10 Minute Teriyaki Salmon

10 Minute Teriyaki Salmon

Preparing a healthy yet tasty meal doesn’t get much easier than this! This recipe is a very basic broiled teriyaki salmon dish.  I brush thin coats of sauce on about every 3 minutes to get a nice glaze; adding the layers also prevents the sauce from burning under the broiler.

You can also make this recipe with frozen salmon fillets. If starting with frozen fish, preheat the oven to 400°f then switch over to broil before putting the fillets in the oven.  You may need to cook the fish a little longer than 10 minutes but it shouldn’t be a dramatic difference (an extra 3 minutes should do the trick).

Serves 2
Prep time 5 minutes
Cook time 10 minutes
Total time 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 ~6oz salmon fillets
  • 1/4 cup teriaki sauce
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds

Directions

1. Position an oven rack 4-6" below the broiler and turn broiler on high.
2. Cover a broiler-safe tray with tin foil and lightly grease with vegetable oil. Rinse off the salmon fillets, then pat dry with paper towel and dust with salt and pepper. Brush each fillet with some of the teriyaki sauce then stick them under the broiler.
3. After about 3 minutes has passed, pull out the fillets and brush them with another coat of teriyaki. Repeat this again after another 3 minutes and sprinkle with sesame seeds, then broil another 2-4 minutes until the fish is cooked through and flakes easily.
