My healthy homemade teriyaki sauce recipe makes this salmon bowl SO delicious! The sauce has only 7 ingredients & you'll want it on everything!
I truly love a great bowl recipe and this Teriyaki Salmon Bowl from our January meal plans is one of my new favorite go to recipes. Nothing is better than marrying multiple flavors and textures in one dish. It's also a great way to get a variety of nutrients in as well.
The only items you're cooking in this bowl is the grain and the salmon…the veggies are raw so you can pick and choose the vegetables you love. If you're not a big fan of raw veggies this recipe works really well by lightly steaming or sauteing the veggies. You can also use different grains like quinoa or rice noodles as well!
Don't eat grains? No worries…this dish pairs nicely with cauliflower rice and zucchini noodles or sweet potato noodles. Heck…try them all and see which one's your fav! Personally…I'm partial to the cauli rice.
