  • 1.75 pounds salmon fillets or 4 small individual salmon fillets
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • ¼ cup Thai sweet chili sauce
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoon miso paste
  • 1.5 tablespoon ginger freshly grated


  • 4 cups cooked freekeh
  • 4 cups shredded red + greed cabbage
  • 1 head romaine lettuce chopped
  • ½ cup green onion chopped
  • ½ cup cilantro chopped
  • ½ cup carrots shredded and chopped
  • 2 oranges peeled and chopped
  • 1 cup cooked beets chopped
  • 2 avocado pits removed and sliced
  • ½ cup sunflower seeds
  • Sesame seeds green onion, and lime wedges for garnish


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Spray a medium size rimmed baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray and lay out salmon filets, skin-side-down.
  • In a small bowl whisk together the olive oil, Thai sweet red chili sauce, lemon juice, minced garlic, miso paste and grated ginger. Pour sauce over salmon fillets, trying to keep as much on top on the fillets as possible.
  • Bake salmon for 10-12 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 145 degrees F (try to avoid overcooking as it will dry-out the salmon).
  • As the salmon bakes, prepare your bowls- start with cooked freekeh (or preferred favorite grain), shredded cabbage, lettuce, green onion, cilantro and carrots. Finish by piling on fresh chopped oranges, beets, avocado, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds and, of course, salmon!


*Prep veggies, freekeh and marinade ahead of time to make for an even easier and faster dinner. **To make this dish GLUTEN-FREE swap the freekeh for quinoa or rice.
