Everyone loves this salmon teriyaki recipe, so it's perfect for a family meal! Honey and soy combine to make a punchy sauce for fish. A simple and quick midweek meal.
Course: Main Course
Cuisine: Japanese
Keyword: healthy asian dish, salmon, teriyaki
Servings: 2 people
Author: Fiona Uyema
Cost: 15


  • Vegetable oil
  • 2 salmon fillets
  • A handful of spinach leaves washed
  • 2 portions rice cooked, to serve
  • 1 avocado, sliced to serve
  • A handful of sesame seeds to garnish

For the teriyaki sauce (homemade recipe below or shop for Fused Teriyaki Sauce)


  • Combine the soy sauce and honey in a small bowl, mix well and set aside.
  • Pour a little vegetable oil into a non-stick frying pan on a medium to high heat.
  • Place the salmon fillets (skin-side down) on the frying pan and sear both sides of the fish.
  • When the fish is nearly cooked (place the salmon fillets skin-side down at this point) pour the teriyaki sauce over it.
  • Use a large spoon to continually pour the sauce over the fish fillets while continuing to fry.
  • Fry until the teriyaki sauce is reduced to the consistency of a syrup. Just before taking it off the heat add the spinach leaves and leave on the pan for one minute.
  • Serve with rice and sliced avocado. Garnish with sesame seeds.


This is still one of the most talked-about recipes at my cooking classes.
The perfect combination of flavours in the salmon and the sweet teriyaki sauce make this an all-time favourite in households across the world and on menus in both Asian and non-Asian restaurants.
TOP TIP! Keep a close eye on the teriyaki sauce as it can quickly reduce on a high heat and start to burn.
