Quick honey soy salmon bowl (GF, DF)

Honey soy salmon is a super simple recipe and ready in just fifteen minutes if you use white rice. The salmon is served with white rice, topped with toasted coconut, and edamame beans from the freezer.

It is such a quick and easy recipe and oh so satisfying to have a bowl of food you can just sit on the couch with and watch cartoons. While I rarely eat dinner on the couch it does make for a nice change sometimes after a busy and stressful day.

What you’ll need

Salmon responsibly sourced salmon is rich in omega fatty acids. It’s a great addition to your diet and tastes amazing. I buy mine the day I use it to ensure maximum freshness. Try to get pieces of a similar size so that they all cook evenly.

Rice while I used white rice for the photoshoot these days I tend to opt for brown rice. This is because brown rice has a lower GI and has more fibre.

Edamame a protein-rich bean, I keep these in the freezer as a last minute addition to many meals (see my quinoa salad). Quick and easy to prepare they enhance the vibe in this Japanese-inspired dish.

Garnishes for this recipe I used toasted coconut, all you need to do is put some desiccated coconut in a frying pan on medium for a few minutes until the coconut becomes aromatic and starts to brown. Sesame seeds are a great item to have in the pantry as a garnish to give that dining-out touch.
