Simple salmon cooked under the oven’s broiler with a homemade teriyaki glaze. I really like how well teriyaki flavor pairs with salmon but store-bought teriyaki sauce is so thin and doesn’t stay on but runs underneath the fish. I came up with this homemade version that is more of a glaze that stays on the fish.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 ¼ cups water, divided
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 ½ pounds salmon fillets
  • 1 medium green onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Combine 1/4 cup cold water and cornstarch in a small bowl with a lid. Seal and shake until cornstarch has dissolved. Set aside.
  2. 2 Combine remaining 1 cup water, soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, and garlic in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to a simmer and stir in the cornstarch mixture. Simmer until sauce has thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Measure out 1/2 cup of teriyaki glaze and set aside.
  3. 3 Set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler to low. Place salmon on a foil-lined baking sheet. Brush on all sides with teriyaki glaze.
  4. 4 Broil salmon for 12 minutes. Turn broiler to high. Brush reserved glaze over the top. Broil on high until salmon flakes easily with a fork, about 3 minutes. Serve garnished with green onion and sesame seeds.

  1. This is a wonderful dish. I did add a bit of crushed red pepper flakes. Lip smacking good.
  2. I love a recipe that is easy to remember as well. This was it. Great addition to the salmon repertoire.
