Making Teriyaki marinade is incredibly easy. Here’s a quick description of the ingredients you’ll need:

  • Soy sauce: use a light, reduced-sodium soy sauce to reduce the sodium content.
  • Sugar: while we prefer using brown sugar, white is the preferred sugar used in a traditional Teriyaki sauce.
  • White vinegar: Rice vinegar is great if you have it, but any white vinegar will work. You can also try Sake!

1. To make the Teriyaki marinade for salmon:  Combine all ingredients—soy sauce, water, brown sugar, white vinegar, vegetable oil, minced garlic, and green onions—in a medium bowl. Stir gently until the sugar is completely dissolved. Use the Teriyaki marinade immediately or store it in the refrigerator, covered, for up to six to seven days after preparation.

2. Add the salmon fillet to a Ziploc bag and pour a little of the marinade over. Roll and seal the bag, then store in the refrigerator until ready to cook. Not more than 1 hour because the acidity tends to “cook” the salmon– but this does affect the texture but not the taste. Enjoy!

Tips for the Teriyaki salmon marinade

  • The amount of marinade will work for 4 individual portions of salmon fillet. We recommend doubling or tripling the ingredients if you’re using a whole salmon fillet.
  • Feel free to add a dash of hot sauce to the Teriyaki salmon marinade if you like your salmon spicy.
  • Do not marinate salmon for more than 1 hour, otherwise, the salmon flesh will cook and get mushy.

How long to marinate salmon

Ideally, you want to marinate salmon for 30 minutes – or a maximum of 1 hour.

Can we make the Teriyaki marinade in advance?

Sure, you can definitely mix together the Teriyaki marinade a day or two in advance and keep it in the fridge before marinating the salmon.
