Ingredient Notes

  • Salmon – when it comes to fish, I always go for wild caught if at all possible but farm-raised works too.
  • Teriyaki sauce – I like to make my own as it uses ingredients I usually have in the pantry/fridge but you are welcome to buy store-bought.
  • Vegetables – I love using a combination of colors and crunch which is why I go with peppers, carrots and green beans.

Ingredient Swaps

This salmon stir fry is super customizable. Some variations include:

  • I use low-sodium soy sauce as the base for the teriyaki sauce, but if you need a gluten-free option, tamari is a good substitute.
  • I like light brown sugar for the added sweetness, but granulated sugar or more honey works too.
  • You really can mix and match the vegetables you use. Some other options include sugar snap peas, mushrooms or spicier peppers.

While the salmon is marinating, cook the veggies with some oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Remove the veggies from the skillet and set aside.

Add remaining oil and cook the salmon over medium heat for 2-3 minutes per side.

Add the sauce and veggies and cook for another 2-3 minutes or until the salmon is done.


Pro Tips/Recipe Notes

  • Use wild salmon when possible. It is healthier for you and just tastes better.
  • Do not stir around the salmon or it will break. You know you can flip when it easily comes off the pan.
  • You know the salmon is done when it is opaque and easily flakes.
  • If you don’t have fresh ginger, replace with ½ teaspoon of dried ginger.
  • If you like some heat, add ¼ to ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes.
