Ingredients
  • INGREDIENTS:
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • ¼ cup soy sauce (I used Gluten Free)
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 salmon filets
  • FOR THE SRIRACHA CREAM SAUCE:
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 2-3 tablespoons Sriracha
  • 1½ tablespoons honey
  • FOR THE SESAME GARLIC BROCCOLI:
  • 1 Head Broccoli, florets removed
  • 1 Tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 cloves garlic sliced
  • salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Let’s first start with the Sriracha cream sauce by combining some mayo, Sriracha and honey. I added about 3 tablespoons Sriracha since I like food super spicy. Then go ahead and take a swim in this sauce. I won’t judge. This is the part of the recipe I loved!
  2. Once you’re done with your Sriracha cream sauce swim, it’s time to make the teriyaki marinade. Combine the soy sauce, ginger, garlic powder, honey and 1 cup water over medium heat until it comes to a simmer.
  3. Combine the cornstarch and ¼ cup water and add it to this marinade so it gets nice and thick. You want it thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Let the teriyaki marinade cool a bit before you combine it with the salmon. (You want it cool enough so that you won't start cooking the salmon) Place the marinating salmon in the fridge for about 30 minutes to overnight. I made mine in the morning before work. The longer the better.
  4. Then we’re going to bake it at 400 degrees F for about 20 minutes. Don’t let it overcook! The salmon should be flaky and pull apart easily with a fork
  5. Once your salmon comes out of the oven, serve it immediately on a bed of white rice with a liberal drizzle of the Sriracha cream sauce. Feel free to garnish it a bit if you’d like. Or you can just dig in and devour this like there’s no tomorrow. I actually ate this not only at dinner, but I also took it to work for lunch. Thats right kids it passed the "lunch box test". If I had to eat salmon in the future this would be my go to recipe. If you are a non salmon eater such as myself this is one dish you might just want to risk making who knows it might just change your mind about eating salmon.
