I love salmon, and for that matter, all of the other ingredients in this recipe which, as always, is why I’m sharing it with you. This bowl is a perfect option for a healthy and satisfying meal.

Whether it’s just a meal for yourself(with leftovers) or doubled for a family of four, you can’t go wrong.

Not only is this teriyaki salmon bowl delicious, but it’s also highly nutritious…

Salmon is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids essential for brain health and they may also help reduce the risk of heart disease. Edamame is a great source of plant-based protein, fiber, and various vitamins and minerals, and the red bell peppers and scallions provide an extra dose of vitamins A and C.

And to top it all off, eating salmon may be helpful in reducing stress and anxiety.

Preparing this teriyaki salmon bowl is easy and convenient. You can make the teriyaki sauce ahead of time and marinate the salmon at the last minute for a quick and effortless dinner. And if you have any leftovers, you can store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

To make this recipe even more budget-friendly, you can use frozen salmon fillets, which are often more affordable than fresh ones. You can also switch out the edamame and red bell peppers with other vegetables you have on hand, such as snow peas sliced zucchini, or broccoli.

Finally, this teriyaki salmon bowl is a versatile dish that can be customized to suit your taste preferences. You can adjust the sweetness and saltiness of the teriyaki sauce to your liking or add more spice with a pinch of red pepper flakes. You can also experiment with different grains, such as quinoa, brown rice, farro and barley and toppings, such as avocado, cucumbers or pickled ginger.

Overall, this quick and easy teriyaki salmon bowl recipe is a delicious and healthy option for any mealtime. Give it a try and enjoy a flavorful and nutritious dish in no time!

You’ll need the following ingredients for this Quick, Easy and Nutritious Teriyaki Salmon Bowl

  • ½ Tablespoon avocado oil
  • ½ cup low sodium tamari or substitute soy sauce or coconut aminos
  • ⅓ cup pineapple juice
  • 3 Tablespoons maple syrup or honey
  • 1 Tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 12 ounces salmon-2 (6 ounce) filets, wild-caught, if possible
  • 2 cups cooked grain of your choice, I used farro
  • 1 cup edamame
  • ½ cup roasted and sliced red bell peppers
  • ½ cup thinly sliced scallions
  • 1 Tablespoon toasted sesame seeds

Let’s get going…

Heat the oven to 400°F.

Grease a rimmed stainless steel sheet pan with avocado oil.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the tamari, pineapple juice, maple syrup, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, ginger, and garlic.

Pour the sauce into a small saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil, lower the heat to a simmer and whisk continually until the sauce has thickened slightly, about 5-6 minutes.

Place the salmon in a casserole dish and pour one-half of the teriyaki sauce over the fish. Turn the salmon over to make sure both sides are coated with the sauce. Allow the salmon to marinate for 20-30 minutes at room temperature.

Raw Salmon In Casserole With Teriyaki Sauce

Remove the salmon from the casserole dish and place it on the greased sheet pan. I used an iron skillet here which is fine also. You can use any oven-safe pan, but I generally prefer using a sheet pan. Discard the marinade.

Raw Salmon On Skillet

Bake the salmon in the oven for about 15-20 minutes or until it is flaky and cooked through. The cooking time will vary depending on the thickness of the fish.

Allow the salmon to cool slightly and cut into bite-size pieces.

Divide the “grain of your choice” between two serving bowls.

Top the grain in each bowl with ½ of the edamame, ½ of the roasted red peppers, and ½ of the salmon.

Drizzle the remaining teriyaki sauce over each bowl as desired.

Garnish each bowl with ½ of the sliced scallions and sesame seeds.
