You guys! So excited for today, but also kind of nervous! I have a big video shoot this week and basically my nerves are beyond me at the moment. YIKES!


Soo, speaking of nerves, I’ve got to know, how on Earth do you guys handle being anxious? A lot of times, if I am really anxious, my poor mom will get the brunt of it. Unfortunately, I seem to take all my stresses out on her. BUT then she talks me through things and I feel like a million and one times better…or at least I try to do that! Currently, I’m just telling myself that what I am feeling is excitement for the big week I have. Hoping that trumps all the anxious bones in my body. Fake it till you make it, right?

That’s currently what I’m sticking too. Also, I’m trying to act like I know what I am doing in front of the camera, but let’s be real, I totally don’t! Hey, at least I have snapchat for practice! Although, someone pointed out on Saturday that I should probably not play with my hair soo much…oooopppsss. It’s those dang nerves! ?

Note to self, no playing with hair. Got it, get it good.

OK. ?

Um, OOK so can we talk about this recipe, now? Because not only is it super pretty, but is delish and SO healthy. Perfect for a Monday meal, right?!? Plus, we mat or may not be doing some serious cheeses things later this week…it is going to be good. BUT, lets focus on today!

Today we’re making salmon souvlaki bowls!! YES. They are going to be sooo good!

Soo these bowls are super healthy, crazy fast, and insanely delicious!

A while back, I made souvlaki gyros, and those were pretty much everything. But seeing as I am obsessed with all things “bowl” lately, I thought I would give that recipe a little twist!

Alright, so here’s how this goes…

…you want to start with either couscous or farro. You could probably also use quinoa, and or brown rice, but I personally love couscous or farro…very mediterranean.

…next up, the salmon! Oh my gosh, this is sooo good, it’s just a simple marinade made up of plenty of oregano and garlic, but again, it is delish!

…from there we move on to our veggies! Grilled bell pepper, zucchini, heirloom cherry tomatoes + Persian cucumbers. Yum!

…finish these bowls off with some cubes of feta cheese and homemade avocado Tzatziki.

…oops, almost forgot those kalamata olives, yes, those are a must!!

OK and that’s your bowl. Kind of packed, right? Just the way I like it! Yes, please!

And that’s it from me today! If you want to hang out with me in real-time today, check out the behind the scenes on snapchat (username: hbharvest) AND the Food Network Facebook page as I am doing some Facebook Live video. YEAH!

Have a great Monday guys!

  1. 5 stars
    I just made this fabulous bowl last night. It was amazing! One change I made…due to the fact that I was being lazy…I baked the salmon in the marinade at 400 for about 12-14 mins. and sautéed the veggies. I dribbled the salmon with the marinade before serving.
    My husband could not stop talking about it during dinner…the textures and layers of flavor. Really great dinner!
    Thank you for this wonderful recipe! xo

  2. Made this salmon souvlaki bowl for dinner AGAIN! Love your recipes! Thanks so much for sharing!

  3. You mention souvlaki gyros, but don’t include a link? So mean! This recipe sounds fabulous (and I’ve added ingredients to my shopping list), but c’mon. For those of us on a tablet or mobile, a link would have been nice! ?

  4. We had this for dinner last night and both loved it. We will be making this on a regular basis as we eat salmon at least once a week. Thank you for such a delicious recipe!

  5. Made this for dinner for my husband and I. Sooo tasty! The salmon marinade was awesome! Used quinoa as I had it on hand. A big bowl of yum!

  6. Made this recipe last night – it was good as it looked. I added an avocado just because I had a ready-to-eat one begging to be included 🙂 The presentation, taste and WOW-ness of it was great! More than enough for leftovers for lunch today – and was just as good! Thanks Tieghan!

  7. Just made this tonight and we really loved it! Only change I made was the save a few tablespoons of the marinade (before adding the salmon) to drizzle on the couscous (instead of just the lemon juice) It was truly flavorful and delicious!! Thank you!

  8. Hi, I have been reading your blog for the last month and I want you to know that you are a Genius! Every morning I look forward to your recipe for the day, I click on it and then I get lost in your blog looking at pictures and recipes. Amazing!!
    I will try a couple of your recipes I printed out, Salmon Souvlaki Bowls and Avocado Tzatziki, my mouth is watering already:)
    Thanks for sharing all your work!

  9. I just made this for dinner. Wow!!! Absolutely delicious and equally beautiful. A perfect blend of textures, flavours, colors and temperatures. I made one tiny addition which was chunks of fresh, ripe nectarine, only because there was one sitting next to my cutting board and it looked like it wanted to join the party. It actually worked quite well and added another element of brightness to the salad. Thank you for sharing this beautiful recipe. I’ll be making it over and over again!!

  10. You’re going to be amazing on camera!! Just breathe, relax, and smile. Everything is going to be fine! Remember — it’s only you and a small piece of glass that you’re staring at. A small, round piece of glass called a camera lens. That’s it! Nothing to be afraid of or nervous about! 🙂

    1. Your so right!! It wasn’t as scary as I was thinking but still nervous for every time! haha!
      Thanks so much Amy(:

  11. What a perfect summer dish!

    I am currently reading The Anxiety and Phobia Workbook. HORRIBLE title, I know, but I am only a few chapters in and it is already SO HELPFUL. Lots of helpful tips for easing anxiety: getting out of negative self-talk patterns, tips for sleep, managing time. I think one of the most helpful things for you would be Mindfulness practice, and since you are so busy and may not be able to fit yoga into your days right now, just focus on deep breathing could be VERY helpful.

  12. This is so gorgeous and summery, just what I’m craving! I hear you on anxiety (I have a fair amount myself!). Running and staying active on a daily basis helps me as does staying too busy to let me mind dwell on any worries. You are going to rock the shoot! 🙂
