Teriyaki Salmon Bowl
This sticky marinade is seriously good with a beautiful, fresh piece of fish.
I personally don't think it gets yummier than teriyaki salmon so I decided to make my own recipe with only a few ingredients.
The healthy fats from the salmon and fibre from the veg are just one of the reasons this is a food I eat to stabilise your mood and reduce anxiety. Hello happy food!
You can add whatever vegetables you like to this bowl. I normally use whatever veg is in the fridge - or throw in half a tin of beans like chickpeas (one of the best foods to eat for avoiding constipation).
Use can whatever vegetables are in the fridge - Almost anything goes! I used shredded red cabbage, carrot noodles, broccolini, coriander, 1/4 avocado, and 1/2 tin of chickpeas. I also added a dollop of tahini :)
Almost any other vegetables would be great to add! Try sweet potato, brussel sprouts, beans, cauliflower, pumpkin, leafy greens, sprouts or baked carrot.
Enjoy this recipe!
Salmon Teriyaki Bowl 🐟
Prep time 10 minutes
Cooking time 8 minutes
2 x 125g fillets of salmon (I use Huon Salmon)
2cm grated ginger
2 cloves of garlic
4 tablespoons of soy sauce (or Tamari)
2 tablespoons local honey
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon of mirin (rice vinegar)
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
In a small bowl, mix ginger, garlic, soy sauce, honey, extra virgin olive oil and mirin. Put some marinade aside for the veggies.
Place fresh salmon fillets to mix. Marinade for 5 minutes but even longer is better!
Cook skin down on the BBQ (or in a fry pan) on medium high for 3-4 minutes. Flip gently and repeat. You may want to toss broccolini in the marinade and add that to the BBQ too!
Remove salmon from heat. Place in a serving bowl with your favourite vegetables* or wholegrains. Pour remaining marinade on veg. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, fresh herbs (try shallots and coriander) and enjoy!
