I love cooking a stunning meal that involves lots of hours, but on most days I want something convenient, easy to to cook, quick, and still delicious. That is why my teriyaki glazed salmon is the perfect weeknight dinner, with a simple tricolore salad (just a fancy name for three different types of lettuce). So tasty, and the teriyaki glaze gives it that little sweet and savory flavor, and you can cook it on the stove top in under 15 minutes! A family favorite and I truly love this tricolore salad, because the lettuce is really flavorful and the shaved parmesan goes perfectly on top! I literally eat this teriyaki salmon about twice or so a week, and it is just my go to! It is moist, not dry, and so easy to make for an every night dinner. So, without further a due, let’s get to this delicious teriyaki glazed salmon with a tricolore salad!

Teriyaki Glazed Salmon & Easy Tricolore Salad
This sweet and savory skillet teriyaki salmon is the perfect dinner for weeknights when you want no fuss. Can be cooked in 15 minutes, and an easy, colorful salad on the side goes perfectly with the salmon!
- Prep Time: 10
- Cook Time: 15
- Total Time: 25
For the salmon:
- 1 fillet of salmon
- 1/2 cup of teriyaki sauce, plus more during cooking
For the tricolore salad:
- 1/2 head Treviso radicchio
- 2 endives
- tuscan kale
- shaved parmesan
- olive oil
- juice of half a lemon
For the salmon:
- If you have time, in the morning, place the salmon in a plastic bag and pour in the teriyaki sauce. Place in the fridge till dinner time. If you don’t have time, no worries you can pour the sauce in the pan when cooking. (refer to notes)
- In a cast iron skillet or nonstick pan, place pan on medium high heat on stove. Add a tablespoon of olive oil to the pan
- Take the marinated salmon and place it skin side down.
- Let it sear for two minutes then flip it to the other side and add more teriyaki sauce to the salmon, about 2 tbsp.
- Cook the salmon for another 8 minutes flipping again half way through. Depending in thickness you might need to add or subtract a minute. You want the salmon to be fully cooked, but not to the point where it looks dry.
- Turn off the heat and remove the salmon from the pan. Plate and enjoy!
For the Salad:
- Chop each lettuce and rinse and dry.
- In a large bowl, mix all the lettuce together and then lightly drizzle olive oil over the lettuce, add in 1/2 juice of the lemon.
- Generously add in the shaved parmesan and sprinkle with pepper. Mix together and serve with salmon.
If you want to make this recipe a bit more hearty, mashed potatoes would go great with the salmon! If you don’t have time to marinate the salmon, no worries. When you sear the salmon, pour the 1/2 cup of teriyaki sauce in and the salmon and then you do not need to add in any extra.
See, pretty simple! That is why the teriyaki salmon with the tricolore salad is a perfect weeknight dinner! Another great weeknight dinner is my Chili, it is actually super easy to make surprisingly! If you want something a bit more fancy for the weekend, then I recommend my take on Ayesha Curry’s Shrimp and Grits recipe!
