Teriyaki Salmon

October 24, 2008

When I'm home alone I get lazy. I usually want to eat something that's quick to make and uses what I already have in the kitchen. This is a quick and tasty recipe for those nights to yourself. Of course, you can also multiply the recipe to serve more than one.

Teriyaki Salmon Serves 1

adapted from various sources online


  • 1 salmon fillet

  • 1 tbsp soy sauce

  • 1/4 tsp diced fresh ginger

  • 1 diced garlic clove

  • 1 tbsp sugar

  • 1 tbsp sake/cooking wine/vodka

  • A dash of sesame oil

  • 1 tsp corn starch


  1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl excluding the salmon. This will be your marinade/sauce.

  2. Let the salmon sit in the marinade for around 20 minutes - cook some rice, steam some veggies, do some dishes, or watch tv in the meantime. I like to cut the salmon into bite sized pieces so each bit gets nice and saucy and caremelized, but you can leave the fillet whole.

  3. Heat up a pan with a little oil and pan fry the salmon until it's almost cooked all the way through. Add the left over marinade into the pan and cook with the salmon for a couple more minutes.

That's it! See I told you it was easy.
