  • 4 6 oz. Salmon Filets

Orange Teriyaki Sauce:

  • 2 tsp Cornstarch
  • 4 tsp Water
  • 2/3 cup Orange Juice
  • 1 tsp Orange Zest
  • 1/3 cup Soy Sauce
  • 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 tsp Ginger minced
  • 2 cloves Garlic minced
  • 1/2 tsp Sesame Oil


  • Sesame Seeds optional
  • Red Pepper Flakes optional
  • Chopped Green Onions optional


  • In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and water. Add all sauce ingredients to a small saucepan including cornstarch mixture. Bring sauce to a low simmer and cook for about 3-5 minutes. When sauce lightly thickens, remove from heat and transfer to a bowl to cool.
  • While your sauce is cooling, preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Line a baking sheet with a lightly oiled sheet of foil. Place salmon filets on the sheet and baste generously with sauce, reserving about half of the sauce for later use.
  • Place salmon in the oven and bake for 14 minutes. When salmon is nice and flakey, it's ready.
  • Remove salmon from the oven and baste with sauce again. Place salmon under the broiler for about a minute or until you get a golden lightly charred top.
  • Serve salmon over a bed of steamed rice with a sprinkle of red pepper flakes, chopped green onion and sesame seeds. Enjoy!


*Store leftover salmon in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days.
* If you don't have fresh garlic substitute for 1 tsp garlic powder
* If you don't have fresh ginger substitute for 1/2 tsp ground ginger.
