This Grilled Teriyaki Salmon is tender, flaky, easy, and delicious! Healthy to boot. The teriyaki sauce is the best sauce you’ll ever brush onto any grilled meats.


  • 4 salmon fillets, 6-8 oz each, about 1-inch thick
  • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

For the Teriyaki Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup Teriyaki Sauce (such as Kikkoman)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
  • Juice of 2 fresh orange wedges
  • 1 1/2 TB cornstarch, fully dissolved in 1-2 TB water
  • dash of ground ginger
  • Garnish: toasted sesame seeds, thinly sliced green onions


  1. Teriyaki Sauce: In a heavy medium pan, combine all sauce ingredients. Whisk to combine well. Bring to a boil. Lower to simmer and whisk until sauce is thickened, about 1 minute. Keep warm.
  2. Prep Salmon: thoroughly dry salmon fillets with paper towels. Sprinkle a light layer of kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper on both sides (or just top side, if bottom has skin on.)
  3. Cook: lightly grease and heat outdoor grill (or indoor stovetop grill pan) until very hot (smoky.) Lay salmon fillets on grill and cook on medium-high heat until just-cooked. Do not over-cook. Generally, about 2-3 min per side, depending on thickness. Let cooked fish rest at room temp for a few minutes before serving.Β 
  4. Serve: drizzle generously with teriyaki sauce and garnish as desired. Serve immediately. Delicious over a bed of rice or over a plate of green salad.
