So, this Sweet Spicy Teriyaki Salmon truly is the easiest (using 1 pan) recipe and the best part!!!! –
I’m swapping the pasta (which I would have normally served along with salmon) with these Zucchini Veggie Spirals from Green Giant!
I cannot begin to describe my excitement when I found the whole Green Giant Veggie Spiral range (zucchini, carrot and butternut squash) at Walmart.
I’ve recently found true love in spiralized veggies (healthy n yum) and these just take it to a whole new level (which I’ll discuss below)!!!
Ingredients for the Sweet Spicy Teriyaki Salmon:
- Salmon Fillet
- Soy Sauce
- Ginger – Garlic
- Chili Sauce
- Brown Sugar
- Veggie Spirals – I’m using zoodles
First thing First, the picture below states what you need for this absolutely easy recipe that’s filled with such amazing flavors that you’d wonder why you didn’t try it before.
How to Make Sweet Spicy Teriyaki Salmon:
I’m making the recipe even simpler by dividing it into two parts (Cooking the Fish) and (Cooking the Sauce), but everything is done in the same pan and the dish is ready in 20 minutes.
Now Teriyaki sauce has its own sweet-tart flavor, all I added was some spicy chili sauce (you can add flakes too), along with some ginger-garlic and you mix and saute everything in a pan.
The picture above is of Salmon sauteed in the sweet-spicy teriyaki sauce and all set to be served. Now come the fun and the easiest part – Veggie Spirals.
All I did was microwaved the zucchini veggies spirals for 6 minutes (as per instructions in the back) and simply transferred the steam spiral in a sieve (to remove any excess water from steaming).
That’s it!!! No chopping or taking out any special gadgets to make your own spirals. Simply microwave, drain and you’re ready for your meal.
Before you go and make this Sweet Spicy Teriyaki Salmon recipe, here are some more details on the Green Giant Veggie Spirals:
- * They are a ‘New Take On Noodles’, making them a perfect swap-in for traditional pasta.
- ** They are gluten-free and come without any sauce or seasoning, So you can prepare them just the way you like!
- *** They are made with 100% vegetables and have up to 90% fewer calories than pasta (*varieties have 65 percent to 90 percent fewer calories per serving than the leading brand of spaghetti).
Hence, they are perfect as an entrée, a side dish, or even soup, just add them to your favorite dish and enjoy whenever and wherever.
So, as soon as the spirals were nicely drained of any excess water, I simply added to our serving plate and placed the Sweet Spicy Teriyaki Salmon over it.
That’s it, our meal is ready and absolutely light and easy.
It’s perfect for a quick lunch or a family dinner later during the day.
The salmon can be cooked and stored in the fridge for utp0 2 days.
So, whenever you’re ready, just microwave the veggie spirals, salmon and your Sweet Spicy Teriyaki Salmon is ready in under 7 minutes.
As I did mention, the Green Giant Veggie Spirals come in different varieties like Carrot, Zucchini, and Butternut Squash, so I’m planning another recipe very soon – Stay Tuned!
