Ingredients (For one serving – feel free to adjust amounts as you see fit):

5oz Raw Salmon Fillet

15 grams of shredded carrots

10 grams of shredded red cabbage

1oz of diced Red Bell Pepper

26 grams of canned sliced water chestnuts

28 grams of canned baby corn

35 grams of shelled edamame

1 small baby bok choy – cut in strips -1tbsp soy sauce

1/2tbsp of rice wine vinegar

3tsp of sesame oil – Divided

1/2tsp Fresh grated ginger – Divided

1/2tsp Fresh minced garlic – Divided

Fresh ground pepper

Half a lemon

Pinch of Cornstarch

Green onion/sesame (optional garnish)

 

Directions: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. While oven is preheating, place salmon in a bowl & squeeze half a lemon over it. Allow it so sit until oven is warm. Place on foil lined baking sheet, season with black pepper and bake 12-15 minutes depending on the size of your fillet. I added about a 1/2tsp of sesame oil on top of the salmon for the last 5 minutes of cooking time. While the salmon is cooking mix soy sauce with about 1.5tsp of sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, 1/4 tsp of minced garlic and 1/4tsp grated ginger. I heated this up in the microwave for about 20 seconds and added in a little cornstarch to thicken the sauce. Set aside. Get all of your vegetables ready. You can save a lot of time by using pre-shredded carrot & cabbage. When salmon is done, remove from oven. Allow to rest while you heat the remaining tsp of sesame oil over medium heat. Add the rest of garlic & ginger. Sautee for a minute or so and add in all of the vegetables except the bok choy/edamame. Cook another minute or two until carrots are softened and then finally add in edamame & bok choy until the leaves are wilted. Plate vegetables and salmon and then quickly heat up the sauce again in the microwave for about 15-20 seconds and pour over salmon/vegetables. Optional – garnish with some sesame seeds & green onion
