How to Make Healthy Baked Salmon
First, preheat your oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a bowl, stir together honey, soy sauce, orange juice, ginger, garlic and chili pepper until mixed. Set aside.
Next, you’ll want to place green beans and carrots in a separate bowl. Coat with coconut oil. Season lightly with salt and pepper and toss.
After this, spread salmon filets and mixed vegetables across your baking sheet.
Then you’ll want to pour teriyaki sauce over salmon until coated thoroughly. Drizzle the rest of the sauce over your veggies.
Finally, you’ll then bake it for 12-15 minutes, until the inside of the salmon has just begun to turn pink. While the salmon bakes, slice your green onions, if you’re using them. Garnish salmon with sesame seeds and green onions if desired. Serve immediately.
Serve it with rice or by itself for a delightful easy dinner.
