Japanese Teriyaki Salmon With NO Fructose (Bad Sugar FREE) Homemade Sauce!

I love Japanese and I love teriyaki.

Oh hang on, I love sake as well…and did I forget about sushi?

I just absolutely adore Japanese cuisine, their flavors, their sauce and how they are able to create amazing new dishes and ideas using simple fresh ingredients.

Yes! Just look at the way they eat fish…..you don’t even need to cook it!

Kill, Clean and Eat!

Too easy!

And same goes with many other foods, there’s always a new way to eat things.

They just keep surprising me,

time after time…

…after time!

Okay I didn’t mean it like that…

But take teriyaki sauce for example. A world known indulgence using a simple mix of mirin, sugar and soy sauce. You can use it on just about any type of meat you can think of.

Think chicken, beef, pork, and what about fish?

That’s exactly what I did here tonight with my beautiful piece of salmon fillet.

Yup, I’m gonna make an easy and tasty teriyaki salmon for the family, a dish which we haven’t had for a while.

To be honest, I was actually getting a little tired with my normal baked or pan fried salt and pepper method (even though it is simple, quick…and QUICKER!!), but when you eat the same thing over and over again, for a period of time, you just kind of lose interest.

Given the fact that we eat fish at least 3 times a week, so I don’t really need my 4 year old son telling me that my method of cooking fish was getting a little boring. He basically stopped eating them since last week.

Guess I spoiled him too much with the amount of varieties I usually put on the table, when I’m not too too busy. But hey….I’m just a doing a good father’s role here and that is, putting “good” food on the table.

So today I’m going to share with you a really simple, insanely delicious teriyaki salmon recipe that might redefining your way of eating fish forever.

First, you head to your local Asian supermarket, preferably a Japanese grocer and then you simply ask for a special sauce known as the “Teriyaki Sauce”.

Easy, right?

Got you there for a second, didn’t I?

Well, you really can buy this type of sauce from an Asian grocery, but what’s the fun in that? Why not just make a homemade teriyaki sauce yourself, from scratch?

And we all know how “healthy” store bought sauces are, right? The hidden additives, chemically processed flavors, do you really want me to go on?

For something as simple as a teriyaki sauce…like seriously, just do it!

I promise, this homemade marinade sauce is very easy and fast to make, that you won’t even notice it and you’re done!

And…I’ll also show you:

  • How to marinade the salmon properly
  • The healthier sugar to use (I used a type with NO fructose. So…it’s Bad Sugar FREE!)
  • Which soy sauce for the best tasting?

And then I’ll eat the fish for you…

Kidding!

Here’s my tasty teriyaki salmon recipe.

So that’s it, a delicious and easy salmon teriyaki using one pan only!

And jf you cooked the fish perfectly (you just know it when the meat comes out flaky, juicy and tender, right?), then this rich and thick homemade teriyaki sauce is only going take that lovely glazed salmon to another level!

A word of warning though, especially those with kids. Once you made this gorgeous meal for your family, they are literally gonna beg you to cook it again…and again!

Trust me, I’m talking from experience here.

Just don’t say I didn’t warn you 🙂
