This Salmon is paired with classic Teriyaki. It’s salty and smooth and a great sauce with not only Salmon but pretty much anything else as well. I’ve made this Salmon Teriyaki with a Pickled Ginger Sesame Slaw. It’s unbelievably good.
Make this Salmon Teriyaki, Pickled Ginger Sesame Slaw because it really is a treat. I have adjusted the Teriyaki a little. It normally has sugar but I have substituted that with honey.
I’m cooking this for my family, it is simple but quick and really very healthy and I wanted to focus on that after finding my sister has a chronic problem with cholesterol. It is not something that I have ever considered as mine seems to be OK (by some miracle).
When I found out I did a little digging around for some advice and found this article on lowering your cholesterol, cause if you are like me and haven’t needed to consider it before it is really helpful. Here’s what I found out……
Cholesterol is a type of fat required for good health. It is a normal component of most body tissues, yet when there are high blood levels of cholesterol it can increase the risk of developing health issues (e.g. heart disease, gallstones, chest and leg pain). You can stay healthy by reducing saturated and trans fats (animal fats, pastries, pies). You have probably guessed that fish, fruit vegetables and grains, in other words, fibre is what you should be eating.
Mostly high blood cholesterol is discovered with a simple blood test but in some cases people only find out when an illness is already in existence. So get yours checked like my sister did. You never know.
Now, Soy Sauce can be very salty and that isn’t really desirable either but the best thing about Teriyaki is you need so little of it to give your food a flavour hit. The slightly salty sauce is paired with a crunchy fibre rich Asian Pickled Ginger Slaw that has a hint of Sesame and one of my loves… pickled ginger. It’s heavenly as Salmon Teriyaki.
I wondered if the salad alone would be enough for the ravenous family so I whipped up some Cauliflower Rice (more secret fibre). But hey, you could serve yours with some Jasmine or Brown Rice.
The finer you slice your cabbage the better. It will shrink down and gather up more of the dressing. Sprinkle a little salt onto the undressed cabbage and stir through, then dress it. It will make all the difference.
