For the Bowl:

- 1/2 package of Shirataki Noodles (3.5 oz) (substitute: vermicelli noodles)
- 1/4 head of Red Cabbage
- 1 bunch of Cilantro
- 1/2 medium Carrot, julienned
- 1/2 small Red Bell Pepper, julienned
- 1/8 cup of Peanuts, chopped
- Jalapeno (for garnish)
- Fresh Mint Leaves (for garnish)
- 1.5 tablespoons of Soy Sauce (substitute: coconut aminos)
- 2 tablespoons of Chili Garlic Sauce
- 1.5 tablespoons of Avocado Oil (or other oil with a high smoke point)
- 1 teaspoon of Truvia (substitute: granulated sugar)
- 3 Garlic Cloves, minced (substitute: garlic powder)
- Ginger Powder
- 1/2 juice of a small Lemon
- 1 tablespoon of Fish Sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon of Chili Garlic Sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon of Sriracha
- Garlic Powder
- 1.5 tablespoons Truvia (substitute: granulated sugar)
- 1/4 cup Water
Preheat the Oven: Start by preheating the oven to 400 F and lining a baking sheet with foil. Make sure it is long enough to fold over and cover the salmon.
Make the Marinade: In a medium mixing bowl, combine the ingredients for the marinade. Peel the skin from the garlic and roughly chop. You can put the garlic cloves in a garlic crusher to speed up the process instead of mincing.
Marinate the Salmon: Put the salmon in the marinade, making sure the sauce covers it. Then cover the bowl with plastic wrap and keep in the fridge for at least 15 minutes.
Chop the Veggies: While the salmon marinates, wash and prep your vegetables. Chop the cabbage and julienne the carrots, cucumber, and bell pepper. Cut the ends of the cilantro or roughly chop if you want smaller pieces. Set all veggie toppings aside.
Prepare the Sauce: Begin preparing your noodle sauce. In a small bowl, combine the lemon juice, fish sauce, chili garlic sauce, garlic, Truvia granulated sugar, and water.
Prepare your Baking Sheet: Once the salmon is finished marinating, put on the foil lined baking sheet, pour the marinade on top of salmon, and cover it all with foil. Bake for 12 minutes.
Prepare the noodles: In a large pot, get water boiling for the noodles. Then boil the noodles as per package instructions. Shirataki Noodles are packaged in liquid. Instructions were to rinse, then drain, then parboil for 2-3 minutes, and drain again. If using regular Vermicelli noodles these will need to boil for 3-4 minutes or you can pour hot over over them to soften in a bowl.
Broil the salmon: Once the salmon is done baking, remove the top layer of foil and then stick back in the oven to broil for 3-5 minutes. This will slightly char the salmon and give it a sticky sauce. All ovens are different so keep a close eye ensuring it doesn’t burn.
Assemble your bowl: Begin assembling your shirataki noodle bowl. Add the noodles, cabbage, carrots, cucumber, bell pepper, cilantro, and salmon.
Serve and enjoy: Serve with chopped peanuts, a jalapeno, and fresh mint leaves. Pour the sauce over and enjoy!
- You can use a different bell pepper if you want less carbs as red is slightly higher. Or it can be omitted entirely.
- Using a garlic crusher and a julienne slicer speeds up the prep process.
- When turning on broiler, it should be preheated at least 1 minute before sticking the salmon back in the oven.
