Ginger Teriyaki Salmon


Every now and then, I come up with a recipe that sticks with me. Like one of those phone numbers you can’t seem to forget. A tried and true one that becomes sort of a go to– one that you will make when you have company. Yep, this one is a keeper. It’s super simple but packs a major flavor punch. It’s also pretty healthy, too.

This teriyaki salmon recipe is actually inspired by something my mom makes on a weekly basis. I added a couple things (ginger, sesame seeds, green onion) and the result is still fantastic. I usually serve this with a side of sauteed kale and baked sweet potato with butter and a dash of brown sugar.

  • 4 Salmon Filets ($15.00)
  • 1/4 C Teriyaki Sauce ($.50)
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger ($.20)
  • 1 tbs brown sugar ($.05)
  • 2 tbs minced garlic ($.03)
  • 4 tsp sesame seeds ($.15)
  • 2 tbs minced green onion ($.10)

Total: $16.03 or $4.00 per serving


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Combine teriyaki, ginger, sugar and minced garlic in large bowl
  3. Add salmon filets to marinade and refrigerate (covered for 1 hour)
  4. Place salmon filets on baking sheet with aluminum foil and olive oil spray
  5. Sprinkle 1 tsp sesame seeds and green onions on each filet of salmon and pat down
  6. Bake uncovered for 15 minutes
