If you’re having lunch on the go, a bento box is a great option—it’s essentially a lunch box with dividers for keeping ingredients separate. If you’re eating at home, you can set up the vegetables and rice ahead of time and cook the salmon 10 minutes before lunchtime.

Cooking spray

2 spray(s)

Reduced sodium teriyaki sauce

3 tbsp(s), divided

Ginger root

Uncooked wild pink salmon fillet(s)

4 oz, skinless

Cooked medium grain brown rice

Instructions

  1. In medium bowl, combine 2 tbsp teriyaki sauce, ginger, and garlic. Add salmon, turn to coat, and let marinate 10 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 450°F. Coat small baking sheet with nonstick spray.
  3. Meanwhile, in medium bowl, combine cucumber, carrot, radish, vinegar, and soy sauce; mix well.
