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!

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!

This teriyaki salmon dish comes together quickly for a healthy and delicious weeknight meal. Bake the salmon and broccoli together, then serve in a bowl with rice, veggies and creamy avocado.


Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup teriyaki sauce (use recipe below or San-J Teriyaki)
  • 2 (4-ounce) salmon fillets
  • 3 cups chopped broccoli florets
  • 1/2 Tablespoon avocado or melted coconut oil
  • 1 cup cooked white or brown rice
  • 1 cup shredded red cabbage
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/2 bunch green onions, chopped
  • 1/2 avocado, quartered and sliced

Homemade Teriyaki Sauce

  • 1 Tablespoon avocado oil
  • ¼ cup low sodium tamari (or soy sauce)
  • ½ Tablespoon maple syrup
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon fresh ginger, grated or minced

Instructions

  1. Make homemade teriyaki sauce (if using) by whisking together all ingredients in a small bowl.
  2. In a shallow baking dish, pour 1/4 cup of the teriyaki sauce over salmon fillets and use a spoon to make sure each piece is coated. Allow to marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, but up to four hours. Meanwhile toss chopped broccoli with oil and a bit of sea salt.
  3. Preheat oven to 425ºF and lightly grease a baking sheet.
  4. Place marinated salmon fillets (skin side down) on one half of the prepared baking sheet and add broccoli to the other half.
  5. Bake until the salmon is cooked through and flakes easily and broccoli is roasted, about 15-20 minutes. Cook or reheat rice while the salmon and broccoli are baking.
  6. Grab two bowls, add rice and top each with a fillet of salmon, cabbage, carrots, green onions, avocado, a squeeze of lime and a drizzle of remaining teriyaki sauce. Top each salmon filet with a sprinkle of sesame seeds, if using. Serve immediately.

      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!

      I make this almost every week! My boyfriend is just in love with this dish, too. Honestly, I could eat this every day. It’s the perfect comforting and healthy meal + it makes fantastic leftovers the next day, too! 🙂

      This is one of my top fav dinners to make for girls night. I added mango salsa from Whole Foods and sliced almonds. Highly suggest !

      OH. EM. GEE.

      I made these last night and it was out of this world. I forget to pull out the Salmon earlier and marinate them, so I only let it marinate for 30 minutes, but it was still outstanding. However, when I marinated them I had them in a pyrex dish and I ended up just sticking that whole thing in the oven to allow them to cook in the juice. I am sharing this with everyone!

      I’m not a big fan of teriyaki, but I love how easily this comes together! I’ll just use a different sauce.
