    I never heard of the tiktok but since my family basically lives off Costco salmon and rice, this is a variation of what I have been making for some years now. I sometimes use korean gochujang paste and a little sesame for my “sauce” Some times I use the black bean paste in addition. You can’t really go wrong with rice and salmon and any kind of asian seasoning. A little Thai style I add green or yellow curry bottled sauce. The options are kinda endles. I add green peas or sliced cucumbers–crunchy stuff . Sesame seeds. I can see some diced boiled potatoes up in that baby too. And a soft egg. Or try sriracha. I could go on but I won’t. Love you Emmy. You fill me up without all the calories.
