I don't really know where I got this recipe, but it is the only way we will cook Salmon anymore! Everytime I serve it people rave and beg for the recipe. The cooking times are not exact as I always just watch it depending on the thickness of the salmon steaks, or salmon fillet.
- 3 -4 salmon steaks or 3 -4 salmon fillets
- 1⁄4 cup soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons minced garlic
- 2 teaspoons fresh lemon
- 1⁄2 teaspoon sesame oil
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- Combine all ingredients and pour over salmon in a shallow baking dish.
- Marinade for at least 30 minutes, turning at least once.
- Broil at 500 degrees for 7-10 minutes on each side.
- Serve with wild rice and steamed veggies for a delicious healthy meal.
My husband and I loved this dish. Our only confusion was why it is called "Teriyaki Salmon Steaks" when it doesn't use teriyaki sauce--soy sauce instead. Other than that, we really enjoyed it. I actually reduced the heat to 450 degrees instead of 500 degrees and marinated it for one hour instead of 30 minutes.
I used the soy sauce, brown sugar and garlic in the marinade (I was out of lemon juice and sesame oil)... and let it sit over night in the fridge turning once. I did not add any salt figuring that the soy sauce was probably salty enough. Anyways- I popped these under the broiler when I got home from work and my husband had to come see what I was making because it smelled so good. 5 minutes on each side made my salmon steaks perfectly done. I love teriyaki and salmon, and this recipe is SOOO good!
Have been using this recipe for a while now but only just noticed how few reviews it has. I omit the salt as others have mentioned. We often cook the salmon on the barbeque but you do need to take care not to leave too much marinade on the steaks as the sugar will burn. Definitely a favourite at our house!
