Let’s talk about this heart-healthy dinner recipe you’ll want to make time and time again — baked teriyaki salmon with roasted broccoli, freshly grated carrots, red cabbage and creamy avocado. The salmon and broccoli are roasted together on one sheet pan for easy clean-up. If you line the pan with parchment, there’s almost no clean-up involved! And if you marinate the salmon and make your rice ahead of time, the dish comes together in about 20 minutes! Perfect for a weeknight meal when you need to get dinner on the table fast.

How to Make Teriyaki Salmon

If you’re making homemade teriyaki sauce, start by whisking together all of the ingredients in a small bowl. In a shallow baking dish, pour 1/4 cup of the teriyaki sauce over the salmon fillets. I like to spoon the sauce over the salmon to make sure each piece is coated really well!! Let the salmon marinate in the fridge for at least 30 minutes but up to four hours. While your salmon is marinating, toss the chopped broccoli with oil and a little bit of salt.

Prep a baking sheet by lightly greasing. Place the marinated salmon skin side down on one half of the baking sheet and add the broccoli to the other half. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the salmon is cooked through and the broccoli is roasted.

While your salmon and broccoli bakes, cook your rice. Then it’s time to assemble! Add rice to the bowl and add salmon, roasted broccoli, cabbage, carrots, avocado, a squeeze of lime and a drizzle of the remaining teriyaki sauce. Garnish with green onion and sesame seeds and serve!

      My daughter asked for Teriyaki Salmon and this is the first recipe that came up. We followed the recipe exactly (except I added a little extra maple syrup), and used brown rice. It was truly amazing! I couldn’t believe how well the avocado went with everything. I’ll be making this regularly!

      The first time I made this my whole family told me I could make this every week and they’d be happy. I didn’t make it the next week and they all complained! So looks like it will be on our weekly menu for a while. Good thing it’s so healthy and super easy to make!
