When we eat salmon - and we eat it a lot - almost always Carson throws it on the grill (with this seasoning, yum). While we obviously love it, doing the same thing can feel redundant so I've been searching for ways to shake up our salmon routine. Ugh, I feel really old when I say things like "shake up our salmon routine." Anyway. Via the world wide web, I've been seeing a lot of salmon bowls lately, so I decide to create my own. It came out great and was very easy to throw together! Can I just tell you what I did instead of writing a recipe? Pleeeeeeease? Thanks, I'm tired.
I preheated my oven to 400 degrees. About 30 minutes prior to baking my salmon, I threw it in a plastic bag with about a cup of my favorite teriyaki sauce to marinate. While those flavors blended together in the fridge, I tossed my washed and chopped kale in about a teaspoon of sesame oil and sprinkled it with salt. I placed that on a baking sheet lined with foil, and baked for 10-15 minutes, then I set it aside in a bowl. When I was ready to bake the salmon, I placed it on that same baking sheet and baked it for about 10 minutes. While that was baking, I sautéed some shiitake mushrooms in 1 tbsp olive oil and 1 tsp sesame oil until golden brown. I served the fish, mushrooms and kale with some cooked brown rice and avocado.
By the way, this would have been even more yummy with Sriracha drizzled over the top but I couldn't find my Sriracha WHO STOLE MY SRIRACHA?! I'm blaming you.
