Salmon Teriyaki

Pin It

Good morning everyone☺!

I've committed myself to stick with a really *clean and healthy* diet this week. We've got a much anticipated trip coming up and I really want to be good throughout the next couple of weeks especially with Christmas right around the corner.

Speaking of are you doing with your shopping list? In case you missed it and still need a little help, check out these posts:

Last night's dinner was easy peasy....

Salmon Teriyaki

For the Teriyaki Sauce:

1/3 cup (low sodium) soy sauce
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tbsp. brown sugar
2-3 cloves (approx. 1 tbsp.) garlic, minced
1 tsp. ginger, freshly grated
1/3 cup water
2 tbsp. corn starch
Heat all ingredients except corn starch in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Dissolve corn starch in water in separate mixing bowl and then add to the rest of the mixture. Cook on medium-high heat for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until sauce reaches desired thickness.

For the Salmon:

1 tbsp. olive oil
3-4 (4-6 oz) salmon fillets, skin removed
kosher salt, to coat salmon
ground black pepper, to coat salmon
4-5 green onions, sliced on the bias (diagonally) -----> I didn't have any
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Wash and pat salmon fillets dry with paper towel. Generously sprinkle both sides with kosher salt and ground black pepper.
3. Heat oil in a non-stick, oven-proof skillet over high heat. Once oil is hot, lay fillets (non-skinned-side-down) in the skillet. Pan sear the salmon on the one side until golden, about 2-3 minutes. Once golden, gently flip fillets over and brush generously with teriyaki sauce. Transfer skillet (or place salmon in an oven proof dish) to the oven and roast for 6-10 minutes, or until the fish is tender and flaky. Careful not to overcook the salmon.
4. Remove the salmon from the oven. Drizzle left-over teriyaki sauce over salmon and garnish with sliced green onions (if using). Serve along with steamed (white) rice, if desired.
