Ingredients You Need

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and line large baking sheet with unbleached parchment paper or silicone baking mat.


In a small bowl, whisk brown sugar, soy sauce, oil, vinegar, garlic and ginger. Make sure sugar dissolves completely. Divide marinade into 2 bowls – 2/3 and 1/3 of it.


Place salmon skin side down on prepared baking sheet and brush with 1/3rd of marinade.


Bake for 15 minutes for thin salmon, and for 20 minutes for thicker/wider slices. Check with a fork after 15 minutes – if salmon flakes easily, it is done.


While salmon is cooking, add 2/3 marinade to a small pot with and cook for a few minutes, until thickened and bubbly. Remove salmon from the oven, brush with teriyaki glaze, sprinkle with green onion and sesame seeds.



I like to serve salmon with Instant Pot brown rice or Instant Pot quinoa as a healthy side. And to make dinner really quick, I just parboil broccoli or make roasted asparagus.


Refrigerate leftovers for up to 5 days in an airtight container.
