  • In a bowl whisk together fish marinade ingredients and pour over fish. Let sit for 10 minutes or up to 1 hour.
  • Cook fish inside: Place broiler on high. Place fish on a lined and greased baking sheet and broil for 7 to 9 minutes depending on the thickness of your fish. Add sesame seeds to garnish.
  • Cook fish on the grill: Grease grill and heat to medium. Place fish on a sheet of tin foil and cook for 8 to 10 minutes until fully cooked to your liking. Add sesame seeds to garnish.
  • In a skillet heat oil and garlic scapes and sauté until kale is wilted and garlic scapes have softened slightly.
  • Assemble bowls: Add rice to each bowl. Top with kale mixture, salmon, avocado, cucumber, egg, scallions, and radish slices. Serve and enjoy.
