10 Minute Salmon with Teriyaki Ginger Sauce

Seared salmon with teriyaki ginger sauce is a quick seafood meal you can prepare and serve in 10 minutes.  Asian flavors makes salmon so flavorful and mouthwatering, even the kids will eat it.

Whether you grill or sear on stove-top, fillets of salmon cook up very quickly; and therefore, by the time the steamed rice is ready to serve, so will this wonderful salmon with teriyaki ginger sauce to be by its side.

Our family loves the flavors of fresh ginger and garlic in the sauce.  They even mixed some of the ginger sauce into the rice, making it more flavorful.  Dinner was easy and delicious!

After the super bowl weekend, we prefer getting back to eating fish and salads, basically eating light for the rest of the week, don’t you?

 Have a great day!  It’s snowing in New York, so stay warm!  Thanks for stopping by!

10 Minute Salmon with Teriyaki Ginger Sauce

  • 4 Salmon fillets ( 1.5 pounds)
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced vertically
  • 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. finely grated fresh ginger
  • 1 garlic clove- minced
  • 1/4 tsp. corn starch
  • 2 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • cooking spray
  • 1/2 tsp. toasted sesame seeds to garnish
  • 4 cups of steamed rice, for serving

In a large frying pan over medium heat. Lightly spray pan with cooking spray.
Add the 4 fillets of salmon, skin side up, and sear them for about 2 to 3 minutes, until they are cooked half way through.

                                              In the meantime, slice the green onions.

Peel back the skin on the ginger root, and grate ginger.
Then mince the garlic clove.

Gently flip Salmon fillets over and continue to grill for another 2 to 3 minutes.  Turn off the heat and set aside.

In the meantime, in a small sauté pan, add soy sauce, sugar, ginger, garlic, corn starch, olive oil and half the green onions. Reserve some green onions to garnish.
Simmer the sauce on low heat for 2 minutes, until the sugar dissolves and sauce thickens slightly.

If the salmon fillets are fully cooked (to your preference), then transfer the salmon to a  serving platter.  Pour the teriyaki sauce directly over the salmon.

Garnish some sesame seeds and green onions on top. 
Serve with some steamed rice on the side. Serve immediately.

Serves 4

    Goodness these are some beautiful fillets! We love salmon with Teriyaki but I've never pan fried the fish before. We marinate then broil or grill – but I think I like this method too! The photos are outstanding.

    I love salmon, it's so delicious, you salmon looks great! Your recipe looks delicious too. My wife and I have salmon at least 2-3 times a week. I grill it all the time but we change up the vegetable each time, from broccoli, asparagus, Brussel sprouts, sweet potato, etc.. I am going to try your recipe! 🙂
