Honey Teriyaki Salmon ~ one pan, tangy-sweet glazed salmon in just 20 minutes! Easy recipe for perfectly cooked salmon with an outrageously good 5-ingredient glaze!
A while back my husband and I along with our good friends chartered a boat and captain to take us salmon fishing on Lake Michigan. 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.
With about 20 pounds of fresh fish in the freezer, we had it coming out of our gills. Sorry, I couldn’t resist. Trust me – the recipes is way better than the jokes.
Honey Teriyaki Glazed Salmon is pan seared for a lightly crisp outside and cooked until flaky inside with a tangy-sweet glaze over all of it. Plus, the whole thing cooks in one pan in just 20 minutes!
I try to eat salmon once a week. There are all kinds of ways you can cook it, including this Cucumber Dill Salmon, a popular recipe on the blog.
Honey Teriyaki Glazed Salmon goes really well with a side of rice and maybe some pineapple chunks if you happen to have it. A baked potato or crispy slaw would be good too.
