Teriyaki Salmon Recipe

This teriyaki salmon recipe is a winner! Simple ingredients and no lengthy marinating needed. A flaky, juicy and delicious teriyaki glazed salmon recipe.

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 :).

    I’ve been trying to read through comments to find my answer, but cannot seem to find. Do you mind what teriyaki sauce you used or suggest? I can’t ever seem to find a decent tasting one. Thank you! Reply

    Made this the other night for dinner, turned out amazing!!! Can’t wait to make it again!

    The sauce was out of this world! Have you tried to make it in a larger quantity and keep it in a bottle to use when you need a teriyaki sauce for other recipes? Would love to do that, but didn’t know how well it would work, especially since it turned thicker after warming it up… Reply

      Hi Amy, to be honest I haven’t tried making the sauce to store it, but I think it would be worth experimenting! If you try it, let me know how it goes 🙂 Reply

      Hmm how about freezing it into ice cubes in an ice tray? Maybe 1 tablespoon of sauce per cube? That way when you take it out for a recipe you know the exact amount you’re getting and can warm it up. (Of course you would have to be careful not to use that tray in the future for actual ice cubes, lol, or you might have some funny tasting water.) Reply

    Thanks for the wonderful recipe! We skipped the Hoisin sauce, replaced sugar with pureed dates and added malt before baking, and it turned out awesome! Reply
