10-minute Teriyaki Salmon

Teriyaki glazed salmon in a matter of minutes! Pair it with some white rice or even noodles and you have a meal all ready to go.

I love my little helpers in the kitchen (no am not talking about my kids – they don’t necessarily make life easier in the kitchen!) – I’m talking about store bought sauces, pastes and frozen food ready to be air-fried. 

In this post, I’m gonna share how we can take two pieces of salmon to teriyaki heaven and back. I use a store bought sauce, mix in some water, splash in some lemon juice and add in some minced garlic.  Pour this mix over the salmon.

Pop said salmon in the oven for 12 minutes and it’s ready!

I stumbled upon this brand Kikkoman years back when doing my grocery run. Tried it and liked it. Worth mentioning that the same brand has the same teriyaki sauce in a black bottle (not sure what is the difference) but we find the one in the orange bottle (pictured) so much nicer.

We usually have this with white rice and a veggie or egg dish on the side. The sauce is thick and almost syrupy like and imparts so much flavour when mixed in with the rice. My kids love this and it’s a great way to get them to eat salmon.

I get my salmon slices from the grocer – in a pack of two fillets. I usually cut them in the middle nicely and pop them in an oven proof dish lined with foil (which catches the sauce nicely once done).

After I’ve put in the sauce mix – I pop them in the oven at 200C. The sauce comes out bubbly and sticky. Great with rice or some flavoured noodles. Try it!

10-Minute Teriyaki Salmon

Using a store-bought sauce, these teriyaki salmon fillets are ready in just 10 mins and dinner is done!


  • 2 Salmon Fillets Cut into 2 fillets each.

Mix in a bowl:

  • 5 tbsp Kikkoman Teriyaki Sauce
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp lemon juice


  • Pre-heat oven to 200C.
  • Rinse and pat dry salmon. Place in oven proof dish lined with foil. With a sharp knife, score the skin (optional).
  • Pour sauce mix onto salmon pieces, lifting up salmon fillets so sauce can run below.
  • Pop into oven for 10 minutes (or increase to 12 mins, if you prefer). Garnish with sesame seeds. Scoop out sauce onto rice. Done.


Top tips:
  • Don't overdo the lemon juice it can alter the taste of the sauce.
