This is a great, flavorful way to get the healthy fats and nutrients from a nice piece of wild-caught salmon without falling into the bland, salmon rut. It’s a savory, slightly sweet, asian addition to the fish you need to be adding to your diet. Enjoy!


For Teriyaki sauce:

  • 1/4 cup tamari
  • 1/4 cup dry sherry
  • 1 TBSP sesame oil
  • 1 TBSP freshly grated gingerroot
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

For the fish:

  • 2 lbs. wild Alaskan salmon fillets
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges


Combine the ingredients for the sauce. Place fish in a glass dish and pour the marinade over top. Marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours.

Grill the fish or bake on a broiler setting. Cook 3-4 minutes on each side while basting with leftover marinade. Serve fish with lemon wedges.
