Citrus Teriyaki Salmon Zoodle Salad

Jump to Recipe

Introducing our Citrus Teriyaki Salmon Zoodle Salad recipe, a fresh and flavorful dish perfect for salmon lovers and health-conscious eaters alike. 

This salad features grilled salmon, an excellent source of omega-3 fats for heart health. Salmon is also packed with protein, making it the ideal choice for those seeking nutritious and delicious meals.  

Pair the salmon with crisp zucchini and cucumber noodles which provides a  low-carb, nutrient-packed base that's light and refreshing. These veggie noodles not only add crunch but also contribute essential vitamins and minerals to support overall well-being. 

Mango adds natural sweetness to the dish and is an excellent source of vitamin C, while tangy lime juice and zest brighten up every bite. A drizzle of teriyaki sauce gives the salmon a delicious glaze, balancing savory and sweet flavors. We add juicy mango cubes to add a natural sweetness to the salad, while tangy lime juice and zest lend a refreshing citrusy kick to every bite. 

With just a touch of crushed red pepper for a more spicy kick and fresh green onions and cilantro for a burst of freshness, this salad is a satisfying and wholesome meal for lunch or dinner. Try this Citrus Teriyaki Salmon Zoodle recipe today and be amazed at what you can make with healthy ingredients.
