Bang Bang Salmon Bowls

What is Bang Bang Salmon?

Have you ever had bang bang shrimp? It’s a shrimp dish made with bang bang sauce which is essentially comprised of mayo and chili sauce for a spicy and creamy dish! Bang bang shrimp is a common thing to see on menus, so I decided to make my own version with salmon!

This bang bang salmon is inspired by bang bang shrimp. It’s made with a homemade bang bang, baked in the oven and served with broccoli and cauliflower rice. This recipe is paleo, whole30, keto and can be made AIP.

How to Make Bang Bang Salmon

  • Combine the ingredients for the bang bang sauce and whisk well. Season further to taste.
  • Pat the salmon dry and top with avocado oil. Add the bang bang sauce to the salmon (reserve and serve on top when the salmon is done if using AIP sauce) and evenly spread.
  • Transfer the salmon to the oven and bake for 12-15 minutes or until the salmon is cooked through and easily flakes.
  • Divide the cauliflower rice and broccoli between 3-4 bowls. Add the salmon and top with green onion and serve fresh.

How to make the recipe AIP

Neither mayo nor hot sauces are AIP friendly. You can make an AIP bang bang sauce with coconut cream, AIP ketchup, and turmeric. You also won’t bake it in the oven as the coconut cream won’t bake like the mayo, but you’ll simply just top the salmon with the sauce after it’s baked.

The Ingredients For This Recipe

Mayo, sriracha, coconut aminos, and seasoning

These are the main ingredients for the bang bang sauce. Make sure you’re using compliant versions!

Salmon

I prefer to use wild-caught sockeye salmon, but you can also use coho salmon.

Cauliflower rice and broccoli

You can use either steamed or roasted broccoli.
