Teriyaki Salmon:

Salmon is naturally loaded full of good things for you and good flavor, so you don’t need to add much to it! Less is more in this instance.


For the teriyaki salmon:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. In a small bowl, whisk together the teriyaki sauce, soy sauce, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and evenly place the salmon fillets on the prepared baking sheet.
  2. Evenly coat each salmon filet with the prepared teriyaki sauce, saving about 1/3 of it for basting while the salmon is baking. Bake the salmon for about 5 minutes, baste with the remaining teriyaki sauce and then bake for another 10 minutes more or until the salmon is cooked through.

For the cauliflower fried rice:

  1. While the salmon is baking, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add in the garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add in the riced cauliflower and sauté for several minutes. Add in the edamame and carrots and stir to combine. Sauté for several minutes more.
  2. Add in the soy sauce and chopped green onion and toss to combine. Sauté for a couple of minutes more, or until the vegetables are heated and cooked through.


  1. Serve the salmon over a bed of the cauliflower rice, garnish with desired toppings such as green onion, soft boiled eggs, or crispy wontons. Enjoy!
