Fish can be eaten in many different ways, but salmon teriyaki it’s truly a simple, quick and extremely tasty recipe, that can be made at home without too many efforts. To preparate salmon teriyaki the only thing you need to do is to marinate the fish in some homemade teriyaki sauce first, finishing by just grilling the salmon. If you make the teriyaki sauce in advance and keep it fresh in the fridge, salmon teriyaki only takes 15 minutes of your time to be ready to be served, so if you don’t have much time but you still want to impress your guests, then this recipe is probably what you are looking for. Even teriyaki sauce is very simple, all you need is soy sauce, sake and mirin combined in equal parts; this japanese sauce makes the meat (or fish in this case) softer and much more tasty than other sauces.
4 salmon fillets
1/2 tablespoon cornstarch mixed into 1 tablespoon water
1/2 cup teriyaki sauce
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
1 chopped green onion
First of all, prepare the teriyaki sauce, which is really simple and easy to do; teriyaki sauce can be prepared with or without sesame seeds but we love them so we obviously decided to include them. Marinate the salmon in the japanese sauce for about half an hour (but you can leave the fish in the sauce for much longer, even for the night). Place the salmon in a baking dish and bake it in the oven (preheated) set to broil; this operation should take about 7-10 minutes.
In the meantime, take a saucepan and boil the remaining marinade, add the cornstarch slurry and simmer until it has thickened, so about 2 or 3 minutes max. Your salmon teriyaki is ready, serve it with the thickened sauce and finish by adding a chopped green onion and a little bit of sriracha mayo, especially if you like spicy food!
