Teriyaki Salmon Recipe


  • 4 salmon fillets
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons mirin (Japanese sweet rice wine)
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ginger, minced
  • Sesame seeds and sliced green onions, for garnish
  • Cooked rice or steamed vegetables, for serving


  1. Prepare the marinade: In a bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, mirin, brown sugar, honey, minced garlic, and minced ginger until well combined.
  2. Marinate the salmon: Place the salmon fillets in a shallow dish or resealable plastic bag. Pour the teriyaki marinade over the salmon, ensuring that each fillet is evenly coated. Cover or seal the dish/bag and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to infuse.
  3. Preheat the grill: Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Lightly oil the grill grates to prevent the salmon from sticking.
  4. Grill the salmon: Remove the salmon fillets from the marinade, allowing any excess marinade to drip off. Place the fillets on the preheated grill, skin-side down if applicable. Grill for 4-5 minutes on each side, or until the salmon is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.
  5. Garnish and serve: Once grilled, transfer the teriyaki salmon to a serving platter. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and sliced green onions for garnish. Serve hot alongside cooked rice or steamed vegetables.

Enjoy your Teriyaki Salmon, a delicious and satisfying dish that’s sure to impress!
