Salmon Teriyaki

I’m just going to come out and say it. I’m done with eating Pakistani food every day. I miss eating PF Chang and Zuma and Wagamama and anything that has soya sauce in it!

There’s a very simple solution to not wanting to eat my mums food – make your own, you lazy so and so so! So I did… I’ve absolutely been craving a wasabi style Salmon Teriyaki so gave this a go and here it goes….


2-3 lbs salmon cut into wide pieces

For the teriyaki sauce (you can just buy this too!)

1 cup light brown sugar

3 tbsp low salt soya sauce

3 tbsp hoisin sauce

1 small ginger piece (around 4cm)

1 large garlic clove


Prep – Preheat oven to 200C

  1. Mix all the sauce ingredients together and keep mixing until the brown sugar has dissolved completely.
  2. In a mixing bowl, place the pieces of salmon and pour the teriyaki sauce generously over them, rubbing the sauce into the pieces of salmon. Cover with a cling film and let marinate for 30 mins.
  3. Once the salmon has marinated, place on a greased baking tray and bake at 200 C for 20 mins, then cover with foil and turn on the grill for a further 5-7mins (this will give a crispy layer on top)
  4. While the salmon is in the oven, transfer the remaining marinade to a small sauce pan and bring to a boil on low heat, let it simmer for 5 mins stirring occasionally. The sauce should slightly thicken.
  5. Once the salmon is out of the oven, put the salmon on a plate with rice and layer the sauce on top of the salmon.
  6. Garnish with green onions and sesame seeds.

This has to be one of my favourite quick and easy dishes, so healthy yet so delish!
