I recently made salmon that was so delicious and so easy to make. From beginning to end, this dish will take you less than 1/2 hour to make. Remember to look for wild salmon as it is much healthier than farmed, as has less mercury in it.
For two people:
- 2 5-6 oz. portions of salmon or one 10-12 oz. piece of salmon (wild is healthier than farmed)
- honey- about 1 tablespoon
- about 1/2-3/4 cup Trader Joe’s Island Soyaki teriyake sauce (has incredible stuff in it like pineapple juice, sesame seeds, ginger, garlic, etc.)
Preheat oven to broiler setting-low. Then, cover a baking sheet with foil. Place salmon on sheet (if skin is still on, make sure you put the salmon on the sheet skin side down.) In a small bowl, put about 6 oz of the teriyaki sauce and about 1 tablespoon of honey, mix till blended. Spoon some sauce on both sides of salmon, but spoon some extra on the top. Glaze is thin, so try to make sure some of it pools on top of the salmon. Place under broiler. You want the glaze to start bubbling and browning, because that’s what will make it tasty. If it is getting too brown or burning, change oven setting to bake at 350 degrees. But you can cook it the entire time on broil if it isn’t burning. It will take about 10 or so minutes. But check it after 10 minutes by cutting into a piece. I don’t like my salmon rare, I like it cooked through, so depending on how you like your salmon cooked, it will either be done or need a few more minutes. And that’s it. Oh, I did get my salmon at BJ’s in a bag- it was frozen, individually vacuum sealed packets. You can defrost them in a bowl of cold water or in the refrigerator.
Note: You may want to baste the salmon halfway through cooking it, but if you don’t make sure to drizzle the glaze that’s on the foil evenly over each piece of fish. The glaze is soooo good.
