Salmon with Homemade Teriyaki Sauce

Salmon is an excellent choice for a healthy, protein-packed dinner, as it is rich in long-chain omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. Instead of cooking it dry on the stove, pair it with a delicious teriyaki sauce you can make from scratch and let it be the star of your meal!

  • Ingredients



  • 2 6-oz salmon fillets
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • White and black sesame seeds for garnishing

Homemade Teriyaki Sauce

  • 1 cup water
  • 5 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1-2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 large clove of garlic, finely minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup cold water

What To Do

  1. Combine the 1 cup water, brown sugar, soy sauce, honey, garlic and ginger in a medium saucepan and set over medium heat.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch with the 1/4 cup water and whisk until dissolved. Add the cornstarch mixture to the saucepan.
  3. Heat the sauce until it thickens to your desired thickness. If the sauce becomes too thick, add more water to thin it out. Once it reaches the desired consistency, remove the saucepan from the heat.
  4. Heat a pan or skillet over low to medium heat. Add in a bit of oil and sear the salmon fillets skin-side down until the bottom part becomes crispy. Cover the pan or skillet to ensure the fillets are cooked through.
  5. Once cooked through, remove the fillets from heat, drizzle the teriyaki sauce over them and garnish with sesame seeds. Serve immediately with steamed rice.
