Do you have picky eaters, too?

Once upon a time, my son only wanted bread, pasta or crackers to eat and everything else was a struggle.

Once I started to incorporate healthier foods in WITH his favorites, we was more willing to try new things. For instance, macaroni and cheese was a big favorite. I started adding broccoli and carrots to the pasta and now broccoli is his favorite vegetable. Eventually, I started omitting the pasta and now I have a kid that doesn’t fuss about vegetables.

When my kids were young, we fed them what we ate and so salmon has always been a staple in our diet. If you kids are new to salmon, try serving chicken and salmon and offering them a little of both.

The garlic, ginger and sesame oil gives this recipe a great flavor that could even be used on grilled chicken.


  • 2½ Tablespoons
    Chopped Cilantro
  • 2 Tablespoons
    Minced Ginger
  • 1 Tablespoon
    Minced Garlic
  • ¼ Teaspoons
    Red Pepper Flakes
  • ¼ Cups
    Coconut Aminos
  • 3 Tablespoons
    Sesame Oil
  • 1 ⅛ Pound
  • 3¼ Cups


  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F.

    Finely chop cilantro. Mix cilantro together with ginger, garlic, red pepper flakes, coconut aminos and half the sesame oil.

  2. Place salmon in baking dish and pour half the marinade over (reserving the rest), until well coated.

    Cook 12 to 15 min until salmon is cooked through and beginning to flake.

  3. Cut broccoli into florets. Heat remaining sesame oil in wok or large skillet. Add vegetables and stir-fry 4 to 5 min until just tender.

    Add remaining marinade. Cook 2 min more, stirring to coat vegetables.

  4. Serve salmon with vegetables and top with more cilantro leaves.

  5. Enjoy!
