Teriyaki Salmon Recipe

It has been a while that I posted a recipe on my site. So, I decided to do that today. This is one of our favorite recipes for salmon and whenever I ask David what to make for dinner, it is 99 % sure that he will ask for ‘sesame salmon’. Which is what we call it. But ‘honey glazed salmon’ or ‘teriyaki salmon’ describes it just as well. Here is what you will need for my teriyaki salmon recipe:

  • salmon
  • 1/4 cup roasted sesame oil
  • 2 tbs white wine vinegar
  • 1 tbs honey
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 2 cloves (more or less) garlic
  • optional salad & bread as sides


In a bowl large enough to hold the salmon combine the oil, vinegar, honey, soy sauce and garlic.


Cover the salmon with it and let it marinate for as long as you have time on your hand. Start slicing some bread to toast it.


Heat a little oil in a pan, get it quite hot before you place the salmon in it. Brown the salmon on both sides for about 1 – 2 minutes. Covering the pan with a frying lid is a good idea since the soy sauce in the hot oil will splatter all over the place.


Then pour the rest of the marinade over it. And turn the heat down to about a quarter to avoid burning the garlic. You don’t need to turn the salmon again, but every now and then take some of the marinade, juice with a spoon and pour it over the salmon. I also like to sprinkle a little honey on top to give it that extra glaze.


And this is the end result. Have some fresh salad next to the toast and put the salmon on top of the bread. That way it will soak up the yummy teriyaki sauce for you to enjoy. Tell me what you think of my teriyaki salmon recipe in the comments?

  1. Having had the honor of being treated with this recipe by Chef Claudia, I can only confirm that it tastes at least as good as it looks or sounds. David is absolutely right with his 99% ratio. Maybe I should try it myself some of these days …

  2. I don’t like fish so I never eat it, but this looks great. I bet my husband would like it; maybe I should make it for him!

    Also, your pan’s lid looks really cool. 🙂

    • I bet he would love it. And you should at least try it. The marinade is rather strong and if you take a thinner piece of salmon or fish you might actually like it.
      Hehehe – it is not a real lid, actually, it is more a cover you can use on any pan to let the steam through, but keep the splatter in 😉
