Teriyaki Glaze

The honey teriyaki sauce helps to make the salmon extra moist and gives it so much flavor. It has that perfect mixture of both sweet and savory that not only compliments the salmon, but pairs well with the mixed vegetables and cauliflower rice. You will be licking your silverware and plate clean with this meal. That is – if you’re the plate-licking type. We all are at some point, aren’t we?

Author: Samantha Buckner

Ingredients:

  • 4 (6 oz.) salmon filets (skinless)
  • 1 green onion (finely chopped, for garnishing)
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds (for garnishing)

Honey Teriyaki Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 cup water
  • 7 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 tbsp water (for cornstarch)

Vegetables:

  • 1 tbsp minced garlic (approximately 3 cloves)
  • 2 bell peppers (thinly sliced)
  • 1/2 yellow onion (thinly sliced)
  • 2 cups frozen broccoli
  • 2 tbsp olive oil (divided)
  • salt and pepper (to taste, optional)
  • 2 (10 oz.) bags of frozen cauliflower rice (or sub 2 cups of homemade)

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and spray an 8x8 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Place a small saucepan over medium heat and combine low-sodium soy sauce, water, honey, light brown sugar, and garlic powder. Bring sauce to a slight boil - continuously whisking until thoroughly mixed.
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine the cornstarch and water. Thoroughly mix to make sure it is not clumpy. Once mixed, combine with the teriyaki sauce. Whisk until the sauce has thickened.
  • Remove from heat and set aside to cool to room temperature.
  • Place the salmon filets in the baking dish and top with 1 cup of the teriyaki sauce. Save the rest for additional sauce for the vegetables and cauliflower rice.
  • Bake until the fish flakes with a fork - approximately 12-14 minutes. Time will be dependent on how thickly cut the filets are.
  • While the salmon is baking, place a non-stick pan over medium heat with 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Once the oil has heated, add the sliced peppers and onions. Sauté until the peppers have softened, approximately 3-4 minutes. Add the minced garlic and sauté approximately 1-2 minutes.
  • Once the garlic is fragrant - add the remaining teriyaki sauce to the pan and mix well to coat and re-warm.
  • While the peppers and onions are sautéing, cook the cauliflower rice and broccoli. If frozen - microwave. If using raw - see notes.
  • Serve salmon immediately with cauliflower rice, broccoli, and sautéed veggies.
  • Garnish with sesame seeds and chopped scallions.

Notes:

Broccoli:
  • You can use frozen broccoli or raw broccoli. If using raw broccoli, I recommend steaming broccoli in a pan until fork-tender. Approximately 8-10 minutes.
Cauliflower Rice:
  • You can use frozen cauliflower rice or homemade cauliflower rice with this recipe. If using homemade, saute cauliflower rice while the peppers are cooking. I recommend 1 tbsp of oil per 1 cup of cauliflower rice. You can add additional flavor by swapping for butter or seasoning with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
  • If you're new to making cauliflower rice, I recommend checking out my How To Make and Freeze Cauliflower Rice post for directions.
