Salmon Teriyaki with Wild Rice

Salmon teriyaki is one of my all-time favorite things to eat, so the other day when I came across this recipe from savory sweet life I knew I had to try it! I don’t think I have made any Japanese food on my Blog yet, because it seems complicated and hard to get a hold of the ingredients–but the teriyaki sauce in this recipe called for all the things I already had on hand in my kitchen! This recipe was also one of the quickest, easiest dishes I have made on this Blog! 15 minutes start to finish including preparation! Ok. I kind of cheated and made the wild rice out of a box…. but that’s only because I couldn’t find the real stuff anywhere…. and since that only took 10 minutes, it was the perfect pairing for the salmon! I love this recipe so much, i’m sure it will be a quick-go-to meal in my house! My whole family loved it!

Ingredients:
salmon fillets
salt and pepper
2 tsp olive oil
green onions, slivered
(for the teriyaki sauce) 
1/3 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
1/3 cup cold water
2 teaspoons corn starch
1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon garlic powder
*optional 1 tsp. grated ginger and 1 tsp. red pepper flakes

Directions:
Heat the grill to high (400degF). Season the salmon generously with salt and pepper, then cut into filets
Brush each filet with a little olive oil Cook the salmon skin side up, flesh side down, for 5 minutes.  Turn salmon fillets over and cook for another 4-6 minutes until salmon is cooked through.  Meanwhile, make the teriyaki sauce.

In a small bowl combine the water and corn starch and mix to make a paste. In a medium pan add the rest of the ingredients (sugar, garlic powder, ginger, red pepper flakes and soy sauce)
Then stir in the water and cornstarch paste, and cook on medium heat for 5 minutes stirring occasionally.

Brush the salmon generously with the teriyaki sauce, and serve on wild rice with green onions for garnish 
 Hope you all <3 it too!!
