Asian style salmon–commonly known as Teriyaki Salmon, is one of those recipes that took me a while to figure out, but I did; the unique sweet and savory marinate makes this dish a true crowd pleaser.
Being a food blogger takes a lot work and dedication; from developing recipes to taking mouth-watering pictures. The job of a food blogger is a bit overwhelming. In fact, I’ve being updating most of my posts (mostly pictures) so if you are reading this post right now it’s probably because I’ve updated it.
One of my favorite recipes, and one of the first ones I shared on Johanny’s Kitchen is this Asian style salmon. The first time I shared this recipe, the pictures didn’t do it any justice, therefore I decided to do it again–since this is one of our favorites recipes–and retake the pictures.
Now don’t get foolled by its fancy name, Asian style salmon or teriyaki salmon is simple to make; A mix of soy sauce, brown sugar, honey, lime juice, ginger and garlic infuse the salmon with lots of flavor.
- 4 (about 6oz each) fresh salmon fillets
For the marinade:
- 1/2 cup soy sauce
- 3 Tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 Tablespoons honey
- 2 Garlic cloves, minced
- 1 Tablespoon of fresh Ginger, grated
- 1 Tablespoon of fresh lemon juice
- 2 Tablespoons of olive oil for marinade
- 2 Tablespoons of Olive oil for cooking
Mix soy sauce, brown sugar, honey, garlic, ginger, lemon juice and 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a medium bowl.
Place the salmon fillets in a plastic storage bag and add the marinade. Let them marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Heat the oven at 350º
Remove the salmon fillets from the bag and discard the rest of the marinade.
Heat a large oven-proof skillet over high heat with olive oil. Place salmon skin side down in pan; Let it cook for 2 minutes. Turn fillets and cook about 2 more minutes. Transfer to the oven and let salmon finish cooking for another 15 minutes.
