I make salmon on a weekly basis because everyone, including picky eater little G loves Salmon. Salmon is loaded with omega-3 fatty acids and protein, it’s delightful and healthy, if you have a great recipe, such as this amazing, juicy, tender and absolutely flavorful salmon teriyaki.
This salmon teriyaki recipe is so easy. It takes only four (4) basic ingredients: salmon, soy sauce, mirin and sugar. I usually start out by making the teriyaki sauce. While I wait for it to reduce, I start to pan-sear and cook the salmon on a skillet.
I love to pan-fry the skin side part until it becomes super crispy, on low to medium heat. Then I cover the skillet so the entire salmon is cooked through. The end result is moist, tender, perfectly cooked salmon that is bursting with natural sweetness. Drizzle the teriyaki sauce on top of the salmon and you have a healhty, delicious and mouthwatering teriyaki salmon for dinner!
