    Kimke's Note:

    This simple teriyaki dish works great with salmon or other firm fish. This is my husband's speciality dish from the cookbook, Big Bowl. It is incredible. We typically double the sauce. For six weeks, we had this every week! It's to die for!! And very easy!!

      The sauce was luscious. I used Chicken breasts instead of salmon; DH and I both loved the flavor. To keep it low-carb, I used Splenda in place of sugar, and sauce was so tasty. A nice balance of flavors!

      This review is long overdue. I already made this recipe maybe 8 times in the past year (I tried not to make it so much due to salmon having mercury, but it sure is hard to not make it because it gets requested a lot!). It's such a delicious recipe! I make it in a covered wok, but I'm sure many other type of pans can work. I use a bit less of the sauce, because I found that otherwise it doesn't glaze up in the time the salmon gets cooked. I have to say this is my favorite recipe on this site in terms of the flavor and how quickly it can be made.
