Ingredients

  • 1 large salmon fillet (or 4 6-ounce salmon fillets)
  • 2 bell peppers (red or green), chopped (see note)
  • 1/2 white or red onion, chopped
  • 1 cup chopped or sliced carrots
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 1/2 cups of your favorite teriyaki sauce OR use my favorite recipe below

Teriyaki Sauce

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 cup cold water + 2 tablespoons corn starch
  • 2 teaspoons sesame seeds

Meal Prep

  • 4 resealable containers
  • 2-3 cups steamed white rice

Instructions

Teriyaki Sauce

  • Combine water, soy sauce, garlic, ginger, brown sugar, and honey in a medium sauce pan and whisk to combine. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. 
  • Stir together cold water and corn starch until dissolved, then whisk into boiling sauce and reduce heat to medium-low. Remove from heat, stir in sesame seeds, and allow to cool while you prepare the veggies and salmon.

Salmon and Veggies

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease a large baking sheet and arrange salmon in the center. Combine vegetables in a large bowl along with oil. Toss to coat. 
  • Transfer to baking sheet arranging the vegetables so that they are around but not on top of the salmon. Season vegetables and salmon with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Drizzle 2/3 of the sauce over the salmon and veggies. Bake for 15-20 minutes until salmon is flaky and tender and veggies are easily pierced with a fork. Steam/cook the rice while the salmon is baking.
  • Drizzle with remaining sauce and serve immediately OR follow next step for meal prep.

For Meal Prep:

  • Divide rice, salmon, and veggies between four resealable containers and teriyaki sauce in it's own small container. Refrigerate for up to 1 week. To reheat, simply remove the lid from the containers and microwave for 2-4 minutes until hot throughout. (See tip) Serve with reheated remaining teriyaki sauce.

Notes

You can easily swap out any of these suggested veggies for your favorites. I have tried this recipe with cauliflower, asparagus, and zucchini as well and they are all delicious and work perfectly.
Pro Tip for reheating: I highly recommend investing in an inexpensive plastic splatter guard (sold at almost any grocery store like Walmart, Target, etc) and using whenever you are reheating, especially for a dish like this one - not only will it keep your microwave from getting messy, it will also act as a bit of a steamer and keep a lot of the natural moisture in the food so it doesn't get dried out.
