  • Low-sodium teriyaki sauce
  • 2 (6-ounce) salmon fillets
  • Sesame seeds
  • 2 small zucchini, thinly sliced (alternatively why not try courgettes)
  • 4 scallions, chopped
  • Canola oil


How do you make it?

1. Firstly you combine 5 tablespoons teriyaki sauce and fish in a zip-top plastic bag. Seal and marinate 20 minutes.

2. Toast sesame seeds in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, and set aside.

3. Then drain your fish and throw away the marinade and  add the fish to skillet, and cook 5 minutes.

4. Turn and cook for 5 more minutes over medium-low heat. Remove from skillet, and keep warm.

5. Add the zucchini, scallions, and 2 teaspoons oil to skillet. Sauté 4 minutes, or until lightly browned.

6. And finally stir in 2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, and serve with salmon.

And there you have it, your teriyaki salmon with zucchini!
