For teriyaki salmon
2 tablespoons cup sesame oil

1 tablespoon sesame seeds
1 teaspoon ground mustard
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
For Vegetable Stir Fry ( you can use whatever vegetable you have on hand or that you like)
2 tablespoons cup Soy Sauce
1 Tablespoons Packed Brown Sugar
1 Tablespoons Cornstarch
2 Tablespoons Sriracha (more Or Less To Taste)
1 Tablespoon Minced Fresh Ginger
3 Tablespoons Peanut Oil
1 small red onion, Cut Into Large Chunks
5 brussels sprouts, sliced.
4 oz mushrooms, sliced
2 whole Garlic Cloves, Minced
3 asparagus, cut in 1 inch length
Step 1: Mix sesame oil, lemon juice, soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame seeds, ground mustard, ginger, and garlic powder in a small saucepan over low heat. Bring to a simmer, stirring until sugar has dissolved. Set aside 1/2 cup of marinade for basting. Pour remaining marinade into a resealable plastic bag and place salmon into the marinade. Squeeze air out of the bag, seal, and marinate the salmon steaks for at least 1 hour (2 hours for better flavor). Drain and discard used marinade.
Step 2: Heat oil in a large skillet. Add salmon filet making sure not to overcrowd pan. Cook 3-4 minutes on each side until desired doneness. Add the reserved marinade in the saucepan and bring to a simmer. Set aside.
Step 3: Heat some oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add chunks of red onion. Stir for 30 seconds then add the rest of the vegetables. The veggies you use in this dish are up to you. Stir the veggies around the pan for a couple of minutes to let them start cooking. You want them to get some nice color on the outside. Then add some minced garlic and cook it for about a minute more, stirring continuously to make sure the garlic doesn’t burn. While the veggies are still somewhat firm, pour in the sauce… Plate the vegetables then the salmon. Pour the teriyaki sauce in the pan over the salmon.
