Salmon is a fatty fish that’s packed with protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamins and minerals. It’s a popular choice for healthy eating because it’s relatively low in mercury and other contaminants. Salmon is also versatile and easy to cook, making it a great option for busy weeknights.

This recipe for teriyaki salmon is a quick and easy way to get a delicious, healthy meal on the table. It’s made with fresh salmon fillets, a homemade teriyaki sauce, and a few simple seasonings. You can cook the salmon in the oven, on the stovetop, or even on the grill.


When making teriyaki salmon, it's important to choose a good quality salmon filet. Look for salmon that is fresh, firm, and bright in color. When marinating the salmon, make sure to use a high-quality teriyaki sauce that is not too salty. Let the salmon marinate for at least 30 minutes before cooking it. When cooking the salmon, make sure to preheat the pan with a little bit of oil and cook the salmon on medium heat for around 4-5 minutes on each side. This will ensure the salmon is cooked through and evenly cooked. Lastly, make sure to add some extra teriyaki sauce over the salmon after it's done cooking for extra flavor. Enjoy!
