Healthy Teriyaki Salmon

I love teriyaki salmon – well, I love teriyaki sauce on anything! But I used to be afraid of using it because it has so much sugar. I am very proud to say that this teriyaki salmon recipe, despite being very low in sugar, is AMAZING. It’s savory/sweet, intensely flavored, easy and quick (no marinating needed) – I can’t wait to use the same glaze on chicken and beef!

Yield: 4 servings


Teriyaki glaze:
  • 2 tablespoons light soy sauce
  • ⅛ teaspoon konjac flour (or 1 teaspoon cornstarch)
  • 2 tablespoons dry white wine or sake
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon minced ginger
  • 4 (6 oz) wild salmon fillets
  • Olive oil spray (make your own using a spray bottle)
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds, toasted a few minutes in a warm skillet over medium heat


  1. In a small saucepan, whisk together the soy sauce and konjac flour. Add the white wine, honey, minced garlic and minced ginger, whisking to combine.
  2. Heat the glaze over medium heat, whisking often, 3-4 minutes, until it thickens into syrup. Remove from heat.
  3. Heat broiler on high and position a rack 3-4 inches below flame (top rack). Line a large baking sheet with foil and spray it with olive oil spray.
  4. Place the salmon pieces on the foil and lightly spray them with olive oil. Broil 5-6 minutes, or until opaque.
  5. Remove the salmon fillets onto a serving platter. Brush with the teriyaki glaze, sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve.
