Teriyaki Salmon and Ramen Bowl

Ingredients

  • 1 4 oz-6oz salmon fillet boneless and skinless (if not skinless, you can remove the skin once it's cooked)
  • 1 package of instant Ramen noodles
  • 1 heaping cup of broccoli florets
  • 1 cup bell pepper cut into 1" chunks
  • 1/2 cup of sliced water chestnuts

TERIYAKI SAUCE (this will make approx. 1.5 cups)1?4 cup Kikkoman soy sauce

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 ?2 teaspoon fresh ginger minced
  • 1 ?4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 ?4 cup cold water
  • GARNISH Optional
  • Sesame seeds

Instructions

TERIYAKI SAUCESet the cornstarch and 1/4 cup of cold water aside.

  • In a saucepan, combine the rest of the ingredients and begin heating over medium heat.
  • Bring to a simmer and allow to simmer for approx. 3 minutes.
  • Mix the cornstarch and cold water in a cup until the cornstarch is dissolved.
  • Add to saucepan.
  • Reduce heat to medium-low.
  • Heat until the sauce thickens to your preference.
  • If it's too thick, you can add water to thin it out.
  • Set aside and allow to cool.
  • Once cooled to at least room temp, place the salmon fillet into a large freezer bag. Add half of the teriyaki sauce and shake it up. Allow to sit for 20-30 minutes for a quick marinade.

SALMON/VEGGIES/NOODLESPreheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

  • Bake salmon for 15 minutes, or until tender and flaky.
  • While the salmon bakes, prepare the instant Ramen noodles as per the package's instructions (seriously, if I have to walk you through that, just stop what you're doing and order a pizza :) )
  • Steam the broccoli, bell pepper, and water chestnuts for approx. 7 minutes or until tender.
  • Drain the noodles when ready, and place into a large bowl.
  • Drizzle some of the remaining teriyaki sauce onto the noodles and toss to coat.
  • Add the steamed vegetables.
  • When the salmon is ready, flake into chunks and add to the bowl.
  • Toss everything to mix.
  • Serve and garnish with sesame seeds if desired.

Notes

If you're strapped for time and don't want to marinate the salmon, simply drizzle the salmon with some teriyaki sauce before baking it and baste it every five minutes until done.
