My Recipe Box - Teriyaki Salmon



I found this at Honest Cooking site. Looking at my photo I realize I forgot the sesame seeds!! Next time!


It is a keeper the only changes I would make is to increase the garlic and ginger. My salmon had skin and it worked well.

Place salmon filets in the ziplock bag and marinate for 30 minutes.
Heat oil in a large skillet. Add salmon filets making sure not to overcrowd pan (I had to cook two at a time).
Cook 3-4 minutes on each side until desired doneness.
Meanwhile heat the reserved marinade in the saucepan and bring to a simmer.

Slowly whisk in the cornstarch mixture to the marinade and simmer until thickened.
Serve immediately with the teriyaki sauce drizzled on top as well as green onions and sesame seeds for garnish, if desired.
