Stir Fry with Brown Rice and Grilled Salmon

I have been wanting to post this meal because it is our Favorite. Jake and I have been eating it once a week for the last 4 months, and we don't get sick of it. It is easy, healthy, and SOOOO good. 

You will need:
1 zucchini, sliced
1 white onion, sliced
1 carrott, peeled and sliced
1/2 head broccoli
1 stalk celery, sliced
1 handful of frozen green beans
1/2 yellow squash, sliced
fresh ginger
1 clove garlic
soy sauce
teriyaki sauce
brown rice, prepare according to package directions
1 salmon fillet per person 
or, 1/2 chicken breast (fillet) per person



Directions:
Marinate your salmon and/or chicken in half Soy Sauce, half Teriyaki sauce for 1-2 hours
Start your brown rice (follow package directions)
Chop your veggies
In a large frying pan (or wok) heat 2 Tbsp olive oil.  Drop in your veggies. Stir often for about 10 minutes. After veggies are soft, grate in about 1 tsp fresh ginger, and 1 clove of garlic. Then add 1 1/2 Tbsp Teriyaki Sauce and 1 1/2 Tbsp soy sauce. Cook on low for another few minutes.



Directions for Salmon:
Get a grilling skillet, or just a frying pan on high heat lightly greased with olive oil. When the pan is very hot, place the fish on the pan. It will cook for about 6 minutes on each side.




I like how my grill pan makes those pretty grill lines.



Mmmm-mmmmm good



The "Chicken" version 


Even my two-year old likes it!
