Directions

1. To make this easy teriyaki salmon: Mix the honey, sesame oil, Tamari (or soy sauce), garlic, ginger, and Sriracha together in a small bowl.

2. In a skillet over medium heat, heat 1 tablespoon oil and lay the salmon fillets skinless-side first. Cook the salmon fillets to medium-rare, flipping once with a large spatula. Lower the heat and pour the Teriyaki sauce over the salmon so it is completely coated.

3. Sprinkle the spring onions over the top of the salmon. Continue to cook on high heat for a couple of minutes, brushing occasionally, with the sauce until the salmon is glazed and cooked to your liking. You can broil the salmon for 2 minutes under the broiler to crisp up the top if you like. Serve the Teriyaki salmon with extra Tamari or soy sauce on the side if you like. Enjoy! ❤️

Tips for the Teriyaki Salmon Recipe

This Teriyaki salmon recipe is super easy and versatile. Add it to the to-do list this week you’ll just love it! Here are a few tips to make the most of this recipe:

  • Make it a teriyaki salmon rice bowl with sushi rice and veggies such as edamame, avocado, pickled carrots, and cucumbers on the side.
  • Adjust the amount of ingredients for the Teriyaki sauce. It’s a great way to control the sweetness and saltiness of the sauce.
  • Cook the salmon to your liking. Chefs at modern restaurants will often ask you for the desired doneness of salmon. From medium-rare to well-done, you have all the possibilities. We like the Teriyaki salmon cooked to medium so we keep that juicy inside while the outside is crisp, developing that wonderful Umami flavor!
  • This salmon recipe is pretty kid-friendly, but feel free to adjust the amount or simply omit Sriracha sauce in the Teriyaki sauce.

What to serve with the Teriyaki salmon?

You can serve the Teriyaki salmon over white or brown rice, chow mein noodles, pasta, steamed veggies, or chopped bok choi. For a low-carb option try cauliflower rice or quinoa.

How and how long to store the teriyaki salmon leftovers?

This teriyaki salmon keeps for up to 3 days in the refrigerator in an airtight container. Reheat gently in the microwave or enjoy at room temperature. Of course, you can meal prep the salmon fillets and stack them up in containers with rice and veggies for the week.

Can we make teriyaki salmon in the oven?

Sure, you can! For baked teriyaki salmon, preheat your oven to 400ºF (200ºC). Make the sauce as directed and marinate the salmon fillets for 30 minutes. When you are ready to bake brush the salmon with the reserved sauce and bake in the oven for 12-14 minutes depending on the thickness of the salmon fillets. Remove from oven and sprinkle chopped scallion on top.
