Teriyaki Salmon & Scallions

Teriyaki Salmon & Scallions Recipe

This is a savoury teriyaki sauce without sugar added. If you prefer a sweeter tasting teriyaki sauce, you can add bit of sugar (about 1/2 to 1 tsp), to taste.

Instead of salmon chunks, you can also use the more premium Japanese fillet cut for this recipe.

Check out the ingredients and step-by-step photos on the previous page.


  • 150g salmon fillet deboned & descaled; cut to chunks
  • 1 tbsp (approximate) corn starch
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 5g butter
  • 1 stalk scallion (white portion) cut to uniform diagonal sections

Teriyaki Sauce

  • 1 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 tbsp mirin
  • 1 1/2 tbsp sake
  • 1/2 tsp garlic paste (or 1 tsp minced garlic) optional
  • 1/2 tsp ginger paste (or 1/2 tsp ginger juice) optional
  • 1/2 tsp sliced dried chilli (deseeded) optional


  1. Prepare salmon. Marinate salmon with sake for 10 minutes. Pat dry on kitchen paper towel, then lightly coat the salmon with flour.
  2. Pan fry the salmon in olive oil and butter until lightly browned on both sides. To manage oil splatters, you can use a splatter screen during cooking.
  3. Make teriyaki salmon & scallions. Push the cooked salmon to the side of the pan. Add teriyaki sauce ingredients, stir well and bring the sauce to a boil. Season the sauce to taste (you may add more soy sauce, 1/2 tsp at a time if needed). Arrange salmon pieces evenly in the pan, filling the gaps in the pan with scallions. Cover with lid and cook for about 3 mins on a low simmer, flipping the contents halfway through cooking. Serve with rice.

Cooking Notes:

  1. I am using a 20-cm sauce pan. It is the ideal size if you wish to cook and serve the dish directly in the pan.
  2. The last 3 ingredients of the teriyaki sauce are listed as optional, as they are essential ingredients in an authentic teriyaki sauce. However, they added a depth of flavour to the dish!
  3. I served this teriyaki salmon with Korean purple rice, adding a rich vibrant colour to the table.

  1. This is totally right up my alley! Teriyaki is like a magic sauce, which makes everything so tasty and flavourful.

  2. I roast leeks with sake, soy sauce and sesame oil and they are delicious! I bet these teriyaki scallions have quite similar delicious outcome.
