The Ingredients That Transform
Before we delve into the cooking process, let's acquaint ourselves with the ensemble of ingredients that will come together to create our teriyaki salmon filet:
2 salmon filets
1/4 cup of teriyaki sauce
2 tablespoons of soy sauce
2 tablespoons of honey
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 teaspoon of grated ginger
1 tablespoon of sesame oil
1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
Sesame seeds and chopped green onions for garnish
In a bowl, whisk together the teriyaki sauce, soy sauce, honey, minced garlic, grated ginger, and sesame oil. This flavorful concoction will serve as the marinade for our salmon filets.
Place the salmon filets in a resealable plastic bag and pour the marinade over them. Seal the bag and gently massage the marinade into the salmon. Allow the salmon to marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, allowing the flavors to penetrate the fish.
Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
Heat vegetable oil in an oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, carefully place the salmon filets in the skillet, skin side down. Sear the salmon for about 2-3 minutes, until the skin is crispy and golden.
Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake for an additional 8-10 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.
While the salmon is baking, you can take a moment to heat the remaining marinade in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring it to a gentle simmer and let it reduce slightly to create a flavorful glaze.
Once the salmon is cooked, remove it from the oven and generously brush the reduced marinade over the top of the filets.
Garnish your teriyaki salmon filets with sesame seeds and chopped green onions for an added burst of flavor and visual appeal.
1. Can I use store-bought teriyaki sauce?
Absolutely! While making your own teriyaki sauce adds a personal touch, store-bought sauce works perfectly well. Just make sure to choose a high-quality brand that complements the flavors of the dish.
2. Can I grill the salmon instead of baking it?
Definitely! Grilling the teriyaki salmon filets can add a smoky dimension to the dish. Just make sure to oil the grill grates before placing the salmon to prevent sticking.
