It’s fish day, and what better way to enjoy a fish day than with this delicious baked teriyaki salmon! Tender and flaky salmon baked in the most amazing homemade teriyaki sauce. This baked teriyaki salmon is a great healthy dinner option perfect for everybody! Serve this with a variety of sides such as white/brown rice, quinoa, cauliflower rice, baked or roasted potatoes, roasted veggies, or even over salads.

This baked teriyaki salmon is another easy and quick weeknight dinner that everyone will surely crave over and over again! I use soy sauce for the teriyaki sauce, which has gluten from wheat and soybeans. If you want a gluten-free option, look for a gluten-free teriyaki sauce. If you prefer a thicker teriyaki sauce as I do, you could try adding a little more flour or simply use thickeners such as cornstarch, arrowroot powder, Tapioca Flour, or rice flour. In a small amount of water, dissolve the thickener of your choice and stir this into the sauce.


1 Tablespoon Sesame Seeds

1 Green Onion, sliced


4 Skinless Salmon Fillets about 6 ounces each

Teriyaki Sauce:

2 Garlic Cloves, minced

⅓ c. Low-sodium soy sauce

2-3 Tablespoons of Water

¼ c. Fresh orange juice

2 Tablespoons Honey

1 Tablespoon Minced fresh ginger

½ Lemon, juiced

½ Tablespoon Gluten-free flour

1 Teaspoon Chili Flakes or to taste
