Teriyaki Salmon Recipe

Major salmon fans over here and this teriyaki salmon recipe is a winner! It’s so simple and doesn’t require any lengthy marinating, but is super flavorful. The Asian salmon turns out flaky, juicy and absolutely delicious with the homemade teriyaki sauce.

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 :). 

Ingredients for Teriyaki Salmon:

You can use a 2 to 3 lb salmon filet for this recipe. We used a wild-caught Sockeye Salmon (more on selecting salmon and it’s affect on how long to bake salmon below). The homemade teriyaki sauce is so simple but so good (which is great on chicken too!). P.S. Use a gluten free soy sauce like Tamari brand (Amazon affiliate link) to make it gluten free! See the ingredient measurements in the print-friendly section below.

How to Make the Teriyaki Salmon:

1. Combine sauce ingredients and stir until brown sugar is dissolved.

4. While salmon is baking, transfer remaining marinade to a small sauce pan and bring to a boil then reduce heat to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally until slightly thickened (3-4 min) then remove from heat.

5. Once salmon is out of the oven, brush with teriyaki syrup, then sprinkle with chopped green onion and sesame seeds as desired.

Juicy!! I’m so bummed there aren’t any leftovers…

How Long to Bake Salmon:

Baking times for salmon will vary based on the type of salmon you are using.

Farmed Raised Salmon (like “Atlantic Salmon” or farmed King Salmon) tend to have a higher fat content so they can be baked for a longer period of time without drying out. Farmed salmon also tends to come in thicker, fattier pieces of salmon which are more forgiving and you can bake longer.

Wild Caught Salmon (like Coho Salmon and Sockeye), tend to be thinner and less fatty fillets (with the exception of WILD Caught King Salmon which can be just as thick and fatty as farm raised). In general, wild salmon is easier to overcook and needs to be baked more carefully. With wild-caught salmon, aim for the lower baking times if a range is given and check for doneness before you cook it any longer.

    I had the salmon ready to go into the oven but decided at the last minute that I wanted something different for our salmon dinner. So, I googled teriyaki salmon and found this recipe. I had to rinse off my salmon and pat it dry because I had already seasoned it.
    I made this almost exactly per the recipe, I just didn’t have the green onions. It was delicious. We had to eat 20 minutes later than planned, but it was worth it. Thank you for the great recipe. Better than going to a restaurant!

    Vegan here so I can only go by what my husband and kid said about the teriyaki salmon. OK so they basically inhaled it and said it the best I’ve ever made. We lived in Asia for almost 10 years so they’re quite familiar with the flavors this amazing marinade and glaze brought to the dish. Guess from now on I’ll need to stop using store bought teriyaki sauce alone.

      Hi Nicole, I think you could use it over rice and broccoli. It would be better cooked. You can try making this in a saucepan on the stove-top so that you can sautee the minced garlic, dissolve the brown sugar, and so the flavors incorporate well.

    Terraki Salmon –
    best salmon I have made – ever! Making a few alterations – delish!! I did not add any terrace sauce as I have never found one I like to have in my pantry.
    I added WF’s hoisin sauce
    San-J Tamari in place of soy
    ground Clove (good sprinkle++)
    I marinated for a good four hours, flipped it and when I was ready to have it go to oven, it went into a º350 oven for 25 minutes (checked at 15 and it wasn’t done). I had it bake in the sauce and it came out SPECTACULAR. Thanks so much for the fab-U-lous meal

    We make this for dinner almost every week. It’s 5 stars plus!
    I put a sheet pan of broccoli in the oven at the same time and serve it with the leftover sauce drizzled on it. The only change I make is cutting the brown sugar to 3 tablespoons.

    This was DELICIOUS! Thank you for sharing! I didn’t change anything, but I only had half the amount of salmon and I made the full amount of marinade. So I used the leftover marinade to cook with some fresh broccoli and carrots. Served over jasmine rice. I would definitely recommend using fresh garlic and ginger, it really added to the sauce!

    Hi I was wondering if I could skip cutting the filet into pieces and just bake whole. Thought it would be prettier for presentation but not sure if it would work.

      Hi Amy, I have tried it as a whole salmon and that works as well. I thought it had a little more flavor with coating the sides of each piece of salmon but it will work as a whole filet.

    I made this Teriyaki Salmon recipe tonight and oh my gosh it was amazing! I’m not a salmon fan but my husband and son love it. So I try to make it every once in awhile but I try to find recipes that hide the salmon taste. Well this one did the trick! I had to make a change to the sauce recipe – I live in a small rural area and I couldn’t find Hoisin sauce. So I Googled to see what I could substitute it with and one recommendation was BBQ Molasses. Well I couldn’t find that either, so I went with Honey BBQ sauce. It worked out great and my sauce was amazing. I will be making this again for sure. Oh and by the way, I also made your fried rice (without the chicken) to go along with our salmon. It was a perfect match! Thank you for having great recipes that are easy to make. I use most of your recipes and my family thanks you – LOL!!

    How would you describe the difference between this marinade and the chicken thigh teriyaki marinade? Why different recipes? Is there a difference because of the type of protein? Which do you like better?

      Hi Bari, they’re pretty different, for example, the chicken teriyaki incorporated citrus from an orange while using ginger for the Salmon teriyaki. I recommend trying both to see which you like better.

        In the list of ingredients is Teriyaki sauce. Since all of the remaining ingredients are identical to those in Teriyaki sauce with the addition of a bit of honey and Mirin, why not just increase the other ingredients and add a bit of honey and mirin? I’m making the dish tonight so cannot rate yet but have everything I mentioned except commercial Teriyaki sauce. Thanks Ed

      This looks delicious, but I have a question. Is it safe to “re-use” the marinade? I thought the golden rule with marinades was that if you marinaded raw meat, you should discard the marinade and not use it on the cooked meat. Does the fact that after marinading the raw fish you are heating the marinade, will that eliminate any bacteria left from the raw fish?
      Thanks….looking forward to trying this recipe!

        Hi Phyllis, keep in mind that the marinade is boiled, just be sure to boil it according to the instructions and it will be safe. That same marinade that was touching the salmon is already in your pan when you are cooking the salmon being on the salmon. I hope that makes sense.

      I have experimented with pan searing 🙂

      You can, but if you do you can’t sear the part that’s been in the marinade because the brown sugar burns. So here’s what I’ve been doing to enjoy both the teriyaki and the wonderful crisp skin you get from pan frying.

      I put the marinade in a shallow dish and put the salmon in it flesh side down. This way there’s no marinade on the skin.

      Then I pan fry skin side down for several minutes on med-high heat. Watch for the salmon to turn opaque roughly half way up.

      At this point I take the salmon out of the pan and place it skin side up on a baking sheet and pop it into a 400 degree oven for 8-10 minutes.
