I know I always say this, but homemade sauces are always best and when a sauce is this easy and inexpensive to make, it just drives the point home. My teriyaki sauce is  just 5 ingredients that is made in a matter of minutes.

I have 3 favorite ways to prepare salmon, this teriyaki glazed salmon, Lemon Parmesan Crusted and Mediterranean Lemon Pesto Salmon.

The pesto salmon is a recent addition to the website, but in constant rotation in my house. The teriyaki salmon has been on rotation since I came up with the recipe in 2016 and I just recently updated the pictures.

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.
