This Orange Teriyaki Glazed Salmon is super healthy, super quick to make and 100% yummy! It is the perfect combination of salty and sweet with a little bit of heat.
Living in the pacific northwest, salmon and steelhead are a big deal. And for good reason, they are delicious! And now that i’m in the south I can still get delicious wild caught salmon. Unfortunately, just not as often as I would like!
While I do enjoy some good fried catfish and hush puppies, Salmon is my true love (when it comes to fish, that is). It’s delicious no matter how you cook it up!
As well as being delicious, salmon is also very simple to cook. The main key to a moist and delicious salmon is to not overcook it. Salmon cooks very quickly, about 4-6 minutes per 1/2 inch of thickness. It is done when it flakes easily with a fork or you can check for doneness with a thermometer. 145 degrees in the thickest part of the fillet.
Salmon does not really require a lot of seasoning either, the simpler the better. I just used a little olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper and then finished it with an orange teriyaki glaze, and voila!
Serve this delicious Orange Teriyaki Glazed Salmon with Sugar Snap Pea Salad With Orange Soy Vinaigrette and Toasted Almonds and steamed rice.
Hope you enjoy!
