Salmon Teriyaki

This nice and simple Salmon Teriyaki is so simple but so delicious, whats best is that the teriyaki sauce is home made. Best served with freshly steamed rice.

Writing this blog post still make me drool because when I made this at home it was perfectly cooked one of the best simple meals I ever made, sweet and savoury sauce on a lightly browned and crispy salmon skin while retaining its moisture. The layers of salmon fat is not melted but cooked to the proper temperature giving it a nice flavour and texture on every bite.

I hope you can recreate this at the comfort of your own kitchen and experience the taste and flavour like we did.
