 Use the glaze in this recipe in your stir fries, too.

 1 lb chopped broccoli florets

1 Tbsp minced garlic

3 Tbsp avocado oil

Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

¼ cup smooth natural peanut butter

Juice of 1 lemon

2 Tbsp coconut aminos

1 Tbsp grated ginger

4 6 oz salmon filets

¼ cup chopped roasted peanuts (optional)

Lemon wedges for serving (optional)

Heat oven to 450ºF. Place the broccoli in a large bowl and toss with the garlic, avocado oil, and salt and pepper to taste. Spread the broccoli in an even layer on a rimmed large baking sheet. 

In a small bowl, whisk together peanut butter, lemon juice, coconut aminos, and ginger. If the mixture seems too thick, add a little water, ½ tsp at a time, to thin it to a glaze consistency.

Place the salmon filets on top of the broccoli and rub the remaining 1 Tbsp of oil onto the top of each one. Sprinkle with a little sea salt. Spoon half of the peanut butter glaze over the fish.

Place the sheet pan in the oven to roast for 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and spoon the rest of the glaze over the fish. Place back in the oven and continue to roast for another 5-8 minutes, until the broccoli is tender on the inside/crisp on the outside and the salmon flakes.


Remove from the oven. Place the salmon and broccoli on serving plates. Top with the optional lemon wedges and roasted peanuts. Delicious!
