Terikyaki Glazed Salmon

As a child, fish was possibly one of the worst punishments my mom could dole out. Maybe it was because we didn’t eat it very often so it was new and therefore GROSS! I know a few people who still feel that way (ahem, Jen Jen.) At some point in time, I realized that I like fish and now that I am a busy, forgetful mom, I love fish. It is quick to prepare and in my book that is a huge bonus! Besides being quick, fish is really good for you. And sometimes I try to remember to fix healthy foods for my family. You probably do too. Surprisingly, my kids love fish also. Maybe because we eat it regularly, therefore it isn’t new and GROSS. 

If you have kids who think fish is GROSS, this is a great recipe to try on them. The sweet teriyaki sauce, might just convince them to keep taking bites.  And if YOU think fish is GROSS, ditto. Give it a try.

This recipe came from a neighborhood recipe exchange several years ago. Teriyaki glazed salmon is quick, easy and, if your family likes fish, a great go-to recipe. I especially love it for nights when we have lots of things going on.

Teriyaki Salmon


  • 4-6 salmon fillets (approximately 4 ounces each)
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 1 tablespoon cold water


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together corn starch and 1 tablespoon cold water to make a slurry.
  2. In a small saucepan combine soy sauce, brown sugar and 1/4 cup water and corn starch slurry. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, until it thickens.
  3. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  4. Place salmon in a plastic bag or shallow dish and pour cooled teriyaki sauce over salmon
  5. Marinate 30 minutes (but not more than 2 hours)--This step is optional if you are short on time, but but will increase the flavor.
  6. Preheat oven to 350
  7. Remove salmon from marinade, letting excess drip off because it will burn. Place salmon on foil-lined baking sheet.
  8. Cook salmon for approximately 15 minutes until interior temperature is 145 and fish flakes easily
  9. Turn on broiler for 3 additional minutes if teriyaki sauce isn't bubbling and well glazed on the top of the fish.
