Bring to a boil then reduce the heat to low and slowly simmer until a syrupy consistency is achieved, and the volume is reduced by half, 20 minutes. Let cool completely.

Zest of 2 oranges
Juice of 2 oranges
6 Tablespoon brown sugar
4 Clove garlic
1 Tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
In a medium bowl, add cooled teriyaki marinade, sesame seeds, and salmon. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour to marinate.
4 (6 oz) salmon fillets, skin-on
1 Tablespoon white sesame seeds
Remove the salmon from marinade and set aside. In a saucepan over medium heat, transfer the marinade and bring the marinade to a boil.
When ready to cook, set the Traeger temperature to 450°F and preheat with the lid closed for 15 minutes.

Insert the probe horizontally into the center of the salmon filet. Place the salmon fillets directly on the grill grates, skin-side up, and close the lid. Cook the salmon, occasionally brushing the salmon with the teriyaki sauce, for 3-5 minutes per side, until the internal temperature reaches 125°F, or until done to your personal preference.

Remove the salmon from the grill and garnish with chopped scallions and toasted sesame seeds. Enjoy!
