Teriyaki Baked Salmon in foil. A super easy and healthy dinner that takes 20 minutes to make!


  • 4 salmon filets skin on
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • ¼ cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 tablespoon light brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ginger mined
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon water


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. To make the sauce add oil and garlic to a medium saucepan. Cook for 1 minute.
  3. Add in soy sauce, water, honey, brown sugar and ginger. Bring to a simmer and cook for 2 minutes.
  4. In a small bowl mix together the cornstarch and water until combined. Slowly add this to the teriyaki sauce and whisk until the sauce has thickened. The sauce should be thick enough to coat the back of the spoon.
  5. Line out 4 sheets of aluminum foil lightly oil each. Place a salmon filet on each piece of aluminum foil and brush the salmon with the teriyaki sauce.
  6. Fold up the edges of the foil and place wrapped salmon filet on top of a baking sheet.
  7. Place in the oven and cook for 12-15 minutes, or until the fish is fully cooked.
  8. Take out of the oven and remove the skin from each salmon filet. The skin should be very easy to peel off.
  9. Serve immediately over rice or with a salad.
