This meal has all the hallmarks of a weeknight favorite. First, and most importantly, is deliciousness. A subtle kick of ginger mixed with teriyaki glaze is the perfect complement to this tender salmon fillet. This leads us to our second favorite thing about this dish: It's super healthy! Salmon is chock-full of Omega-3s and the veggie stir-fry adds a great combo of freshness and texture. Finally, after a little choppity-chop-chop, this meal comes together quickly. After a long day, we can all appreciate that. Tip: To peel the carrot with less effort, lay it down on your cutting board peel one half, rolling it as you peel. (Be sure to peel in a motion away from you!)
