3 Reasons Why You’ll Love This High-Protein Teriyaki Salmon Recipe

  1. The homemade sauce is a sweet yet savory delight. Salmon on its own can be a little bland, but toss it in a sweet and savory sauce and you have yourself a dish that feels far more elevated than it is – we’re talking restaurant-worthy!
  2. Ready in less than 30 minutes. Weeknight dinners need to be quick and painless around my house, which is why I will always gravitate towards quick, easy meals that require little in the way of preparation and cleanup and this Teriyaki Salmon dish definitely fits the bill.
  3. Customize your sides. Whether you want to pair this dish with broccoli and rice or a salad and potatoes, you can make this meal exactly what you want with little fuss.

  • 1 Baking dish (9×13-inch)
  • 1 Small saucepan
  • 1 whisk
  • 1 Small bowl
  • 1 Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 Oven
  • 1 baking sheet


  • 6 4 ounce boneless skinless salmon fillets
  • ¼ cup green onion, diced
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds


  • cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp garlic, minced
  • ½ tsp sesame oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch


  • Begin by preheating your oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish generously with nonstick cooking spray and set it aside
  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine soy sauce, brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, garlic, sesame oil, salt, and pepper.
  • In a separate small bowl, whisk together water and cornstarch until smooth, then gradually whisk this mixture into the saucepan.
  • Bring the sauce to a boil and let it boil for 1-2 minutes, or until it starts to thicken.
  • Reserve 1⁄4 cup of the sauce and set it aside for later.
  • Place the salmon fillets in the prepared baking dish.
  • Pour the teriyaki sauce over the salmon, ensuring you reserve 1/4 cup of the sauce.
  • Bake the salmon in the preheated oven for approximately 15 minutes, or until the salmon flakes easily and is fully cooked.
  • Remove the baked salmon from the oven and drizzle the reserved 1/4 cup of teriyaki sauce over the top.
  • Garnish the salmon with finely chopped green onions and a sprinkle of sesame seeds. Enjoy!


You can use store-bought teriyaki sauce, but making your own is simple and allows you to control the ingredients. A homemade sauce often tastes fresher and less salty. Adjust the sweetness and saltiness to your preference.
This recipe can be cooked on the grill or baked in the oven. Grilling adds a smoky flavor, while baking ensures even cooking. Choose your preferred method based on equipment and personal taste.
