Guys…if you’re looking for the BEST dinner ever, look no further. I bring you my honey garlic salmon (aka the best salmon recipe) with coconut rice, roasted cabbage and sesame cucumber salad. Basically a mouthful of deliciousness that I could eat every. single. night.
This honey garlic salmon is an oldie on my blog, and almost a weekly staple in our house. I love changing up the sides when I serve it, but this combo is hands down one of my favorites!
Sweet coconut rice, crunchy sesame cucumber salad, and a simple side of roasted cabbage. It’s so simple, yet tastes incredible.
The cucumber salad is actually one of my favorites to make when I have extra cucumbers. I always have a few left at the end of the week, and this is a great way to utilize them and pair with dinner or lunch!
Some key ingredients for this dinner:
- coconut aminos– I prefer this over sauce sauce because it has a natural sweetness to it. If you don’t have any, low-sodium soy sauce would be your best option!
- canned coconut milk
- toasted sesame oil
- sesame seeds
- rice vinegar
- a few simple spices, like salt, pepper and red pepper flakes
Most of these are staples I keep in my pantry and fridge, so this dinner is always a top choice when I have the right ingredients on hand.
The salmon is flakey, the sauce is thick, and you have the perfect balance of protein, carb and veggies. I love making my own marinades with proteins, and truly can’t get enough of this honey garlic sauce- it really is the best salmon recipe!
I can’t wait to hear what you think!
