Selecting Your Salmon

This recipe is versatile and can be made with any type of salmon you like. You can use whole filets or individual filets, skin on or skin off. Just keep in mind that you may need to adjust the cooking time if you choose sockeye salmon (it will cook faster since it has lower fat content). 

Norwegian Salmon

This salmon has a delicate flavor and firm texture, with a medium fat content and light color.  

King Salmon

This salmon has a rich, buttery flavor with a higher fat content and a light color.

Sockeye Salmon

This is a great, lower-fat option. It is a deep orange color and cooks quickly.

Quick Tips: Defrosting Salmon

Do you need to defrost the salmon before baking?

Yes, you’ll need to defrost the salmon before you cook it. If it’s still frozen, the salmon won’t cook evenly.

What’s the best way to defrost salmon?

The best way to defrost salmon is in the refrigerator overnight. It’s safe and effective! Make sure to put it in a bowl, so any juices from the raw salmon don’t contaminate other food as the salmon thaws. 

How long does it take to defrost a salmon?

If you thaw the salmon in the refrigerator, it will take between 12 to 24 hours, depending on the size of the salmon.

How can you quickly defrost salmon?

Forgot to put your salmon in the fridge? No worries. Simply take the salmon in its packaging (or in a plastic bag) and submerge it in a bowl of cold (but not ice-cold) water. Change the water every 30 minutes or so until the fish is thawed to keep the water cool. 

Do not thaw the fish on the counter at room temperature. You will end up with a weird texture and cause bacteria to grow.

Other Ingredients

Teriyaki sauce

My teriyaki sauce recipe is quick and easy, but you can also just get a bottle of sauce at the supermarket (this is my favorite store-bought teriyaki sauce). 

Broccoli florets

Buy a bag of broccoli florets to keep things easy. Or just get a head of broccoli and chop it up into small pieces. 

Extra virgin olive oil

Use extra virgin, extra light olive oil or avocado oil for this recipe. A little goes a long way! 

Garlic

How To Make Sheet Pan Teriyaki Salmon & Broccoli:

1

Arrange and toss.

Arrange the broccoli florets on a baking sheet and gently toss to coat with some of the teriyaki sauce and oil. Push the broccoli florets aside to make room for the salmon filets. 

2

Sauce it up.

Drizzle and coat the salmon with the remaining olive oil and teriyaki sauce. 

3

Bake.

Bake everything all at once until perfectly roasted. 

4

 Serve!

Serve over a bed of white or brown rice for a delicious, complete meal! Garnish with chopped green onion.

Instructions
