Easy Teriyaki Salmon Recipe

This easy Teriyaki salmon recipe is a perfect way to end a long day. You will never believe how easy it is to make this dish.

I loved making this salmon dish so much for many reasons. One of which is definitely the fact that salmon can become a bit of a boring food. I have made it so many times the classic ways like with honey mustard sauce or leeks, and I still love the taste …. but it is so refreshing to just cook something completely new. 

This easy Teriyaki salmon recipe will go great served with some greens. You can make a stir-fry with any greens that you have in your pantry. Snap peas, pak choi or even carrots will go nicely with this salmon. Of course, including some rice on your plate will make the dish whole.
