Another easy salmon recipe to help get those heart healthy fats and protein in!

Simple ingredients make weeknight cooking so much easier. I did not make the teriyaki sauce homemade and I am okay with it! A little bit of sauce goes a long way and fresh fish paired with veggies is still a great healthy option.

The citrusy lime and savory garlic mixed with teriyaki is perfect. It’s a little bit of a change up from stir-fry and I love the flavor of grilled salmon on top.

Nutrition Info:

Salmon: All types of salmon provide a good source of high quality protein and the heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids. The fat and omega-3 content varies from one species to another. Total fat content ranges from approximately 4 to 11 grams per 3 ounce cooked serving.

Cauliflower: High in vitamin C, K and folate. It’s a great substitute for rice and is full of nutrient dense fiber!

Carrots: A medium-size carrot has 25 calories, 6 grams of carbs, and 2 grams of fiber. The veggie is an excellent source of vitamin A, providing more than 200% of your daily requirement in just one carrot.

Lime: One lime can provide 32 percent of your required daily vitamin C and are a great way to flavor foods and beverages without the added calories.
