Teriyaki-Inspired Poached Salmon

My father-in-law was a very good cook.  One of his staple meals was to bake meat in a homemade teriyaki-inspired sauce, typically pork or chicken.  I always liked the clean flavor he achieved compared to sugary store-bought sauces.  This recipe is inspired by many meals my father-in-law cooked for us way back when.  I love to use fresh squeezed orange juice here.  If you want to bump up the orange flavor, you can also add a little of the grated orange zest to the poaching liquid.  This salmon is delicious beside stir-fried vegetables.  Serves 2-3.


1.    Combine orange juice, coconut aminos, ginger and garlic.
2.    Place salmon fillets onto the bottom of a large skillet or saucepan.  Pour poaching liquid over top of the salmon and let sit 15 minutes before turning on the heat.
3.    Bring to a boil over high heat and then cover and reduce temperature to maintain a simmer.
4.    Simmer for 10-12 minutes, until salmon is fully cooked and opaque throughout.  Enjoy!


Loved it! I have had to cut out so many foods that everything tastes the same! This was really full of flavour :) thank you for rescuing me! The family loved it too and so easy.
