Storage and Reheating

If you want to store and reheat your leftover teriyaki salmon bowl, you have a few great options!

Best Way To Store

Store any leftover salmon teriyaki rice bowl in an airtight container after it’s completely cooled.

How Long Will The Leftovers Last In the Fridge?

As long as your salmon rice bowl is stored properly, it can last in the fridge for up to 4 days.

Can I Freeze Leftover Salmon Teriyaki Rice Bowl?

Yes, you can! However, I suggest only freezing the salmon, as freezing the cooked rice and veggies will change the texture and not taste very good.

As long as your salmon is properly stored, you can store your leftovers in the freezer for up to 6 months.

How To Reheat Teriyaki Salmon Bowl 

To reheat the leftover salmon rice bowl, place the salmon in the air fryer basket and set the air fryer to 350 degrees. Reheat it for about 3-5 minutes or until warmed through.

Reheat the leftover rice and veggies in the microwave for about one minute and thirty seconds. If needed, continue to cook the salmon at 30-second intervals until done.

If you have frozen salmon, I suggest thawing it overnight in the fridge before reheating.
