This Grilled Salmon Teriyaki was very, very great. We added broccoli slaw and pineapple, jicama & cucumber salad. And the wine! It wasn't a special occasion but it was a special dinner. The grilled salmon teriyaki will be often. It helps my diabetes, too.
This is really special! Didn`t change a thing and everyone in my family wanted seconds & thirds. Option: I put the leftover marinade in a saucepan, brought it to a low boil then simmered so I could serve it on the side, cause it's too good to waste. Tip: Keep a fresh chunk of ginger in a freezer bag to peel and finely grate, as needed (no need to defrost). I used a 2 lb. steelhead trout fillet (similar flavour & texture to salmon) & it took 5 minutes per side on our Cuisinart Griddler Combo indoor grill. Tip: Stick a fork in the top of the fish and twist; if it flakes, it`s done. If it feels like it needs to be cut with a knife, add 2 more minutes. Thank you Kittencal for providing my 3rd. awesome recipe from your repertoire!
This was great! Really nice teriyaki flavor that beats the bottled version hands down. The sugar gave a slight caramelization effect and it was wonderful along with a light salad.
