Teriyaki Salmon is a great way to start the new year healthy eating plan. A whole salmon filet is marinated in a healthier teriyaki sauce then broiled that makes for a moist and flaky fish. My new, healthy, go-to meal and it will be come yours.
The teriyaki sauce is my healthy twist on a this very popular sauce. With just 4 ingredients and sweetened with honey, you’ll be surprised how easy it is to make this sauce at home because we all know homemade is best.
The salmon is marinated for at least 1 hour in the teriyaki sauce. This gives a chance for all the flavors to permeate throughout the meat of the fish instead of just have all the flavor on the top.
What cut of salmon is best?
I used a whole filet of salmon then cut it into 3 to 4 ounce portions which is perfect for serving the family and I also have leftovers for lunch.
No time to marinate? No problem! The salmon will be just as delicious and be on the table in no time without it.
Served with a side of roasted beets and squash and you’ve got yourself a very healthy and colorful dinner. If you want the recipe for the roasted beets, click here.
