We Love Salmon in my family! I bake it, broil it, or pan-sear it all the time. But the Broiled Teriyaki Salmon takes no time at all! You get Grill-like results at home. The quick heat creates crust while the inside stays tender, butter-like.
I was busy yesterday shopping with my BEST shopping buddy – my mother-in-law and didn’t have much time to cook. Yet, the moment my Hubby walked in the door and said: ” Honey, I’m home!”, I started preparing dinner.
In a bit more than half an hour, dinner was READY!
Obviously, one of the ingredients is already cooked, Seeds of Change Quinoa and Brown rice with garlic, which made it easier. I always stack up (Costco or supermarket) with this wonderful side dish. Just reheat in the microwave for 90 seconds. Easy, right?
This Broiled Salmon recipe is one of my go-to weeknight dinners and for a good reason – it’s so easy to make and truly delicious!
Always slice your fish when it’s Raw.
– It is much easier to make perfect, sharp-cut slices than slicing after the fish is cooked and falls apart.
– It cooks faster.
– You get a much tastier slice of fish since you season it on all sides.
HOW TO MAKE TERIYAKI BROILED SALMON
My go-to Marinade:
- 2+ pounds Salmon fillets
- 1 Tbsp. Honey
- 3 Tbsp. Teriyaki Sauce
- 1 Tbsp. Low-Sodium Soy Sauce
- 2 cloves garlic minced or 1 Tbsp. Garlic powder
- 2 Tbsp. Lemon Juice
- 1 Tbsp. Olive oil
- Sesame Seeds
Slice Salmon into portion size.
In the glass bowl mix marinade ingredients.
Brush Salmon with marinade on all sides.
Let sit for 20 minutes to marinate or cover with a plastic wrap and let marinate in the fridge overnight.
We have tried many Teriyaki Sauces and this is by far is our favorite! Get it in Low-Sodium since Teriyaki sauce tends to have a ton of salt.
One more tip that I have to mention is to always add a tablespoon or so of HONEY to any glaze you use for the fish or chicken. You don’t really taste the honey but it creates a nice crisp and caramelized crust after broiling.
The extra bit of sugar is what glazes the fish to perfection!
Broiled Wild versus Farm-Raised Salmon
Wild Sockeye Salmon can be baked, broiled, grilled, and pan-seared but make sure to not overcook it.
Since Wild salmon is leaner than farm-raised salmon (richer in omega-3 oils) it requires less cooking time.
Place marinated salmon on the foil-lined baking sheet skin side down.
Preheat the broiler to HIGH.
Broil the Salmon for 6 – 8 minutes. Time depends on your oven and the size of your portions.
I usually cut them smaller and Broil on High for about 6 minutes.
Broil less than more, it has to be soft as butter on the inside.
You can bake or broil Salmon, it’s up to you.
For baking, I would suggest preheating the oven to 400°F and bake for about 20 minutes.
Broiling is MUCH quicker and gives you a Beautiful color crust.
