Sharing is caring!

Succulent salmon fillets flaked into a tasty rice salad with charred corn and avocado. A super easy salmon and rice salad recipe that’s perfect for spring and summer!

Our delicious salmon and rice salad is super healthy, super tasty and makes a lovely filling lunch or dinner.

Now remember how much we LOVED the chipotle salmon cooked in the Ooni pizza oven? Well we took that delicious salmon and used it to create this fantastic, vibrant and zingy salmon salad, which you can eat warm or cold.

The rice salad is packed to bursting with tasty flavours, with the chipotle salmon pairing up really nicely with the smooth, creamy avocado and the charred corn kernels. It’s effortless to make! (as you know they’re my favourite recipes!)

And.. I’ll even show you a few cheats so you can make this salmon salad even quicker!

How To Make Salmon And Rice Salad

  • Preheat the oven – to 200C / 400F / Gas Mark 6
  • Cook the corn – now this is the BEST and tastiest way to cook corn cobs! Lay a sheet of tin foil on your baking tray, then just wipe with a drop of olive oil so the corn cobs don’t stick. Next lay the corn cobs onto the oiled foil and spread half a teaspoon of butter onto each mini cob. Then season with salt and pepper, lay the other piece of foil on top and scrunch the edges into a tight sealed package. Place in the oven and cook for around 30 minutes.
  • Slice off the corn kernels – once the corn is cooked to perfection! Stand it on it’s end on a chopping board and using a sharp knife just shave off the cooked kernels.
  • Cook the rice – follow the packet instructions and cook your rice in the microwave.
  • Assemble your salmon salad – divide the rice between two plates, flake over the salmon fillets, scatter over the chopped avocado and corn kernels, then drizzle with a good squeeze of lime juice and scatter over the chopped coriander.
