Baked Sweet and Spicy Teriyaki Salmon


My new favorite Salmon dish is here!

I love those easy sheet pan dinners where the oven does all the work for me.

For this recipe, all you need to do is prep the salmon and combine some ingredients in a little bowl then pour it over your sheet pan. Voila! You're pretty much done.

Easy side dishes for this recipe are roasted green beans and steamed rice.

I always have steamed Thai Jasmine rice prepared for the week and this salmon recipe is a great meal prep idea. It's succulent, flakey, sweet and spicy. The most perfect bite. Reheated in the microwave for the next day is still just as good. Not dry at all.

And you guys know... I am all about meal prepping! My husband works 6 days a week and I work 5.

Easy and delicious meals are prevalent in my house and if I can reheat it for the next day or two. I'm gonna do it! And you best believe it will taste just as good as the day I made it :)

Hope you enjoy!

  • 2.5 lb salmon fillet

  • ¼ cup low sodium soy sauce

  • ½ tsp sesame seed oil

  • 1 tbsp chili garlic sauce

  • 3 garlic cloves, minced

  • ½ tsp kosher salt

  • ½ tsp fresh cracked pepper

  4. Place the salmon over the marinade with skin side up. Then, preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. (While the oven is preheating, the salmon will sit in the marinade taking in all that flavor)

  6. Bake for about 15 minutes. Serve with steamed rice and veggies, top with sriracha and green onions.
