We love delish wild fish! And so does the rest of the world as experience shows with our Thai Baked salmon recipe. That salmon went bananas on the web. We predict the same fate for this baked teriyaki salmon made with homemade easy teriyaki sauce. No mirin or sake, just 6 simple ingredients.
Don’t you just want to grab a piece of this moist sweet and salty salmon?! We have discovered that broiling salmon works much better than baking it at a steady temperature. And never ever cover salmon because it will taste like boiled fish. Instead, we like to broil it for a nice caramelized outside and juicy inside.
You do not have to marinate salmon for a long time but rather keep brushing it with more sauce at different stages of cooking. Even drizzle with more teriyaki sauce on a plate to suit your personal palate. We understand everyone is busy and marinating fish ahead of time is just another step no one has time for if you work full-time. And you don’t have to.
As for fish, we recommend only wild caught species of salmon. Really, any. The cheapest one would be pink and it goes on sale end of summer – beginning of fall. You can buy and freeze a few. To save more $$$, you can buy whole and fillet yourself. Pink salmon is not as bright in colour but still tasty. King, spring, chinook, chum etc. salmon works. Any other kind of firm white fish would be great too.
Enjoy this baked teriyaki salmon!
