Recipe: Teriyaki Salmon with Soba Noodles
by SoPo Seafood's Jacqueline Clark AKA The Briny Babe - July 18, 2022
Our simple but amazing teriyaki sauce is not only amazing for salmon, but can be used for chicken or meat dishes as well. You’ll never reach for store-bought teriyaki sauce again after making this deliciously tangy and sweet homemade teriyaki sauce. Teriyaki refers to a style of Japanese cuisine that includes cooking proteins and vegetables in a thick, sweet, and savory sauce. The word loosely translates to “glossy boil,” and can be used as a marinade, basting agent, or dipping sauce.
Authentic Japanese teriyaki sauce combines soy sauce, mirin, sugar, and sake to create s distinctively savory taste. For some added edge, we incorporated some honey, garlic, and ginger. If you’re looking for a healthier spin on this teriyaki sauce, the brown sugar can be swapped for brown coconut sugar, the soy sauce can be swapped for coconut aminos, and the cornstarch can be swapped out for arrowroot powder.

• 1 lb salmon, cut into 4 oz fillets
• 2 TBSP garlic, minced
• 1 tsp ginger, grated
• 2 TBSP Ocean Balance sesame seaweed sprinkles
• 1 tsp sesame oil
• 1/3 cup brown sugar
• 1/3 cup soy sauce
• 1/3 cup rice vinegar
• 1/3 cup water
• 2 TBSP honey
• ½ TBSP cornstarch
• 2 TBSP avocado oil
• 1 cup sugar snap peas
• 2 cups bok choy, leaves chopped roughly
• 2 cups soba noodles
• ¼ cup, chopped green onions
1. Make the Teriyaki Sauce. Combine the garlic, ginger, ½ of the Ocean Balance sesame seaweed sprinkles, and sesame oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook until the ingredients become fragrant, about 2 minutes. Next, add in the brown sugar, and heat until the sugar begins to melt. Add in the soy sauce, and rice vinegar, and stir to combine over low heat. Add in the honey, and stir to combine.
2. Thicken the Teriyaki Sauce: Mix cornstarch in 1/3rd cup cold water; stir until dissolved. Add to the saucepan. Cook and stir sauce until thickened, 5 to 7 minutes. Once thickened, pour into bowl, and let the teriyaki sauce cool, about 30 minutes.
3. Marinate the Salmon: Place ½ cup teriyaki sauce in pyrex dish and coat with teriyaki sauce. Place in refrigerator to allow for salmon to marinate, about 30 minutes to 1 hour.
4. Cook the Salmon: Preheat the oven to 400°F. Cook salmon roughly 15 minutes, or until internal temperature of salmon reaches 145°F. This will depend on thickness of salmon.
5. Prepare the Soba Noodles: Pre-cook the soba noodles according to package instructions. Drain, and set cooked noodles aside.
6. Prepare the Vegetables: Add avocado oil to a medium skillet over medium heat. Add in the sugar snap peas and the chopped bok choy. Sauté until tender, stirring regularly, about 5 minutes. Add in the soba noodles, and continue to stir. Add in ¼ cup teriyaki sauce, and stir to combine.
7. Plating: Place teriyaki soba noodles, sugar snap peas, and bok choy mixture on bottom plate. Top with baked teriyaki salmon. Finish off with ½ tsp Ocean Balance Seaweed Sprinkle, and chopped green onions.
