Salmon and broccoli are both super foods that energize the mind and body and provide them with key nutrients and minerals, essential for your health, which is one of the reasons we love pairing the two together. This Baked Teriyaki Salmon with A Sriracha Cream Drizzle does exactly that- combining good for you, oven-baked salmon fillets with a simple, homemade teriyaki marinade.
This makes it perfect for anyone interested in controlling the ingredients going into their sauces, like lowering the sodium or using less sugar. A hint of spice from the sriracha cream drizzle offers a bright burst of bold flavor that pairs perfectly with the teriyaki sauce. Serve this classic fish over a bed of white rice with a generous side of steamed broccoli for a filling meal that’s low on calories but loaded with bold flavor and essential mind and body benefits.
Sriracha is an amazing sauce. We’re a little nuts for it over here. In fact, I have it on good authority one of the sons is even getting a bottle in his Easter basket this year. This hot sauce can literally make anything taste better. Add it to some broccoli and you’ve got yourself an epic combination. I realize it may not look quite as vibrant or delicious now, but that’s just what soy sauce does to broccoli. It turns it brown. This saucy side dish may not be all that much of a looker, but rest assured, she’s got it going on! While skinny on the calories, this Asian-style broccoli is full on flavor and packs just the right amount of spice.
