Easy Teriyaki Salmon with Vegetables Recipe
The beauty of this recipe is the ingredients aren't difficult to find and apart from rice, it's all made using one pan! I love meals like this, and sheet pan meals rotate through my kitchen often. For this recipe you'll need four salmon fillets, fresh sugar snap peas, carrots and onion. You'll also need extra virgin olive oil, salt, teriyaki sauce, brown sugar and crushed red pepper flakes to season along with chunks of sweet fresh pineapple. Kitchen tools you'll need: A large sheet pan, a sharp knife and chopping board, a pineapple corer if you have one, a mixing bowl and a spatula for serving.
How to Make the Best Baked Teriyaki Salmon and Vegetables Recipe
- Ingredients you'll need to make sheet pan Baked Teriyaki Salmon and Vegetables: Four salmon fillets, sugar snap peas, carrots, red onion, olive oil, garlic salt, black pepper, teriyaki sauce, light brown sugar, garlic, crushed red pepper flakes, fresh pineapple, toasted sesame seeds and green onion for garnishing. You can also add ¼ teaspoon of ground ginger to the sauce for extra flavor. Fresh ginger may burn while roasting.
- When choosing the salmon, try to choose fillets that are close to even thickness. Thinner portions will cook more quickly than a thicker fillet. Adjust the baking time accordingly depending on the thickness of the salmon pieces used.
- It's helpful to place the vegetables into a mixing bowl to season and toss with olive oil. Should you choose, you could also toss them into a large Ziploc bag, then seal and shake. The flavor of roasted vegetables glazed ever so lightly with the sweet teriyaki sauce will ensure they brown and char slightly for added flavor.
- If sugar snap peas aren't available, you may opt to use one pound of trimmed asparagus instead.
- You can adjust the amount of crushed red pepper flakes to suit your desired level of heat or you can omit them altogether, if that's your preference.
- Fresh pineapple is the ideal choice for this baked salmon recipe as it holds up the roasting process the best. If you have one, a pineapple corer and slicer will be your best friend for preparing it to bake. While it's not a tool you'll use daily, once you have one to core a fresh pineapple, you'll never look back. It also peels and slices the pineapple at the same time. It doesn't get any better than that.
- Toasted sesame seeds form the perfect topping for the baked salmon and enhances the Asian inspired flavors. To toast your own, place plain unsalted sesame seeds into a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Stir using a silicone spatula until fragrant and lightly golden. This happens quickly, don't walk away or they will burn. Immediately remove them from the pan and let them cool while the salmon bakes.
- This recipe for Baked Teriyaki Salmon is best when it's made and served fresh. Like most seafood, it's not ideal for reheating.
