Last week I made some teriyaki chicken, one of my children new favorite and because I had some left-overs teriyaki sauce, i used it to make teriyaki salmon this evening. Yum;-)

Ingredients for 2:

  • 2 salmon filet
  • 4 tbsp of teriyaki sauce ( sauce below)

Ingredients for the teriyaki sauce:

  • 1 tbsp of cornstarch,
  • 1 tbsp of water,
  • 1/2 cup of white sugar (or 1/2 cup of honey or even agave syrup),
  • 1/2 cup of low sodium soy sauce,
  • 1/4 cup of cider vinegar,
  • 2 tablespoon of toasted sesame oil,
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced,
  • 2-3 tablespoons of fresh ginger,
  • 1/4 black pepper,
  • 1 tbsp of white sesame seeds optional,
  • 1 tbsp of black sesame seeds optional 
  1. In a small saucepan, combine all ingredients and stir.
  2. Bring the mixture to boil.
  3. Turn the heat down and cook stirring frequently until the sauce thickens.
  4. Let the sauce cool before using it.

I did not have time to marinade the filet before baking it, but it tasted great without it. I am certain however that marinading the salmon would improve the taste.

  1. Turn the oven to 400.
  2. Place the salmon filet on a silpat that you would have previously placed on a medium perforated sheet.
  3. Pour the teriyaki sauce over the salmon and baste it with a pastry brush.
  4. Cook it in the oven for 5-7 minutes.photo
  5. Serve with some coconut rice, and roasted Brocoli and Cauliflower. Et Voila.photoBon Appetit and Happy Cooking!!!
