Teriyaki Salmon

Teriyaki Salmon

I’m not one of those people who has an encyclopedia of recipes in their head. In fact, no matter how many times I seem to make a recipe, I still won’t remember it by heart. I guess that’s why I usually resort to making things up from scratch. I’m just too lazy to pull out my cookbooks and look them up! And between me and you, I always have to look up my own recipes on my blog to remember how to make them.

Every now and then though, a recipe will stick with me. Like those few phone numbers that you never forget. Or your kids birthdays that you almost always remember (don’t you just love when the doctor asks you their birthdate and you mumble and stammer, trying to remember it?!) My Caesar salad dressing is one of those recipes. And then there’s this one. Yup, that’s about it.

This awesome, super easy teriyaki salmon recipe was given to me about 10 years ago by my boss at an antique silver company I worked at. That was way before I had any interest in food, and all I wanted were quick and easy recipes to make for my new husband that wouldn’t set my kitchen on fire. It was easy to remember because it called for equal parts ketchup, OJ, brown sugar and teriyaki sauce. You just make more for more fish, and less for less fish. Pretty easy to remember, even for someone like me!

So if you’re looking for a quick weeknight dinner, or a side of salmon for your Shabbat guests, give this recipe a try. I promise you won’t forget it! ;)

  1. I was on the fence about making fish for dinner, but now you’ve helped me make up my mind. Can’t wait to try this delicious sounding recipe!

  2. Made this salmon for dinner, was so good, so easy to make and all of my kids loved it too. Btw I made six pieces of salmon and was more than enough sauce. Thanx Chani for this great recipe!!

  3. I am willing to bet that even the greatest chefs have recipes like these to fall back on. First thing I noticed was the presentation – the fish looked like a yin-yang, and contrasted beautifully with the quinoa. LOVE IT.

    1. I took 2 pieces of salmon and wrapped them around each other, securing it with 2 skewers (stick them through the fish like an x). Bake, remove skewers carefully and serve.

  4. This was easy, simple, elegant and delicious, an absolute keeper. I plan on trying it with chicken wings next!
