The original recipe can be found here.Our healthy take on teriyaki – a popular Japanese dish with meat, marinated in a sweet, soy-based sauce served with rice. We have swapped the meat for salmon and decreased the carbs by replacing the sugar with semi-sweet coconut aminos and replaced rice with tender and vibrant veggies. This quick and easy one-pan meal is a keeper for sure!
- 3 tbsp tamari soy sauce
- 2 tbsp coconut aminos
- 3 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tbsp rice vinegar or white vinegar 5%
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- 2 tbsp fresh giner minced
- 3 cloves garlic minced
- 1 tbsp sesame seeds
Salmon and vegetables
- 1 ¾ lbs salmon, boneless fillets, but into portions
- 10 oz. broccoli forets halved
- 10 oz. Napa cabbage, cut into smaller pieces
- 1 red chili pepper sliced
- Preheat oven to 375°F (175°C). Set aside a large sheet pan.
- In a small saucepan, over medium-high heat, mix together the tamari soy sauce, coconut aminos, coconut oil, vinegar, sesame oil, ginger, garlic, and sesame seeds. Once boiling, reduce temperature to medium-low, cover, and simmer while prepping the salmon and vegetables.
- Place the salmon on the sheet pan, surrounded by the broccoli and cabbage. Drizzle the teriyaki sauce over everything.
- Bake on the middle rack for 15-20 minutes, depending upon the thickness of the salmon.
- To serve, top with the red chili slices. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
