This easy asian style salmon uses only teriyaki sauce to marinade. The sweet, dark flavour of teriyaki sauce works perfectly well with salmon. The marinade lightly glazed the fish, infusing it with a flavour that is a little sweet and deeply flavourful. Also the technique of first pan-searing the fish and then oven-roasting it make the salmon fillet perfectly seared on the outside but still juicy, pink and soft inside. Definitely a technique that produces restaurant quality salmon every time!

- Brush the fillet with a little fresh teriyaki marinade.
- Preheat oven to 200 degree C.
