Everyone has one grocery store that they tend to gravitate towards, and for me, that is Publix. I am the definition of a Publix snob and pretty much refuse to shop elsewhere. With that said, they have at least one type of fresh fish on sale every week, and this week it’s my favorite – salmon. So, of course, I took this as an opportunity to create a tasty and healthy recipe for dinner this week. The result was a FLAVOR EXPLOSION. Also, the salmon fillets are definitely big enough to provide two servings each, especially when paired with the brown rice and roasted veggies.
Asian Salmon Veggie Bowl
2 salmon fillets
- 2 cups cooked brown rice
- 1 large head of broccoli, cut into florets
- 1 bunch asparagus, chopped
- 1/2 yellow onion, sliced into large chunks
- olive oil
- red pepper flakes
- garlic powder
- salt and pepper to taste
For the marinade: 2 Tbs soy sauce, 1 Tbs honey, 1 Tbs Sriracha, 1 Tbs minced garlic
*Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
First, prepare your salmon and marinade. Salt and pepper both sides of salmon and place in a baking dish. Combine soy sauce, honey, Sriracha, and minced garlic.
Pour marinade over salmon and allow to marinate for 30 minutes.
Next, chop the veggies (broccoli, asparagus, onion) and toss them in olive oil, red pepper flakes, garlic powder, and s&p.
Roast the veggies for approximately 15 minutes, tossing halfway through.
Turn down the oven to 375 degrees.
Heat a pan to medium-high heat, and sear salmon (flesh side first) for 1 minute and an additional 30 seconds on skin side.
Pour additional marinade into skillet. Place the skillet (if it’s oven safe) into the oven and bake for approximately 13 minutes until cooked through but not dry.
Pop your rice into the microwave for 3 minutes (if you happen to buy the Trader Joe’s frozen kind… which is phenomenal by the way). If you’re not using instant, you’ll need to go ahead and prepare the rice prior to everything else.
Portion out 1/2 cup cooked rice, 1 cup roasted veggies, and 1/2 salmon fillet and place in a bowl. I suggest topping with additional soy sauce and Sriracha for some extra flavor.
SO, SO GOOD.
