As the weather gets warmer, I am more inclined to get out of the kitchen when cooking. Salmon is one of my fiance’s favorite foods, so I when it is on sale at our local supermarket, I jump on it!
If you don’t have a grill, this could also be done on the stovetop. Cook times are about the same, just make sure that you use a non-stick skillet with a mist of olive oil.
2 Pieces of Salmon Filet
1/2 cup Teriyaki Sauce
2 Garlic Cloves – Minced
1 tsp. Seasame Seeds
1/2 tsp. Red Pepper Flakes
1 tsp. Grated Ginger
1 Head of Broccoli – washed and cut into bite size pieces
1 Can Sliced Water Chestnuts – drained and rised
1. In a small bowl, create the marinade by wisking together teriyaki, garlic, seasame seeds, red pepper flakes, and ginger. Pour the marinade in a ziplock bag with the salmon and refrigerate for at least an hour.
2. Preheat the grill to medium high heat. Spray cooking spray on the grates so that the salmon does not stick. Remove salmon from the marinade (SAVE THE MARINADE) and grill for 4 minutes on each side.
3. While the salmon is cooking, in a wok over high heat, stir together the remaining marinade with the broccoli and water chestnuts. Cook until broccoli is tender.
4. Plate the stir fry veggies with the grilled salmon on top and enjoy!
