Teriyaki Salmon

by lydia on June 23, 2010

This is one of our ‘Go To’ meals around here. All my kids love salmon which thrills me, as it is so nutritious. Learn more about why Salmon is such a nutrient dense food here.

I usually purchase enough salmon for everyone to have about a 4-ounce serving. So this recipe can work for 1 -1 1/2 pounds of salmon. I also buy salmon with the skin on it, and one of my kids actually eats the skin. I get my wild salmon from Trader Joe’s or Costco to save money.

Salmon Teriyaki on Plate

Teriyaki Salmon
 
Ingredients
  • 1 - 1½ pounds of salmon
  • ½ cup naturally brewed tamari or soy sauce, gluten free (gluten really isn't good for anyone)
  • 1 tablespoon organic raw brown rice vinegar (Eden is a good brand)
  • 1 tablespoon organic unrefined cold pressed sesame oil (Hain's is a good brand)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced; or, 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger; or, ½ teaspoon of ginger powder
Instructions
  1. Mix all ingredients together with a whisk, pour over salmon in a baking dish, marinate for 30 minutes to several hours. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Bake the salmon for 8-10 minutes. Meanwhile, if you choose to serve it with steamed cauliflower or broccoli even, have some cut up in advance and place in a pot with about a cup of homemade chicken stock. Turn the heat on high, right before you place the salmon in the oven. Steam for 10 minutes. They will both be ready at about the same time. Use the teriyaki sauce to spoon over your salmon. Serve this with a simple green salad and you are good to go!!

We love this teriyaki salmon with steamed broccoli and cauliflower. I sometimes serve it with my turmeric jasmine rice and a green salad too. This recipe makes it’s way onto our table at least once a month.

If you’re interested in using a meal planning service, I highly recommend Real Plans. I have been using them lately and they have been a true lifesaver. Many of meal ideas and recipes for this week were inspired by this service. Real Plans is a meal planning service that you can join (monthly or annually) and have access to their amazing database of recipes. Each week, they map out a meal plan for 5 breakfasts and 6 dinners and some extras to have on hand. It’s very customizable and user-friendly.
