I adore Island Restaurant‘s burgers, salads and dinner bowls. The Beach Bowl is one of my favorite treats to make at home! It’s so easy, healthy, and delicious. And those colors! Such a pretty dish. We recently made these yummy bowls when our friend Dana came to visit.
You want to start with a pot of fully cooked brown rice and some yummy grilled chicken. I marinated our chicken in balsamic vinegar, coconut sugar, pink sea salt, olive oil, sesame oil, freshly ground black pepper, and a dash of cayenne pepper. I just put the marinade, along with the chicken, in a big Ziploc bag and allowed it to marinate in the fridge for about 5 hours prior to grilling the chicken over charcoal.
This is also wonderful with grilled Mahi Mahi fish!
