How do you make this Sweet Chili Salmon and the Sweet and Sour Brussel Sprouts?
First, to make the salmon, pat the salmon dry and sprinkle with some salt. Refrigerate the salmon for at least 15 minutes. Then, preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Combine the coconut aminos, salt and pepper together. Add the salmon and marinate it with this mixture. Heat a pan on medium heat with the coconut oil. Add the salmon and sear for 2 minutes with the skin side up. Flip the salmon, cover in the sweet chili sauce and bake in the oven for 4-5 minutes.

Then, to make the Brussel Sprouts, toss the brussel sprouts in the olive oil with the salt, pepper and sweet and sour sauce. Line a baking pan with parchment paper. Add the brussel sprouts and bake for about 20-25 minutes.

After, to make the sauce, mix all the ingredients for the sauce together in a saucepan. Bring the sauce to a boil and remove from heat. If you want the sauce to be thicker, reduce the heat and let it cook until it thickens to your desired consistency.

Finally, to make the noodles, toss the buckwheat soba noodles with the sesame oil and tamari soy sauce. Plate the ingredients together on a plate. Serve and enjoy!
