Simple. Scrumptious. Elegant. These are just a few words to describe my dinner tonight...this absolutely perfect teriyaki salmon! This is so easy and we all enjoyed it immensely! You will too!
Here's what you need:
4 (5-6 oz) salmon fillets
1/4 cup lower sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup light brown sugar OR 3 T honey
1 T rice vinegar
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 t corn starch
1/4 t ground black pepper
Garnishes: Sliced green onion and toasted sesame seeds
Mix the soy sauce, brown sugar OR honey, vinegar. garlic, corn starch and pepper in a small bowl. Set aside half of this sauce for later. Place the salmon fillets in a ziploc bag and pour the other half of the sauce over the salmon. Move the salmon around in the bag to coat it all well. Place it in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes or up to 2 hours. When it is done marinating, preheat the oven to 400. Place the salmon on a baking sheet. Cook for 12-15 minutes, or until it flakes easily with a fork. While the salmon is cooking, take the other half of the sauce that you saved out earlier and pour it into a small saucepan. Heat it up to thicken. Brush this glaze on each piece of salmon. Serve with sliced green onion and sesame seeds. YUM!!
