Roasted Teriyaki Salmon is the perfect healthy weeknight dish. Use the leftovers for a delicious salad the next day!
Salmon is a dish that frequents our dinner table often. It is healthy and cooks in under 30 minutes.
It is one of my favorite fishes to cook and the teriyaki sauce gives it lots of flavor. What more can you ask for in a meal?
Once the holidays are over, I am always looking for light healthy meals to cook in the new year. While salads are the nutrition bomb, I crave comfort food in the winter.
This salmon is light but can still be considered comfort food. You can serve it with a variety of different sides.
I have a few tips that I like to give if you will be making this recipe. Always start with fresh salmon. It tastes best if it is bought that day or one day before.
I never keep salmon in the fridge for more than a day or so. For easy clean up, line the pan with parchment paper or foil.
I love peeling it off after dinner and not having to worry about scrubbing any pans.
My last advice is to make sure you don’t overcook this fish. It is done when it can be flaked with a fork. It is better to pull out of the oven too early than overcook.
It can always be put back in for a minute or two if it needs extra cooking.
Leftovers are great and I like to put them in a salad for lunch the next day. I use this salmon to make Asian Nicoise Salad and substitute the leftover salmon for the tuna.
Try making this healthy salmon dish! The recipe can be easily doubled so you have leftovers the next day.
