We all have to eat- it’s the way we’re made. And that’s lucky for us, because while the main purpose of eating is to nourish and fuel our bodies, eating good food is one of life’s pleasures. So how great is it when you can eat something that tastes delicious and at the same time gives your body all the good stuff it needs to function at its best? Pretty great- right? Which is why you’ll love this recipe for Teriyaki Salmon and Zucchini from Health Magazine. It’s high in protein, vitamin D, vitamin A, potassium, and those omega-3’s that are so important for your heart and brain, and it’s so easy to whip up that it might become your go-to meal for busy nights, even though it’s definitely impressive enough to serve for an important dinner.

Teriyaki Salmon and Zucchini


  • Low-sodium teriyaki sauce
  • 2 (6-ounce) salmon fillets
  • Sesame seeds
  • 2 small zucchini, thinly sliced
  • 4 scallions, chopped
  • Canola oil


  1. Combine 5 tablespoons teriyaki sauce and fish in a zip-top plastic bag. Seal and marinate 20 minutes.
  2. Toast sesame seeds in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, and set aside.
  3. Drain fish, discarding marinade.
  4. Add fish to skillet, and cook 5 minutes. Turn and cook for 5 more minutes over medium-low heat.
  5. Remove from skillet, and keep warm. Add the zucchini, scallions, and 2 teaspoons oil to skillet.
  6. Sauté 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Stir in 2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, and serve with salmon.

Another great thing about this dish is that you can add almost any side to go with it if you’d like to add a carb, and still keep it healthy. Serve it with some brown rice, roasted potatoes or sweet potatoes, or quinoa to make it a little more filling and up the nutrition factor.
