Heat the oven to 180°C and line a baking tray with baking paper.

Combine all the sauce ingredients and mix well until sugar is dissolved. If sugar is not dissolving, microwave the sauce mixture for 30 seconds and stir until sugar dissolves.

Season salmon with black pepper on both sides, then coat with flour.

Place the salmon on the lined baking tray and bake for about 10 minutes or until it turns slightly golden brown.

Add the sauce into the baking tray and continue baking for about 10 minutes or until the sauce is boiling.

Once the sauce is boiling, turn the salmon over to make sure both sides are coated with the sauce. By now the sauce should have thickened. It is ready to be served.

Dietitian’s note: Serve Teriyaki Salmon with warm brown rice and steamed or mixed vegetable to make your meal more nutritious.
