This Salmon Teriyaki Bowl consists of brown rice, teriyaki marinated salmon that is cut into bite sized chunks, and seasoned and sautéed zucchini and corn. Everything in this dish works together so well. It all truly is a winning combination. 

The measurements given for this recipe can happily serve 2 people. If you are just making this for just yourself, that is great because you will have leftovers for your next meal. How lovely does that sound? The leftovers taste pretty much the same the next day, but the flavors are just amplified since they get the time to blend into each other even more overnight. What can be better than that? Not much more.

The salmon teriyaki marinade consists of low-sodium soy sauce for salt, garlic powder for a pungent flavor, brown sugar and honey for some sweetness, some fresh lemon juice for a little bit of acid and some chili powder and black pepper for a slight kick. Simply toss the salmon chunks around in the marinade to coat each piece. I advise you to only marinate the salmon for about 5-10 minutes as if it seeps into the fish too much, the fish will become too salty. All you want is a nice coating of teriyaki sauce.  

From there, place your salmon chunks into an ovenproof dish and pour the leftover marinade over them. Add a teaspoon of green onion if you would like to. I reserve the rest of the green onion so that I can garnish the whole bowl at the end. This fish only needs to be broiled on high for 8 minutes total. I place it on the highest rack, closest to the broiler. 

While the teriyaki salmon broils, I saute the zucchini and corn together in a large skillet over medium-high heat. This takes about 6 or 7 minutes. So, it is timed perfectly so that everything can be hot when placed in the bowl. Do not worry if your rice is not hot, but is room temperature. The salmon, zucchini, and corn will happily warm up the rice. 

Once everything is finished cooking, go ahead and bowl it up in any pretty way you like and garnish it with the rest of the green onion. The contrast of the broiled green onion and the raw green onion is a delicious and strong combination that really helps the dish to stand out even more. 

You can now certainly see just how easy this meal is to create and hopefully it makes you happy and leaves you satisfied. Enjoy your Salmon Teriyaki Bowl!
