It’s a great time to commit to a healthy lifestyle and make small changes to your diet that can lead to a lifetime of heart health. Were always looking for creative ways to eat healthy yet delicious food that will satisfy our hunger. Making a sauce or glaze can seem intimidating or time consuming to some but we promise this recipe is so easy and were serving this as a simple appetizer that requires very few ingredients and cooking time.


The salmon fillet can be baked in the oven for about 15 minutes depending on the thickness of the fillets. You’ll need to marinade the salmon ahead of time for at least 1 hour which allows for the flavors to really come through. While the salmon is baking, be sure to save the marinade which we will use to make he glaze. Heat the marinade in a pan and let it reduce and thicken into a glaze. During the last few minutes of cooking time for the salmon you’ll need to brush some of the glaze overtop and broil the salmon for about 2-3 minutes. This helps form a nice crust on top ensure the marinade really sticks to the salmon. To finish the salmon, brush the fillets with more glaze, top with sesame seeds and broil for one more minute. Once your ready to serve simple brush the remaining glaze over the salmon and sprinkle with shichimi togarashi and voila your healthy snack or appetizer is served.

To eat simply serve the salmon along with aioli, cucumber slices and crostini’s on a serving board. Using a fork you can flake on nice thick pieces of salmon and build your crostini. We like to smear some of that herb aioli on the bottom, next add the cucumbers and finish it off with a nice piece of glazed salmon.

We hope you enjoyed our refreshing teriyaki glazed salmon appetizer!
