15 minute Teriyaki Salmon

Happy Be-lated Memorial Day!!  Who needs a healthy dinner idea to get back on track after the holiday weekend of barbecuing, eating sweets, and having one too many cocktails?!   My hand is raised HIGH!  We had a wonderful weekend… 3 out of our 4 day weekend was spent at the pool.  I would say relaxing… but let’s be honest… There’s no such thing as relaxing with a 20 month old at the pool!  Can we just take a minute and thank God for the person(s) that created a life vest for kids?!  Swimming lessons for our princess are definitely coming soon!  Thankfully she enjoyed wearing the life vest, so I wasn’t too terribly panicky and we were able to have some good fun in the sun!

Now, our holiday weekend is over with and I need a MAJOR workout (and to get back on track with my eating habits).  Soooooo, I have the perfect meal for you!  It’s full of veggies and packed with omega 3s.  AND… to make life even better – it’s super quick and easy to make!

Before you start making this salmon, decide what veggies/carbs you’re serving with it, and get that going first.  This salmon dish cooks super quick!  Don’t forget:  make sure you buy WILD salmon!!!  Farm-raised is full of garbage your body doesn’t need.

When you need a SUPER QUICK and EASY meal to make for dinner, make THIS!

Ingredients:

  • 2 – 6 oz pieces wild salmon
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

Teriyaki Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1-2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • pinch of cayenne, optional
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Combine ALL of the Teriyaki Sauce ingredients and whisk together until the ginger dissolves.  Set aside.
  2. Heat up a saute pan on medium-high heat.  Add the olive oil.  Once hot, add the salmon skin-side-down.  Cook for 2 – 3 minutes and flip it.
  3. Once you flip the salmon, add the Teriyaki Sauce, reduce the heat to low.  Let it cook for 2 – 3 more minutes.
  4. If you want to thicken the sauce, remove the salmon from the pan (cover to keep it warm) and bring the sauce to a boil on high heat for a couple minutes.  Reduce the heat back to low and add the salmon back to the pan.  Careful not to over cook it!  Dried out salmon is no bueno.  😉  I served my Teriyaki Salmon with my Cauli-Rice recipe… It was simple and we were completely satisfied!
