This healthy Teriyaki Salmon Rice Bowl recipe is packed full of protein, healthy fat and fiber, and is soy-based in ways you might not expect. Edamame is a harvested immature soybean, viewed as a popular source of protein. Soy protein, like edamame, is a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), approved health claim to prevent heart disease. Soy sauce, as stated in the name, is made from fermented soybeans. It is a versatile sauce which can be used as a table condiment or as an added ingredient while cooking to add more flavor.

While there are a few obvious soy-based ingredients within this recipe, the salmon used in the dish is also soy-based. Prairie Aquatech located in Brookings, South Dakota, is using soybeans to create another sustainable product. Their facility in Volga, South Dakota has patented a fermentation process used to produce a unique protein ingredient. They have created a fermented soy-based protein ingredient called ME-PRO®. The process concentrates the protein and amino acids, while removing the complex sugars and carbohydrates that are difficult for aquatic species to digest.
Prairie Aquatech makes a protein ingredient, not a complete fish food. Much like household pets, fish and shrimp have specific dietary needs that typically require the combination of 8-15 different ingredients to satisfy their nutritional needs. Prairie Aquatech makes a protein ingredient in their food that satisfies these nutritional needs. The formulations are also adjusted for different species. For example, the formulation for salmon will be different from trout, which will also be different for shrimp. Each fish is fed differently according to their needs, leading to the best quality fish to add to your own diet.
This recipe contains three different types of soy, and is packed full of great ingredients. To learn more about Prairie Aquatech read Soybeans in Aquafeed: Prairie AquaTech and SD Soybeans. And for more fish recipes by Hungry for Truth check out Spice Up Your Fiesta With Chipotle Lime Shrimp Tacos.
Terriyaki Salmon Bowl
- 1 lb Salmon Filet cut into chunks
- 1 cup Rice
- 3 tbsp Rice Vinegar
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 1 tbsp Honey
- 1 tsp Brown Sugar
- 2 tsp Soy Sauce
- 1 tsp Sesame Oil
- 1/2 tsp Grated Garlic
- 1/2 tsp Grated Ginger
- 1 tbsp Sriracha optional (or any hot sauce you like)
- 4 Scallions
- 2 tbsp Sesame Seeds
- 5 oz Edamame
- 1 Avocado sliced

- In the meantime, mix the rice vinegar, brown sugar, and salt together in a small bowl, stirring well until the sugar and salt have dissolved in the vinegar. When the rice is cooked, pour the dressing over and stir to coat the rice.
- Divide the cooked rice between two bowls so that two-thirds of each base is covered. Sprinkle rice with sesame seeds. In the remaining third, arrange edamame and sliced avocado.
- To make the Teriyaki sauce, mix the honey, sesame oil, tamari (or soy sauce), garlic, ginger, and Sriracha together in a small bowl.
- In a skillet over medium heat, heat 1 tablespoon oil and add the diced salmon filets. Brown the salmon quickly on all sides, then pour the Teriyaki sauce over.
- Turn the heat back up to high – stir so that the salmon is fully coated in the Teriyaki sauce and then sprinkle the spring onions over the top. Continue to cook on high heat for a couple of minutes, stirring occasionally, until the salmon is glazed and cooked to your liking. Remove from the pan and scoop the teriyaki salmon and spring onions onto the sushi bowls. Serve the Teriyaki salmon bowl with extra tamari soy sauce on the side if you like. Enjoy! ❤️
