Fresh salmon is marinated in an easy, homemade sauce then broiled until the top is browned and caramelized. Weeknight dinners do not get any easier than this Teriyaki Glazed Salmon Recipe.
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.
