellow blogger at Skinnytaste. They are so simple and easy to make, and they look super impressive. The flavors meld into a flavorful and fresh snack, lunch or even a light dinner.
These Salmon Stacks have it all!!
- Fresh Cucumber
- Creamy Avocado
- Pink Salmon mixed with a hint of spicy mayo
- Fluffy Cilantro Lime Rice
- All drizzled with some spicy mayo.
To make this dish even easier to make you can make the rice ahead of time, if you meal prep you can simply make a batch of rice and keep it in the fridge to toss this all together for lunches during the day.
How to make a salmon stack:
I used my one cup measuring cup. Mashing the avocado helps to hold the layers together. As well as adding the spicy mayo to the salmon. I ran a butter knife along the inside of the cup to help release it, carefully turned it over onto a flat surface and just gently lift! It comes right out! Sprinkle some green onion on top and drizzle with spicy mayo.
