Notes

INGREDIENTS
I have used skinless salmon fillet from Huon Aqua. These are available in both major supermarkets in Australia. Any fresh or frozen salmon fillets can be used. Substitute ocean trout another firm fish fillet, prawns/shrimp, or chicken. 
Any vegetables can be used in a stir fry. I love the combination of red bell peppers and baby bok choy, but broccoli, sugar snap peas, green beans, or broccolini are some great substitutes.
The sauce is a simple homemade Teriyaki sauce. Swap gluten free soy sauce or coconut aminos for Vegemite or leave it out completely. 
I use Sukrin Gold as my brown sweetener. It adds a nice subtle sweetness to the salmon stir fry sauce. Garlic, ginger and sesame oil add so much flavour to this healthy salmon stir fry.
STORAGE
Teriyaki Salmon stir fry is best eaten straight after cooking. It can also be enjoyed cold or gently reheated for an easy meal any time of the week. Store in the fridge for up to 3 days. Freeze and defrost in the fridge if needed.
STEAMING SALMON IN THERMOMIX
I have including an option for steaming salmon in the Thermomix. It is simple and delicious cooked this way too.
