Marinated for a whole twenty-four hours before baking, this teriyaki salmon melts in the mouth and is beautifully flavored. The teriyaki marinade is made from a combination of honey, fresh lemon juice, soy sauce, and ginger. The marinade is later turned into a reduction-teriyaki sauce to spread over each piece of salmon. With a baking time of just 15 to 20 minutes, this is a great dinner option for a quick dinner.

Ingredients

  • 250 milliliters honey (or maple syrup)
  • 250 milliliters water
  • 125 milliliters lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
  • 125 milliliters soy sauce

  • 4 salmon fillets (about 200 gr. each)
  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro (diced)
  • sesame seeds

Directions

  1. In a saucepan, add the honey, water, lemon juice, soy sauce, and ginger. Bring to the boil and simmer 3 minutes. Remove from heat and pour into a container large enough to hold the salmon.
  2. Once the marinade has cooled, add the salmon making sure it is completely coated and refrigerate 1 whole day.
  3. Preheat the oven to 190 degrees Celsius.
  4. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  5. Transfer the salmon skin-side up to the baking tray and bake 15 to 20 minutes. Do not discard the marinade.
  6. Pour the marinade into a saucepan and simmer on low heat until the sauce has reduced and thickened.
  7. Serve the salmon with the sauce on top and sprinkled with cilantro and sesame seeds.
