Major salmon fans over here. This teriyaki salmon recipe is a winner! It’s so simple and doesn’t require any lengthy marinating, but is super flavorful. The salmon turns out flaky, juicy and absolutely delicious with the homemade teriyaki sauce (which is great on chicken too!).

This is an easy salmon dinner idea the whole family will love. My son LOVED it and he doesn’t usually refill his plate for salmon. Funny all I have to tell him is “it tastes like Panda” and he’s sold. He’s big on Asian flavors :).

    Best salmon recipe EVER! My friend made it for me and I HAD to have the recipe. This is the only way my family will eat salmon. Thank you! Reply

    Made this recipe tonight at a half measure but it’s typically what I think of Asian flavours in America – very sweet! Maybe 1-2 tbsp of sugar rather than what the recipe calls for. Reply

    This is way too cloyingly sweet. I’d say add some spice (sambal or sriracha) and maybe 3 T of sugar instead of a third of a cup. Reply

      You could definitely change the flavor profile to make it a spicy teriyaki salmon if you prefer. Reply

    This is an outstanding salmon recipe and might be my all time favorite. Did it on the Big Green Egg with super fresh Norwegian salmon. Fantastic and easily in my rotation of meals. Served with brown rice and green beans. Reply

      This marinade is not intended to be used over night and not necessary to marinate for so long. Reply
