Teriyaki Salmon

Teriyaki Salmon is one of our favourite ways of cooking salmon. Teriyaki is a soy sauce based sweet and savoury flavour similar to the Mongolian beef sauce. With salmon it creates a beautiful caramelised glaze on the salmon.

Teriyaki sauce is very straight forward to make and you can keep it in the fridge and use it in a similar way with chicken or beef. In it’s simplest form it is made of soy sauce (salty) and sugar (sweet).

We usually serve teriyaki salmon with stir fry noodles and top the salmon with spring onions and toasted sesame seeds. Use this as a quick weeknight dinner and if you make the teriyaki sauce in advance make sure you marinade the salmon in advance.
