  1. Prepare salmon according to cooking instructions
  2. While the salmon is cooking, evenly distribute the rice into bowls. Follow the picture above for an adult bowl, evenly distributing the carrots, cucumber, avocado, and edamame.
  3. Prepare the spicy mayo sauce by adding mayo, siracha, thai sauce, garlic powder, and salt into a bowl. Stir. Add the sauce into a topping dispenser or a plastic bag and cut a small whole in one corner (think: old fashion method of applying icing!)
  4. Once the salmon is cooked, add salmon to each bowl.
  5. Drizzle the spicy mayo over the bowl and sprinkle sesame seeds.
  6. See pictures below for baby/toddler poke bowl options.
  7. Enjoy!
