Huge salmon fans are in this family and this teriyaki salmon recipe is a winner with just 4 ingredients! It’s so simple and you can have dinner in less than 30 minutes without any marinating, but is flavorful and moist.
My life is super busy, and I wish I had time to cook but some night there is just no energy left. I have a few meals on hand that take almost zero effort and can be ready in about 30 minutes. I would probably waste more time searching the fridge for something to eat. This Asian Salmon Baked in Foil is definitely that kind of meal. Plus, it’s salmon which is super healthy with omega-3s and high quality protein.
We love super easy dinner ideas around here for busy nights, like this salmon. When there’s not much time, I often make Supreme Chicken Nachos, Teriyaki Chicken Kebabs, or Cabbage Beef Soup because they take less than 30 minutes to make!
In my cookbooks, I have a “no recipe” recipe section. It’s a list I refer to weekly for inspiration and ideas of what to make for dinner that doesn’t require steps or endless ingredients I may, or may not, have on hand. I can find main dishes like BBQ Chicken (with or without buns), quesadillas, and steak are listed by their protein classification. I also have pages for side dishes, salads, and the classic “Mommy too Tired to Cook” category. It is one of the best things about my personal cooking scrapbook.
This salmon is listed on that page. Although, I never measure anything with this meal, it is so simple that it is always perfect. Don’t worry though, I definitely measured so you can reproduce this meal. I always use Atlantic Salmon fillets and sweet teriyaki sauce will do but I use Yoshida’s Sauce.
This also happens to be my son’s favorite dinner ever! (except cheeseburgers, which nothing can compete with) He ate it even as a toddler and one of the first foods that was introduced as an infant (although we drastically lowered the soy sauce for sodium intake reasons).
Teriyaki Baked Salmon in Foil
- 1 salmon filet
- 2 tsp soy sauce
- 1 tsp teriyaki sauce
- 1 tsp rice wine
- pepper to taste fresh cracked preferably
- Pre-heat oven to 375. Line foil in bottom and sides of baking dish. Add soy sauce, teriyaki, and rice wine. Place the salmon in the baking dish and flip over so that both sides are well coated. Fish fillets should not touch. Sprinkle pepper over salmon to taste. Cooking times will depend on the thickness of the fish but should be 15-20 minutes. When the fish flakes and the center is a uniform color throughout, the fish is perfect.
