- 2 salmon filets
- 1/2 cup Coconut aminos
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1.5 tsp apple cider vinegar
- 1 tsp Fresh ginger – grated
- 4 cloves fresh garlic – minced
- 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
- 1/2 tbsp arrowroot starch
FOR THE BOWL
- 1/2 cup jasmine rice – uncooked
- 4 heads boy choy
- 1 medium head broccoli
- 3 slices fresh ginger (size of thumb, sliced long ways)
- 2 cloves garlic – minced
- 1 avocado – halved then sliced
- Sesame Seeds
- Green Onion
Step 1: For the teriyaki sauce, combine all ingredients in a high powered blender and blend until smooth
Step 2: Place salmon filets in a mixing bowl and pour over the sauce – make sure all of the salmon has been covered. Cover and allow to marinate in the fridge for 20 min – 60 min
Step 3: Preheat oven to 400 and prepare the remainder of your bowl. Soak rice and chop veggies
Step 4: Remove fish from marinade and place on a lined baking sheet. Bake the salmon skin side down for 15-20 minutes depending on desired doneness and thickness of fish
Step 5: While the salmon is in the oven, cook rice as indicated on package
Step 6: Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add olive oil. Once oil is heated, add ginger and allow to cook for 2-3 minutes until fragrant. Add bok choy and broccoli to the pan, add 1/2 cup water and cover to steam for 2-3 minutes. Once veggies have tenderized, add garlic and allow to cook for an additional 2-3 minutes until desired doneness. Add salt and pepper to taste
Step 7: With the remaining marinade, pour in a saucepan over medium heat. Once liquid comes to a boil, bring down to a simmer and stir until sauce has reduced and thickened. About 2-3 minutes
Step 8: Remove salmon from oven and brush the teriyaki glaze evenly over the fish
Step 9: To assemble the bowl, layer in rice as the base. Add veggies, avocado and top off with the salmon. Garnish with sesame seeds and green onion and enjoy immediately!
