Looking for a meal that’s not only quick to prepare but also healthy and delicious? This Teriyaki Salmon Zoodle Stir-Fry ticks all those boxes with the added bonus of being a vibrant dish loaded with vegetables and omega-3-rich salmon. Ideal for anyone following a gluten-free or low-carb diet, this dish substitutes traditional noodles with zoodles (zucchini noodles), making it a lighter option for dinner.


  • 4 medium zucchinis
  • 2 salmon fillets (about 6 ounces each)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ginger, freshly grated
  • 1/2 cup teriyaki sauce (gluten-free if required)
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 carrot, julienned
  • Sesame seeds, for garnish
  • Green onions, sliced, for garnish


  1. Wash and spiralize the zucchinis into noodles and set aside. If you don’t have a spiralizer, use a vegetable peeler to create long zucchini ribbons.
  2. Pat the salmon fillets dry with paper towels. In a large pan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat and sear the salmon for 3-4 minutes on each side or until cooked to your liking. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  3. In the same pan, add a little more olive oil if needed and sauté garlic and ginger until fragrant.
  4. Add the red bell pepper and carrot to the pan and stir-fry for a couple of minutes until they start to soften.
  5. Pour in the teriyaki sauce and sesame oil, stirring to combine. Let the sauce simmer for a minute to combine the flavors.
  6. Add the zoodles to the pan, tossing to coat with the sauce, and cook for about 2-3 minutes until just tender but still crisp.
  7. Break the seared salmon into large flakes and gently fold them into the stir-fry, being careful not to break them up too much.
  8. Cook for another minute to make sure everything is heated through.
  9. Remove from heat, and garnish your Teriyaki Salmon Zoodle Stir-Fry with sesame seeds and green onions.

This dish can be served immediately and enjoyed hot. For an extra kick, serve with a sprinkle of chili flakes or a squeeze of lime juice. You’ll find that this healthy stir-fry is not just bursting with color and nutrition, but it’s also full of flavors that will satisfy your cravings without the guilt.

Tip: If you crave a sweeter teriyaki sauce, you can add a tablespoon of honey to the sauce. Adjust the amount of teriyaki sauce to suit your taste buds and dietary needs.
