This Baked Sesame Teriyaki Salmon has received rave reviews.
Even people who don’t think they like fish love this recipe. I think the amazingly good sesame teriyaki sauce is the key. And you can see from the recipe that once you have made this sauce, you simply pour over your salmon and bake. What could be easier!
As the chef, Alyssa says, “this is easily one of the best things that you will eat”!
- 4 (6 ounce) salmon fillets
- ½ cup brown sugar
- ½ cup low sodium soy sauce (regular soy sauce will work, just reduce salt)
- ¼ cup cider vinegar
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- ¼ teaspoon pepper
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon sesame oil
- 1 Tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 Tablespoon water
- green onions, for garnish
- sesame seeds, for garnish
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a 9×13 inch pan with non stick cooking spray and set aside.
- In a small saucepan, whisk together the brown sugar, soy sauce, cider vinegar, garlic, pepper, salt, and sesame oil. In a small bowl, whisk together the water and cornstarch. Slowly whisk into the mixture.
- Bring to boil and boil about 1-2 minutes until the mixture just starts to thicken. Remove from heat and reserve ¼ cup of the sauce for later.
- Place the salmon in the pan and pour the sauce on top. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 15-17 minutes until the salmon is opaque in the center. I like to remove the aluminum foil the last few minutes of baking to brown the tops. Remove from the oven.
- Brush the top of the salmon with the reserved ¼ cup of the sauce. Garnish with green onion and sesame seeds. Delicious served with rice.
