Baked Teriyaki Salmon

I have been gearing towards eating fish lately due to my above optimal cholesterol level. That means I'm not getting any younger!! I need to stay away from the bad fats and hang out more with the good fats. Aside from taking fish oil daily, my doctor recommended for me to eat food that are rich in omega-3 like those found in salmon. 

On that note, let me share with you one of my favorite and easy salmon recipes. Baked Teriyaki Salmon.

Ingredients for the teriyaki sauce: 
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil 
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp minced ginger
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 4 salmon filet

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. To make the teriyaki sauce from scratch: 
  • Add oil and garlic to a saucepan. Cook till garlic turns golden brown.
  • Throw in soy sauce, water, honey, brown sugar and ginger. Mix and bring to a simmer for 2 mins.
  • In a small bowl, mix together cornstarch and water and slowly add this to the sauce. Stir until the sauce thickens. Remove from heat. (you may adjust saltiness/sweetness to your own liking)
3. Line out a sheet of aluminum foil on your baking dish and lightly oil it. Place salmon on top and brush each salmon with teriyaki sauce. Another option is dipping each one in the sauce if you don't have a brush.
4. Cover them with another sheet of aluminum foil and fold the edges.
5. Throw in the oven and bake for 20-30 mins or until the fish is fully cooked.
6. Serve immediately with your favorite salad or brown rice.

That's it! It's really simple, easy and I love that it's not as expensive as eating salmon out in restaurants. Hope you found this helpful. Till my next kitchen journey. Happy baking!
