For the Teriyaki Sauce:
1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon grated ginger
1 tablespoon granulated sugar substitute (such as erythritol or stevia)
1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum (optional, for thickening)
For the Salmon:
2 salmon fillets (4-6 ounces each)
Salt and pepper to taste
For the Salad:
4 cups mixed salad greens
1 cup thinly sliced cucumbers
1/2 cup shredded carrots
1/4 cup sliced scallions (green onions)
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro or parsley
Sesame seeds for garnish (optional)
In a small saucepan, combine the soy sauce, water, rice vinegar, minced garlic, grated ginger, and granulated sugar substitute. Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
If desired, sprinkle the xanthan gum over the sauce while whisking to thicken it. Continue to simmer for 2-3 minutes until the sauce has thickened slightly. Remove from heat and set aside.
Preheat your grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper.
Lightly coat the grill grates or grill pan with cooking spray to prevent sticking. Place the salmon fillets on the grill and cook for about 4-5 minutes per side, or until cooked to your desired level of doneness. Remove from heat.
While the salmon is cooking, prepare the salad. In a large bowl, combine the mixed salad greens, sliced cucumbers, shredded carrots, sliced scallions, and chopped cilantro or parsley.
Divide the salad mixture onto two plates. Place a grilled salmon fillet on top of each salad.
Drizzle the teriyaki sauce over the salmon and salad. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, if desired.
Serve immediately and enjoy!
