Roasted Salmon Teriyaki with Broccoli

No need for a bottled sauce — here, you can make a quick, zesty teriyaki using orange juice, ginger and a few pantry staples. The recipe makes enough to coat the fish before roasting with plenty left over for drizzling and dipping at the table. (Tasty tip: Try it on the broccoli!)

Cruciferous Crusader

Consuming sulfur-rich veggies like broccoli helps the body produce glutathione, a powerful antioxidant that can help reduce inflammation and protect against oxidative damage in the body. It’s particularly important for those with autoimmune disorders, who are shown to have a reduced glutathione status.

  • 1 large head broccoli (about 1¼ lb), cut into small florets, stems peeled and sliced

  • 2 green onions, sliced, white/light green and dark green parts divided

  • 3 tbsp avocado oil, divided

  • ½ tsp sea salt, divided

  • ½ tsp ground black pepper, divided

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 tsp minced fresh ginger

  • 1/3 cup coconut aminos

  • 1 tbsp fresh orange juice

  • 1½ tsp raw honey

  • ½ tsp arrowroot (TRY: Bob's Red Mill Arrowroot Starch)

  • 4 4-oz skin-on wild salmon fillets, patted dry


1. Preheat oven to 400ºF; place 2 baking sheets in oven as it heats. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, toss together broccoli florets and stems, white and light green parts of onions, 1 tbsp oil, 1/4 tsp salt and 1/8 tsp pepper. Remove one of the hot pans from oven and spread broccoli mixture on top. Return to oven and roast, stirring once, for 10 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, in a small, unheated skillet, combine 1 tbsp oil, garlic and ginger; warm on medium-low. When mixture begins to sizzle, cook for 30 seconds, then immediately whisk in coconut aminos, orange juice and honey. Whisk arrowroot with 2 tsp water until smooth; whisk into sauce. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and cook, whisking, until thickened, about 1 minute. Season with 1/8 tsp pepper. Transfer to 2 small bowls.

3. Rub salmon with remaining 1 tbsp oil; sprinkle with remaining 1/4 tsp each salt and pepper. Remove unused hot pan from oven. Place salmon, skin side down, on pan; brush tops of fillets with sauce from one of the bowls, discarding remaining sauce from that bowl. Roast until salmon flakes easily with a fork and broccoli is tender and lightly browned, 10 to 12 minutes. Divide broccoli mixture among 4 plates; arrange salmon over top and sprinkle with reserved dark green parts of onions. Serve with remaining sauce on the side.
