Recipe of the Week: Teriyaki Salmon

For the Sauce
  • 1/3 cup fermented gluten-free tamari sauce (or coconut aminos for a Paleo option)
  • 1/4 cup raw honey
  • 2 tablespoons coconut vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons arrowroot flour
For the Fish and Vegetables
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, divided
  • 2 bell peppers, seeded and sliced thin
  • 16 ounces wild salmon, cut into four pieces
  • 5 green onions, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds (optional)


  1. Whisk together all of the sauce ingredients in a small saucepan. Set over low heat and stir occasionally until thickened, about 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a large sauté pan over medium heat for 2 minutes. Add 1 tablespoon coconut oil and swirl to coat. Add bell peppers to pan and cook, stirring occasionally, until spotty brown on the edges, about 5-7 minutes. Remove peppers from pan and set aside. Add remaining 1 tablespoon coconut oil to the pan and swirl to coat. Place salmon skin-side down on the skillet and let cook (without moving) until bottom is golden brown on the edges, about 3-4 minutes. Using a spatula, flip each piece of salmon over and cook (without moving) until second side is golden brown on the edges, about 3 minutes. Place each piece of salmon on a plate and drizzle with teriyaki sauce. Serve with bell peppers, cauliflower rice (if using), green onions, and sesame seeds.
