Teriyaki Salmon

Hafa Adai Everyone!

My teriyaki salmon is one of my go-to dinners since it’s so simple to make. This savory dish is definitely a classic with the light salmon and savory, umami, teriyaki sauce. My family likes to eat this with the extra sauce and some rice, but you can also serve this as onigiri with some spicy mayo!

We have this at least every other week since we almost always have the ingredients on hand, and if you make my recipes often then so will you 😉 .
