Marinade 1 h
Preparation 10 min

Cooking 15 min

200 calories per serving 


2 tbsp soy sauce, low-sodium   30 mL
2 tbsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed   3/4 lemon
1 tbsp brown sugar   12 g
1/2 tsp sesame seed oil   2.5 mL
1/2 tsp gingerroot, grated   2 g
1 clove garlic, minced    
300 g salmon fillet    


  1. In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients but the salmon. Put the salmon in a shallow dish, then add about half of the marinade then keep the rest aside. Turn the salmon to coat it well. Cover and let stand either 1 h at room temperature or overnight in the refrigerator.
  2. Preheat the outdoor grill or the oven's broiler.
  3. Place the salmon onto a hot rack or into a broiler pan at about 10 cm (4 in) from the heat source. After 5 min, brush the salmon with some of the reserved marinade. Continue to cook for about 5 min until fish is opaque and flakes easily. It is important to check with a fork to see if the fish is cooked through. Top salmon with remaining teriyaki mixture then serve.
