8 ounces fresh salmon, skinless and sushi grade

1/4 cup kimchi chili sauce

2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, diced

For serving:

1 teaspoon sesame seeds, black and white

Sushi rice, for serving

Avocado, for garnish

Lime, for garnish

Tortilla strips, for serving


  1. To begin, dice salmon into small squares, roughly the same size. Add the salmon to a mixing bowl.
  2. To the bowl of salmon, add the kimchi chili sauce and cilantro. Stir to combine. Refrigerate for 15 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning. 
  3. While the salmon is marinating, slice or dice your avocado and slice limes for garnish. 
  4. If preparing a sushi stack, use a ring mold and layer sushi rice, then diced avocado, then the spicy seasoned salmon. Top with a sprinkle of sesame seeds and crispy tortilla strips. Or serve with crispy tortilla chips and fresh lime wedges, for garnish.


This spicy salmon mixture can be used in sushi stacks, sushi rolls, poke bowls or hand rolls. It's the perfect flavorful addition to all your favorite sushi shapes. 

Substitute sushi-grade tuna for salmon, if preferred.
