Preheat the oven to 350° and line a baking sheet with foil.

In a medium bowl, whisk together soy sauce, olive oil, Thai sweet chili sauce, lime juice, honey and garlic.

Add salmon and gently toss to combine. Place on a prepared baking sheet and bake until salmon is fork-tender, 20 to 25 minutes.

In a bowl or jar, add vinegar, sugar and salt, and microwave until sugar and salt are dissolved.

It usually takes around two minutes. Stir in sesame oil, then add cucumbers and shake to combine.

Cover with a tight-fitting lid or plastic wrap until ready to use.

Next, in a small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, Sriracha, and sesame oil.

Pour brown rice and spinach into the bottom of the bowl.

Finally, drizzle with spicy mayo. Enjoy!
