This teriyaki salmon is so flavorful please even the pickiest of eaters, and that includes kids by the way. So it makes a great weeknight dinner option for the entire family.

Teriyaki Salmon

This classic recipe requires no marinating or baking, and the salmon is so mouthwateringly delicious, juicy and flaky. Teriyaki may sound complicated, although it’s actually a simple Japanese cooking technique invented centuries ago.

Homemade teriyaki sauce requires just 4 ingredients: soy sauce, white wine (sake/vermouth), mirin and sugar. Mirin is a strange-sounding ingredient, and it’s just sweet rice wine available in larger supermarkets or online. One taste and you’ll make it a kitchen staple.

Recipe Tips

-Sake is the classic ingredient for teriyaki, although dry white vermouth is an excellent substitute. Alternatively dry white cooking wine or non-alcoholic wine will work.

-Mirin is worth buying for amazing teriyaki flavor, and you can get it online or in most larger supermarkets next to other Asian sauces.
