A delicate and decadent tasting salmon thats perfect for dinner and also served in smaller portions as an appetizer at your next dinner party.

This recipe is divine. The teriyaki covers the salmon in such a delicate and lovely way. And this is your easiest recipe to make. Serve with a jasmine rice, I suggest Rooster brand, and prepare according to package directions.

For gluten free, this recipe is ideal, as it is 100% gluten free, just double check the salmon to ensure they are gluten free. Remember to use Tamari soy.

For vegetarian, crispy tofu would work here very well. For tofu, pat dry with paper towel, cut into cubes and pan fry with vegetable oil over medium to high heat, to crisp, then pour sauce over top.
