If you’re in need of a healthy and easy dinner recipe with salmon, you need to try these filling, delicious and pretty amazing Healthy Sweet Potato Salmon Bowls!

This is a simple meal prep recipe to help you get some veggies in during the colder months! It’s paleo-friendly, gluten and dairy-free and great for you to get some good fiber, vitamins, minerals and omega-3’s.

In short, I paired the 10-minute Brussels sprouts with some tasty sweet potato mash and pan-seared salmon. It really doesn’t take long and you can make all things at the same time.

What really brings these sweet potato salmon bowls together is, once again, the garlic sauce. I love this cashew-based garlic sauce and it seems to go with everything. Add some lemon to the salmon and your dinner is served.

Ingredients For These Sweet Potato Salmon Bowls

These healthy sweet potato salmon bowls are full of simple, wholesome ingredients that you can easily find during the cold season:

  • Salmon Filets
  • Brussels Sprouts
  • Sweet Potato

Additionally to these three main ingredients you’ll need some garlic, cashews, lemon, salt papper, pickled jalapenos, a cucumber and scallions to bring some flavor.

I also added a little bit of butter to the sweet potato mash, but you can also use coconut or olive oil if you don’t want to use butter.

How To Make These Sweet Potato Salmon Bowls

This is a quick and easy task if you get everything going on at the same time.

Season and sear the salmon in one pan on both sides until golden brown.

While that’s going on you can also be boiling the sweet potato and stir-frying the Brussels sprouts.

And if you’re superhuman, you can even throw in making the cashew garlic sauce in that cacophony. I recommend using hot boiling water to soak the cashews since I don’t think you’d remember to soak them the night before. I never do and I’m a pretty average human, so that’s my take on it.

When the sweet potato is soft and basically falls apart at your fork touch, drain the water and add in some butter/coconut oil and a little bit of salt and pepper if you desire. Mash and stir in some thinly chopped scallions – loved these in there.

Once all of these parts of the bowls are ready, nothing can stop you from putting it all onto a plate or in a bowl and digging in!

I really hope you enjoy it!

Meal Prep Tips

This healthy meal prep recipe will make enough for three people or for one person for three days. Make sure to use airtight containers and a separate container for the cashew garlic sauce. Heat up and add the sauce when it’s time to eat.
