  • Prepare the teriyaki sauce. You can make this in advance. If so, be sure to reheat in a saucepan as it will congeal upon refrigeration.
  • Heat pan or skillet over medium heat. Add oil and pan sear salmon (skin side down), pressing down firmly with spatula. for about 3-4 minutes or until salmon filets are opaque halfway up the sides.
  • Add the teriyaki sauce on top. You can control the amount. Lower the heat to medium-low, cover the pan to steam the salmon for 10 minutes. this will make it moist and perfectly cooked.
  • Remove from heat and drizzle with more sauce, if desired.


How to serve to babies:
Remove all the bones and cook until it's cooked through and flaky. Offer finger-shaped, 1-2 finger-width pieces of the cooked fish. This will make it easier for baby to grab with their palm.
You can also flake the cooked salmon into tiny pieces for younger babies. If you're doing baby led weaning, these small pieces are hard to pick up for babies who haven't developed the pincer grasp yet. Therefore, mix into oatmeal, rice, yogurt, mashed vegetables, etc to make it easier for the baby to eat.
