This Grilled Teriyaki Salmon Recipe is my family’s favorite recipe for salmon. Packed with healthy omega-3 fatty acids, this meal is nutritious and incredibly delicious; it’s a recipe the whole family will love.

Marinated in a teriyaki sauce, wrapped in aluminum foil, and thrown on the grill, this recipe is simple, easy, and delicious.

I love it because we all enjoy salmon without the smell of fish lingering in the house for hours.

I also love that salmon can be served with any side. We love the traditional side of asparagus, which we grill simultaneously with the salmon, making this meal ready in less than 25 minutes!

While I have never been a huge fan of salmon – mainly because I didn’t have much seafood growing up – since marrying my husband, I have learned that you can cook fish in various ways and find the type of fish and seasoning you like. So, for me, I am all about adding a teriyaki glaze. This is my favorite way to prepare and eat salmon & this Teriyaki Salmon Recipe can’t be beaten.

Sockeye Salmon

  • While there is a variety of salmon to pick from, I choose Sockeye Salmon because of its deep red color and the fact that it stands up well when grilling.
  • Sockeye is traditionally oilier. Therefore, it has a more robust flavor. Sockeye, like most salmon, is rich in omega-3s. This is a heart-healthy choice of protein for grilling.

How to grill teriyaki salmon

There are two ways to grill salmon.

Direct grilling is where you grill the salmon directly on the metal grates on your grill. To do this, I would spray your grates with cooking oil to prevent salmon from sticking to the grill. Heat grill to 350°F to 375°F and cook for 3-5 minutes per side; salmon will be thoroughly cooked once the fish begins to flake when pulling it with a fork.


  • Sockeye Salmon filets

Looking for a delicious seafood recipe that the whole family will love? This teriyaki salmon recipe is easy to make and insanely delicious!


  • 2 10 ounce Sockeye Salmon filets
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup Signature Selection Island Teriyaki Sauce

Teriyaki Drizzle

  • 1/2 cup Signature Selection Island Teriyaki Sauce


  • Preheat your grill to 375°F.
  • Season fish lightly with salt and pepper and add to Ziploc bag. Add your choice of marinade. I went with Safeway's Signature Selection Island Teryaki Sauce. It is fantastic! Set in the refrigerator and let it marinate up to an hour.
  • On a sheet pan, add 2-3 layers of foil. Make sure each foil sheet is long enough to wrap up your fish. I cook to filets side by side in the same piece of foil.
  • Seal the foil "packet", set on the preheated grill and grill for about 13-18 minutes.
    Check your salmon 10 minutes into grilling, as each grill varies in temperature and you want to make sure not to overcook your fish!

Teriyaki Drizzle

  • To add a glaze on your fish after it is done cooking, add 1/2 cup of the teriyaki sauce to a small sauce pan and cook on medium/high on the stove top until it starts to thicken – about 8-12 minutes. Stir often to make sure it isn't burning to the bottom of the pan.
