GRILLED TERIYAKI SALMON BOWLS

Ingredients
  • 4 fillets salmon (of about equal size)

For the teriyaki sauce:
  • 1/2 cup coconut aminos
  • 2 dates, pitted and soaked in warm water for 10-15 minutes then drained
  • 1.5 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger, grated on a microplane
  • 1 tsp garlic powder

For the rest of the bowls:
  • 1 lb green beans, trimmed
  • 1/2 bunch asparagus, bottoms trimmed and cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil

Sea salt and pepper
  • 4 cups greens
  • 1 cup cauliflower rice or white rice (cauli rice for Whole30)
  • 1/4 cup green onion, chopped (optional garnish)
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds (optional garnish)

Instructions
  • Heat grill to medium-high heat, and oil grill grate. On a Traeger, heat to 400° Fahrenheit. 
  • Cut veggies and place on a grill pan. Drizzle with avocado oil and season with sea salt and pepper to taste.  Set aside.
  • Place all of the sauce ingredients in a blender or food processor and run continuously to combine all the ingredients until smooth. Stop to scrape sides down as needed and restart. 
  • Place sauce in a small sauce pan and heat over low heat, stirring occasionally, while the rest of the meal cooks. 
  • Season salmon with salt and pepper and place flesh side down on the grill. Grill for 8 minutes and carefully flip. Cook until salmon is done, about 6 more minutes. Add the veggies to the grill at the same time as the salmon. Toss them around when you flip the salmon. 
  • After you flip the salmon, heat up cauliflower rice (or white rice). To cook cauliflower rice, just heat up in a skillet with a little oil and season to taste with salt and pepper.   
  • Once salmon is done, carefully remove salmon and veggies from grill.
  • Assemble your bowls. Add a base of greens, cauliflower or white rice, your salmon, veggies, and drizzle sauce over everything. Garnish with green onion and sesame seeds. Enjoy!
