Lox & Schmear Salmon Bowl Recipe

My twist on the viral salmon bowl is a Lox & Schmear Salad Bowl

Serves 1

This no-recipe recipe is perfect for using up leftover rice or smoked salmon you have on hand! Experiment with toppings, sauces, and mix-ins.

My twist on the viral bowl is a Lox & Schmear Salad Bowl, which involves hot smoked salmon, Kewpie mayo, everything bagel spice, red onions, dill, and cucumbers for an equally satisfying dish that tastes like your favorite bagel and lox.
