  5. While fish is cooking, melt coconut oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the ginger and garlic and sauté for about one minute. Add the beet and broccoli stem “noodles” to the pan and sauté for 3-5 minutes, until noodles are warmed through.
  6. Turn off heat, add cabbage and sauce and mix to coat all veggies.
  7. Plate veggie noodles, top with salmon and serve.
