Teriyaki Salmon

salmon teriyaki

This classic asian preparation of salmon will make a quick dinner any time. You can bake or broil, but I prefer to pan sear. Served along side some sautéed zucchini and a bowl of rice it is a complete meal.

  • 6 ServingsServings


  • 3 tablespoon teriyaki sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 6 salmon fillets
  • toasted sesame seeds (optional)


Prepare salmon by removing the skin, if necessary.  Lay fillets out on a plate.  Brush both sides with teriyaki sauce and let marinate for about 20 minutes.

Heat a large pan over medium high heat, and place the salmon top side down into the hot pan.  Cook about 5 minutes, turn over and cook for another 5 minutes.  If your salmon is thick and you prefer it well done, place in a hot oven to finish cooking.

Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds before serving if desired.
