How To Make Teriyaki Salmon
I cook salmon on a weekly basis because salmon is healthy and rich with omega-3 fatty acids and protein. It’s always delightful and healthy such as this easy salmon teriyaki recipe.
The recipe calls for only four (4) basic ingredients: salmon, soy sauce, mirin, sugar and it’s made on a skillet on stove top. It’s an easy recipe, just like everyone’s favorite chicken teriyaki.
Salmon on Stove
I love to pan-fry the salmon (skin side down) on stove. Use a pan or skillet (non-stick preferred) until the skin becomes super crispy. Use low to medium heat on the stove.
Then I cover the skillet so the entire salmon is cooked through. The end result is moist, tender, perfectly cooked salmon on stove that is bursting with natural sweetness.
Homemade teriyaki sauce is the best and you need only 3 ingredients: soy sauce, mirin (Japanese sweet rice wine) and sugar. Soy sauce is the main ingredient; you can’t make teriyaki sauce without it.
Hence, you can’t substitute teriyaki sauce with soy sauce. You can get mirin at Japanese stores or Asian stores, if not, you can always find it online. Cook the teriyaki sauce mixture on low heat in a sauce pan until it thickens.
What Vegatables to Serve with Teriyaki Salmon
I love serving boiled broccoli florets with salmon teriyaki. You can assemble a rice bowl with the salmon and the vegetables. Fill the rice bowl with steamed rice, place the salmon on top of the rice and then drizzle the teriyaki sauce on top.
The rice bowl will make a complete and nutritious meal for lunch or dinner. It’s also great as a bento to school or work.
