Yummy Teriyaki Salmon

Ingredients

  • 1 lb salmon, cut into two pieces
  • 1 tablespoon oil

Honey Teriyaki Glaze

  • 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce or low sodium Tamari (gluten free soy sauce)
  • 2 tablespoons Japanese cooking sake
  • 4 tablespoons honey

Directions

Preheat the oven to broil. Mix all the ingredients in the Honey Teriyaki Glaze together. Whisk to blend well. Add the salmon and put in refrigerator to marinate (the longer the better to absorb all the flavors). Line a cookie sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray. Put salmon on the top rack and broil for 10-12 minutes. If it starts to burn, place a sheet of foil on top. Take out of oven, let sit for 5 minutes and garnish with sesame seeds and scallion.
