Teriyaki Salmon Dinner Recipe

paleoblogsalmndinner

Salmon is my all-time favorite seafood. Growing up in Skagit Valley, an hour north
of Seattle, we had access to some of the world’s best salmon. Summer months were
spent enjoying barbequed salmon a few times each week.

This sweet and savory Teriyaki Salmon recipe takes fresh, wild-caught salmon to a very delicious place. Serve it with Roasted Veggies and this Balsamic Spinach Salad for one seriously satisfying Paleo meal.

Here’s what you need…

For the Teriyaki Salmon:

  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons fresh ginger, crushed
  • 1 cup coconut aminos
  • 2 Tablespoons pure maple syrup, grade b
  • 4 fillets, wild caught salmon
  1. Combine all the marinade ingredients in a large ziplock bag. Add the salmon fillets and evenly cover with marinade. Place in fridge for 40-60 minutes.
  2. To Bake: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Remove salmon fillet from marinade and place in a large glass pan. Strain the minced garlic and ginger pieces from marinade and arrange on the fillet. Bake for 20 minutes. Turn on broiler for additional 5 minutes.
  3. To Grill: Preheat grill to medium. Lightly oil the grate. Remove salmon from marinade and place on the grill. Grill each side for 6-8 minutes or until the fish flakes easily.
