My freezer is currently packed — and I do mean packed with salmon. You could say I’m up to my gills. I couldn’t resist.

Both the Honey Teriyaki Salmon and the rich glaze cook in one skillet. The whole dish comes together in just 20 minutes so it’s fast enough for busy weeknights, but its big bold flavor makes it gourmet enough for company.  

CATCHING FISH:

In August my husband and I along with our good friends chartered a boat and captain to take us salmon fishing on Lake Michigan.

The day started early; 5:30 a.m. early but my bleary eyes were rewarded with this. Honey Teriyaki Salmon is simple fake-out fancy made incredibly delicious with a 4-ingredient glaze that packs all the flavor.

The captain supplied everything from the boat to the bait, rods and reels and most important,but above all, the expertise on how to catch salmon.

I’ve fished many times with my husband for lake perch or walleye (called pan fish because they don’t grow bigger than a pan or skillet) but they don’t fight like salmon.

Whether we’re fishing or not the lake is our place to get off the grid. We had a fun weekend and transported about 30 pounds of fileted salmon home in our trusty Yeti cooler.

But enough vacation stories, let’s talk salmon.

Since I’ve had this surplus of salmon, I’ve been experimenting with some new recipes and remaking some old ones.  With this much salmon we’ll probably still have some left in the spring which is A-Okay.

I  like to create recipes using whatever is on hand. A lot of them don’t end up on the blog but this Honey Teriyaki Salmon is a recipe too delicious not to share. I had to . . . just had to.

A whole pineapple for 99 cents and some herbs from the garden turned plain white rice into pineapple-herb rice. The sweet pineapple goes really well with the teriyaki sauce. Some stray asparagus from the back of the fridge made it into a baking sheet with some olive oil, salt and pepper to round out the meal. 

Honey Teriyaki Salmon Ingredients:

  • salmon fillets
  • flour
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • cilantro 

Glaze:

  1. honey
  2. teriyaki sauce
  3. ground ginger
  4. lime juice

INSTRUCTIONS:

Whisk the glaze ingredients together in a bowl then set it aside. 

Slice the salmon lengthwise so you have four narrow strips about the same size, season both sides with salt and pepper then dredge each filet in flour, shaking off any excess. 

Tip: Dredging salmon in flour gives it a slightly crisp exterior and keeps the salmon moist during the cooking process.

Do we share a love of all things salmon?

If so, let’s join forks and try two other blog favorites: Cucumber Dill Salmon pan-seared salmon topped with a creamy cucumber, Greek yogurt/fresh dill sauce. Simple, sophisticated taste goes stove to table in just 20 minutes with no sour cream

Craving a hearty bowl of soup? Smoked Salmon Chowder is my go-to. Packed with bites of smoked salmon and tender potatoes, it comes together in 30 minutes. It’s ideal for weeknights but elegant enough to entertain with!

Enjoy!

    I made this last night and WOW!! The flavor is so good and super easy to make/follow. Love the flavor combo of the glaze. It paired really well with a cilantro lime slaw that I added pineapple to.
