Do you enjoy salmon? My husband and I certainly do… and we really enjoyed our dinner a few night’s ago when I made Sweet Ginger Teriyaki Salmon. I found the recipe on Pinterest,  while searching out salmon recipes. I’ve been preparing Pan-Seared Creole Salmon for years and we absolutely LOVE it, but wanted to bust out of my “rut” and try a NEW recipe. Shocking, right?

Anyways, I found this recipe from Monique at Ambitious Kitchen, and gave it a try… I heartily recommend it! The flavor of the salmon was delicious! I served it with a side of garlic quinoa, and my recipe for Sugar Snap Pea Stir Fry, and I gotta be honest, this was an awesome meal. I will definitely be making this dish again!

I made the sauce early in the day and let the salmon marinade in it all day. In the evening, all I had to do was bake the salmon, sprinkle a garnish on it, and serve it!

Sure hope you will give this a try! I think you’re gonna enjoy some amazing tasting salmon! Here’s how it is prepared: The sauce is really easy (and quick) to make.

For The Marinade:
  • 1 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 4 cloves garlic , minced
  • 3 Tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 pound boneless , skinless salmon (or 4 salmon "steaks")
For Garnish:
  • 1 Tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro , chopped
  1. In a bowl, mix together the teriyaki sauce, grated ginger, garlic cloves, brown sugar, honey and olive oil, until sugar has dissolved and ingredients are well combined.
  2. Put the piece (or pieces) of salmon in a covered container or a large Ziploc bag. Add the marinade to the container, and coat the salmon on both sides. Refrigerate the salmon for at least 1 hour (I marinated mine all day). Turn the salmon over several times during refrigeration (if using a container).
  3. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Spray a baking pan with non-stick cooking spray. Remove the salmon from the marinade and place into cooking pan. (If you are using salmon with the skin ON, then place in baking pan, skin side down.
  4. Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Times will vary, due to different thicknesses of salmon. When done, the salmon should flake easily. (Our salmon took 20 minutes to reach that point) Serve, with a side of rice or quinoa, and a great veggie. Enjoy!
