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.
