This recipe appears way harder than it actually is. It took me about 15 minutes to prepare, and much less to consume!
Super tasty, not boring bland FODMAP style food, this is one of the joys of knowing precisely what foods to avoid to enable your gut to heal, rather than continuing to inflame your body with the wrong foods. And having been IBS free for 20+ years I know what my body loves and what it needs. This is how I help other people with their diets too. Living an IBS free life does not have to be boring. Food is glorious and I am really passionate about delivering great recipes to my IBS free clients and to you :o)
The benefits of this recipe are anti-inflammatory, healthy fats from the salmon, olive oil and veg. Lots of vitamins and minerals for good hair teeth and nails, and to help heal your gut from the colourful and tasty veg and salmon. The energy from the slow release rice (you can use whichever rice you choose). And the gorgeous flavours from the sauce. Enjoy!
You can portion this up into two for freezing or use on another day (keeps for 3 days in the fridge) or make a meal for two and enjoy with your friend, partner or family member.
Teriyaki Salmon Bites
Add 1 cup of rice to two cups of water and bring to the boil with a little salt on the stove. Then simmer for 8 - 10 minutes, or as directed by the packet.
Whilst the rice is cooking, prepare the sauce by mixing well the spices, the teriyaki sauce and maple syrup together in a shallow bowl. Leave the sesame seeds to one side until they have cooked otherwise they will burn.
Wash and cut your salmon up into small 2 cm squares. Dunk them in the teriyaki sauce and cook in your air fryer for 5 - 10 minutes, checking regularly. You want them cooked through but not crunchy. Once cooked, coat in seeds and add to the dish.
Wash and chop your veg, slicing through the broccoli down the middle and chop the asparagus into 3 - 4 cm lengths. Slice the pepper thinly ready for Stir Frying in 1 tbsp Olive oil for 4 - 5 minutes, stirring well.
Once cooked, roll your salmon pieces in a shallow bowl of sesame seeds. Fluff your rice with a fork, and add your stir fried veg. Portion out two portions, one for now, one for later, or share this with your loved one.
Add your chopped coriander or parsley, sprinkle with crushed black pepper for extra antioxidants, serve and enjoy! I guarantee you will love this recipe so much, you will be making it again!
