Teriyaki Salmon and Baby Bok Choy

It’s been a while but what can you do. School is a life ruin-er! 😉

On the bright side, my Dad keeps buying salmon every week because I got him addicted! I’ve made garlic lemon salmon and blackberry salmon and today it’s teriyaki! Buy your salmon frozen and you can make a fabulous weekend meal for the whole family for $20 and it’s not disdainfully unhealthy either – besides all the sugar in the sauce. I guess it might cost more than that if you don’t have stuff like soy sauce and ginger/garlic on hand but I think most people do. Anyhow, enough babble, let’s get cookin’!

Teriyaki Sauce

  • Servings: 4
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Print


  • 1/3 C Water
  • 1/3 C Soy Sauce (low sodium)
  • 1 Clove Garlic, minced
  • 1 Tsp Ginger, grated
  • 2 Tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Honey
  • 2 Tbsp Mirin
  • 1/4 Tsp Sesame Oil
  • 1 Tbsp Cornstarch
  • 1 Tbsp Water
  • 1/8 to 1/4 tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
  • Sesame seeds, to taste


  1. In a saucepan, add everything except the cornstarch slurry, sesame seeds and crushed red pepper. If you’re feeling lazy just use powdered garlic and ginger, to taste.
  2. Simmer until sugar is dissolved.
  3. Mix together the cornstarch and water in a small cup.
  4. Add cornstarch and bring to a boil, cook until desired consistency (will thicken slightly more as it cools).
  5. Add in crushed red pepper and sesame seeds.
  6. Pour over salmon, rice and vegetables. Enjoy!

To cook the bok choy I just put them in boiling salt water for 1 minute. I plated the fish and jasmine rice and poured sauce all over everything. Scallions and sesame seeds go great too! I added that on after I took pictures sorry. Also, had to use my phone because my mom stole the good camera to take pictures of little kids (she’s a kindergarten teacher not a pedophile haha). Enjoy!
