Serving: 4

Ingredients : 

4 (6 oz.) salmon fillets
For the Teriyaki Sauce:
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup water
3 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 Tbsp. honey
1 Tbsp. mirin
2 tsp. garlic, minced
1 tsp. ginger, crushed
1 pinch red pepper chili flakes (optional)
Cornstarch Slurry:
2 tsp. cornstarch
2 tsp. water
Garnish:
Scallions (green onions) and sesame seeds for garnish

Instructions : 

1. To bake, the oven needs to be preheated to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. You may make the sauce by combining the ingredients in a bowl and whisking them together. Put the sauce
in a small pan and cook it on low to medium heat.
3. To thicken, bring to a simmer and add a slurry made from cornstarch and water, whisking constantly. Add
extra cornstarch slurry if you want the sauce to be thicker. Leave aside.
4. Bake the fresh salmon fillets skin-side down in an oven-safe dish or on a baking sheet. Coat the tops of the
fish with teriyaki sauce by pouring some over them. (1–2 tablespoons)
5. The salmon is done when it reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit, which usually takes 12-15 minutes in the oven.
6. Add extra sauce and sprinkle with green onions and sesame seeds for a tasty finish. Complement with rice and steamed broccoli.
