Teriyaki Salmon

This is a true 30 minute meal and not a Rachael Ray 30 minute meal that really takes 1 hour plus. Another benefit is that this one is healthy and good for you. I love salmon and I think I just about perfected it with this recipe.

Teriyaki Salmon

1 salmon portion per person
2 Tbs vegetable oil
1 cup teriyaki sauce
1/2 tsp grated ginger
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
1/2 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp chopped green onion
sesame seeds for garnish

Heat oil in a deep skillet over medium heat. Dust salmon portions with ginger, black pepper, red pepper, and green onions. Add salmon portions to the skillet and cook on each side for 3 minutes. Add teriyaki sauce and sesame oil to skillet and cover. Let the fish simmer on medium low for about 5 minutes on each side or until pink throughout. Thicker portions will take longer. Garnish with sesame seeds and serve.

Tonight I served the salmon with sticky white rice and tender steamed veggies (cabbage, carrots, and celery).
