We're always looking for new ways to jazz up old dishes. This salmon teriyaki recipe from blogger Tammy proves that salmon can be just as versatile as chicken, and it's incredibly easy to make. Check out Tammy's Recipes for other great meals to prepare for your family.
1 to 1 1/4 pounds fresh or frozen salmon fillets
1/2 cup teriyaki sauce
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 clove minced garlic (or 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder)
2 tablespoons finely chopped onion (or 1/2 teaspoon onion powder)
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
Dash of crushed red pepper flakes, optional
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
1 teaspoon brown sugar
How to Make It:
1. In a gallon-size resealable bag, combine the teriyaki sauce, oil, garlic, onion, pepper, red pepper (if using), and sesame seeds. Squeeze the bag a little to mix everything together.
2. Add the salmon fillets (fresh or still frozen) in a single layer. Remove excess air from bag, seal, and make sure fillets are covered on both sides in the marinade.
3. Put salmon in the fridge to marinate for a few hours (if fresh) or for a day or two to thaw/marinate (if still frozen).
4. When you're ready to cook the salmon, remove the fillets from the bag and place them in a shallow dish in a single layer (skin side down if the salmon has skin). Pour 1/4 to 1/3 cup of the marinade over the fillets, and sprinkle the teaspoon of brown sugar over the top.
5. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, or until salmon flakes with a fork (145 degrees internal temperature). Don't bake too long, or salmon will be dry!
Serve hot (immediately) with rice or rice noodles, and/or stir fried vegetables.
