Prep

  1. Cauliflower rice - This makes enough for 2 meals. Chop off florets. Pulse in a food processor until it reaches a rice-like consistency. Place cauliflower into a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 5 minutes, stirring midway through. Mix in ghee and season to taste with salt and pepper. (Can be done up to 4 days ahead)
  2. Make teriyaki sauce - Mince garlic. Combine garlic, aminos, rice vinegar, first part of water, and honey in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil. Mix arrowroot powder with second part of water (making sure it’s cold). Pour arrowroot mixture into saucepan and simmer until sauce has thickened. Remove from heat and stir in toasted sesame oil. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  3. Salmon - Rinse and pat dry and place into a parchment-lined baking pan.
  4. Brussels sprouts - Trim off stems and halve or quarter (halve for smaller brussels sprouts, quarter for larger ones). (Can be done up to 4 days ahead)

Make

  1. Heat oven to 425F / 218C. Situate racks so brussels sprouts and salmon can both fit.
  2. Toss brussels sprouts with cooking oil and some salt and pepper. Spread out onto a sheet pan and roast for 20 to 25 minutes, shaking once.
  3. Coat salmon with first part of teriyaki sauce. Bake for 15 to 25 minutes, depending on thickness of the salmon and your desired doneness (1 ½” / 3.75cm thick salmon takes about 20 minutes).
  4. Chop cilantro while salmon and brussels sprouts cook.
  5. Toss brussels sprouts with teriyaki sauce and sesame seeds fresh out of the oven.
  6. Sprinkle baked salmon with sesame seeds. Serve with rest of the teriyaki sauce, cilantro, lemon wedges, and brussels sprouts and cauliflower rice (save half for Wednesday’s dinner) on the side.

I used asparagus since that's what I had on hand. Overall it was good but not my absolute favorite CS salmon.

I made the salmon with teriyaki and paired it with mashed potatoes and green beans. The salmon was so yummy!

The sauce was not as tasty as the teriyaki sauce with pork meatballs.

I replaced brussel sprouts with rocket. The teriyaki sauce was delicious though it was the first time I used cornstarch so I need to figure out how to prevent grains (I filtered the sauce using a sieve).

I only made the salmon and paired it with brussel sprouts (the way we normally season/eat them) and roasted crispy russet potatoes. It was very good and we loved the sauce! Sauce turned out perfectly because I read the reviews and halved the cornstarch.
