Easy baked teriyaki salmon ready in 15 minutes! Marinated oven baked salmon with a sweet teriyaki glaze. Serve this teriyaki salmon with veggies and rice for an easy Asian inspired meal!
This easy baked teriyaki salmon is perfect for a quick meal! It only takes 15 minutes to get this delicious meal on the table. 15 minutes!! The salmon is so moist and flavorful because of the marinade. It's a simple, classic teriyaki marinade with only three ingredients. Soy sauce, mirin, and brown sugar. It's so versatile, you can use it as a marinade for any protein. Chicken, beef, pork, shrimp, even tofu.
I made this oven baked salmon for dinner and couldn't believe how it easy it was to make. The salmon only needs to bake for about 7 - 8 minutes for a perfect medium-well salmon. I love eating my salmon just slightly under so the layers are soft and moist. If you prefer to fully cook your salmon, bake it for 10 minutes total (this is for a 5 - 7 oz piece of salmon).
Baked Teriyaki Salmon Tips:
- Marinate your salmon - the longer the better. I recommend marinating the salmon for at least 10 minutes while you prepare the other ingredients. You can also marinate the salmon overnight in the fridge for an even better tasting salmon!
- Albumin - What is it? How to get rid of it?
- Albumin is that white substance that sometimes forms on your salmon when cooked. It's coagulated protein that gets pushed out of the salmon as it cooks. Totally fine, harmless, and edible but can look really unappetizing.
- So how do you get rid of it? Brining or marinating your salmon in a salty solution for 10 minutes helps dissolve the muscle fibers so that the albumin doesn't appear during the cooking process.
Pair the oven baked teriyaki salmon with crunchy sugar snap peas for some texture. This side takes 5 minutes to make and can be made while the salmon is marinating or baking in the oven.
This oven baked salmon with teriyaki glaze has become a favorite go to meal when I don't have much time and want something healthy. I hope you get to try this recipe!
