Every now and again I make a new recipe that surprises even me. These Greek Salmon Bowls were so good they knocked my (and my husband’s) socks clean off. Seriously, these taste like something you’d get at a restaurant. The combo of the crispy salmon over soft cous cous, paired with bright, fresh veggies, a super garlicky yogurt sauce, and all finished in a lemony dressing? It’s simply the perfect combo of flavor and textures, I’m convinced.

Making these just requires a bit of quick prep and then you can assemble and enjoy. You can totally make the parts of this recipe ahead of time and assemble when you’re ready to eat, and they’re good hot or cold (so hellllo, leftovers)!

Making Greek Salmon Bowls

While these have a lot of components, each part is quick to throw together, and the recipe uses a lot of the same ingredients across multiple parts. You’ll season your salmon and throw it in the air fryer, and while it cooks you can make your cous cous, salad, yogurt, and dressing. By the time the salmon is done, all of the parts should be finished and ready to assemble!

To make these bowls, you’ll need:

For the Salmon

  • 8–12 ounces Slmon (skin removed), cut into bite-sized pieces
  • salt, pepper, garlic powder, dried dill, and Italian seasoning
  • cooking spray

Coat salmon well with spiced then spray well with cooking spray. Air fry at 390F for 10 min, until salmon is cooked through and crispy.

Lemon Dressing:

  • Lemon juice + zest of 1/2 lemon
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • honey mustard (or if you don’t have any, dijon mustard + 1 tsp honey)
  • olive oil
  • Fresh garlic, finely minced
  • salt and pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients in a small mixing bowl and whisk together until combined.

Garlic yogurt:

  • Nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • Fresh dill, minced fresh garlic, and fresh or dried chives
  • Lemon juice and zest from 1/2 a lemon
  • Pinch of salt

Combine all ingredients in a small mixing bowl and mix to combine.

Bowl Ingredients (makes 2 bowls)

  • 2 cups cooked cous cous (if gluten free, substitute rice)
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cup cucumber, diced
  • 1/4 red onion, diced finely
  • 2 tbsp fat free feta crumbles
  • 1/2 cup garlic yogurt (above)

In a small mixing bowl, combine tomato, cucumber, onion, and feta and toss together. To assemble each bowl, put down 1 cup of cous cous (or rice), top with salmon, add a heaping cup of greek salad. Lastly, add 1/2 cup of the garlic yogurt, and finish the bowl with a drizzle of the lemon dressing. Enjoy!
