I gotta be honest, Salmon is my favorite protein. I love it baked, I love it fried, I love it poached, I love it raw. BUT my current obsession is crispy salmon. Think crispy skin, crispy & charred edges all in less than 10 minutes.
You put the salmon in the pan, then move on to pull together the rest of dinner. 10 minutes later you have a delicious dish! Check out this quick 15 second tutorial on how to make crispy salmon (as seen on my Instagram Reels).
This crispy salmon technique can be used for pretty much any salmon! You can do it plain, with a squeeze of lemon and dill, with salt pepper and garlic powder... options are endless!
Now that you know how to make the crispiest salmon ever, let's get into the recipe!
TERIYAKI SALMON BOWL
Cooking time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes (includes marinating time)
1 lb of salmon
2 packets Trader Joes frozen microwavable white rice (3 minutes in the microwave & it's ready)
3 cups broccoli florets, fresh or frozen
3/4 cup scallions, chopped
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1/4 cup coconut aminos OR soy sauce OR tamari
1 tablespoon lime juice
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon salt 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
Combine the ingredients for the glaze then pour it over the salmon. If I remember early enough, I like to do this in a Tupperware container so it can marinate for a few hours. But honestly, it'll work even if it only marinates for 20 minutes. You could do this the night before and let it sit in the glaze for a whole 24 hours!
Next, remove salmon from fridge & let it sit at room temp for 10 mins.
Heat 1 tablespoon of coconut oil in a large skillet over medium to high heat.
Once the skillet is hot, place the salmon skin side up & cook for 5 minutes on one side. Flip & cook for another 4 minutes on the other side until cooked through.
I like to make the sides while the salmon is cooking! Place broccoli in a steamer for about 5 minutes until slightly cooked. Obviously if you're using frozen this may take a bit longer.
Heat the white rice in the microwave for 3 minutes.
Assemble the bowl. Begin with the white rice, place the salmon on top, then add your steamed broccoli. I love adding chopped green onions and sesame seeds on top! Enjoy with additional soy sauce or coconut aminos!
