Healthy Salmon Veggie Bowl

Ever since I started to eat salmon a year ago, I’ve been really experimenting with what different dishes. This was one of my favorite meals so far.

This dish is filled with so many good nutrients, protein and lots of veggies. You can modify it with any vegetables that you have on hand or that you like.

Healthy Salmon Veggie Bowl
(2 Servings)

Ingredients:

Salmon:
2 Alaskan Salmon pieces, with skin on
1/2 lemon
1 T butter
2 t garlic powder
2 t onion powder
1 t paprika

Roasted Pepper & Sweet Potato
1 large red pepper, sliced
1 large sweet potato, diced
1 T olive oil
2 t chili powder
2 t garlic powder
2 t onion powder
2 t salt
2 t pepper

Cauliflower “Fried” Rice
2 cups cauliflower rice ( I buy already riced or frozen)
2 T frozen peas
2 T frozen Corn
1/2 small onion, diced
1/2 T olive oil
2 t garlic powder
2 t onion powder
2 t soy sauce

Toppings:
1 Green Onion, sliced

Directions: Preheat oven 375°. Add sliced red pepper and diced sweet potato to a oven safe dish in a flat layer. Keep separate. Drizzle with olive oil and season with spices above. Mix well to coat. In a second oven safe dish add in the salmon pieces. Season the fish with above seasonings, drizzle with some lemon juice and add half tablespoon of butter to the top of the pieces of fish. Add both pans to the oven and cook 30-35 minutes. Half way through flip the sweet potatoes and peppers.

While the veggies and salmon are cooking, next we start the cauliflower “fried” rice. Heat a medium saute pan on medium high heat. After the pan heats up add in the olive oil and let heat 2 minutes. Add in the diced onion and cook for 3 minutes. Next add in the peas and corn and cook 3 minutes. Add in the cauliflower rice, seasoning and soy sauce and cook 10-12 minutes stirring often. Cook until your preferred tenderness.

Cook the salmon until the internal temperature reads 145°. Once done, remove from oven and squeeze some lemon over the top.

To assemble the bowl add in the cauliflower “fried” rice, a piece of salmon, some sweet potatoes and red peppers and top with sliced green onions. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Notes: You can use any veggies you have on hand, zucchini, corn, potatoes, broccoli, the list goes on and on. If you prefer the salmon a little under, cook to your desired temperature. Me, I need mine completely done. The seasonings are to taste, if you want more salt, add it if you want no salt omit it. This will also work well with other proteins. Chicken breast, pork tenderloin, other fish or even shrimp.
