How to Make Teriyaki Salmon

If you’re making homemade teriyaki sauce, start by whisking together all of the ingredients in a small bowl. In a shallow baking dish, pour 1/4 cup of the teriyaki sauce over the salmon fillets. I like to spoon the sauce over the salmon to make sure each piece is coated really well!! Let the salmon marinate in the fridge for at least 30 minutes but up to four hours. While your salmon is marinating, toss the chopped broccoli with oil and a little bit of salt.

Prep a baking sheet by lightly greasing. Place the marinated salmon skin side down on one half of the baking sheet and add the broccoli to the other half. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the salmon is cooked through and the broccoli is roasted.

While your salmon and broccoli bakes, cook your rice. Then it’s time to assemble! Add rice to the bowl and add salmon, roasted broccoli, cabbage, carrots, avocado, a squeeze of lime and a drizzle of the remaining teriyaki sauce. Garnish with green onion and sesame seeds and serve!

  1. I make this almost every week! My boyfriend is just in love with this dish, too. Honestly, I could eat this every day. It’s the perfect comforting and healthy meal + it makes fantastic leftovers the next day, too! 🙂

  2. This is one of my top fav dinners to make for girls night. I added mango salsa from Whole Foods and sliced almonds. Highly suggest !

  3. I just made these bowls for a quick healthy lunch and my gosh – so so tasty! Recipe couldn’t have been easier and I used pre made brown rice bowls so even quicker.

  4. OH. EM. GEE.

    I made these last night and it was out of this world. I forget to pull out the Salmon earlier and marinate them, so I only let it marinate for 30 minutes, but it was still outstanding. However, when I marinated them I had them in a pyrex dish and I ended up just sticking that whole thing in the oven to allow them to cook in the juice. I am sharing this with everyone!
