3 Wild caught salmon fillets (6 oz. each)
2 tbsp Sesame oil
6 tbsp Gluten-free soy sauce or coconut aminos
1 tbsp Lime juice
3 1/2 tsp Fresh ginger (peeled and grated)
2 1/2 tsp Clove garlic (finely minced)
3/4 tsp Ground black pepper
dash Dried red pepper flakes (to taste)
6-8 Baby Bella mushrooms (thinly sliced)
1 cup Broccoli florets
1/2 Large red bell pepper (sliced into thin strips)
3 tbsp Bone broth
1 tbsp Arrowroot powder or potato starch
8 oz Thinly sliced chard leaves (stalks removed) or baby spinach (about 4 cups packed)

To cook salmon:

Preheat oven to 425°F.

Brush the bottom of a glass baking dish with 1 tbsp sesame oil.

Place salmon fillets in dish about 2 inches apart.

Whisk together 3 tbsp soy sauce or coconut aminos, lime juice, 1 1/2 tsp grated ginger, 1/2 clove garlic minced, and 1/4 tsp ground pepper, and spoon evenly over the top of the salmon fillets.

Bake at 425F for 12-14 minutes, until fillets are cooked through and flake easily with a fork.

To make the stir fry:

Heat 1 Tbsp of sesame oil in large skillet or wok over medium-high heat.

Add 2 cloves garlic minced and 2 tsp grated ginger and cook until fragrant while stirring constantly 30-60 seconds.

Add all the vegetables and cook, stirring, until crisp-tender, about 5-6 minutes.

In a small bowl, whisk together bone broth, 3 tbsp soy sauce or coconut aminos, and 1/2 tsp black pepper.

Pour into veggies while stirring and cook 1-2 minutes more, until sauce is thickened and veggies are glazed.

Serve salmon and stir-fry over shirataki noodles or ½ cup brown rice if desired.
