This recipe serves:

2

Units of Measurement:
Teriyaki Marinade & Sauce
1 Cup soy sauce
Zest of 2 oranges

Scallions, both white and green parts, chopped, for garnish
Toasted sesame seeds, for garnish

Steps

  • 1

    Make the teriyaki marinade & sauce. In a saucepan over medium heat, add the soy sauce, orange zest and juice, sugar, garlic, and ginger. 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.

  • 2

    In a medium bowl, add cooled teriyaki marinade, sesame seeds, and salmon. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour to marinate.

  • 3

    Remove the salmon from marinade and set aside. In a saucepan over medium heat, transfer the marinade and bring the marinade to a boil.

  • 4

    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.
