IS TERIYAKI SAUCE GLUTEN-FREE
Teriyaki sauce contains soy sauce which contains gluten from wheat and soybeans. Unless you buy gluten-free soy sauce to make your homemade teriyaki sauce it won’t be gluten-free. Look for gluten-free teriyaki sauce like this one.
HOW TO THICKEN TERIYAKI SAUCE
To thicken your teriyaki sauce there are a few options. Try adding a bit more flour or use thickeners like cornstarch, arrowroot powder, Tapioca Flour, or rice flour. Use in moderation. You may only need about 1 teaspoon of thickener. Dissolve in a small amount of water before adding into the sauce.
HOW TO COOK TERIYAKI SALMON
There are different ways to cook teriyaki salmon. You can either use the stovetop or the oven.
Stovetop: Pan sear salmon over medium heat. About 3 minutes on each side. Then add the teriyaki sauce and allow to cook for a few more minutes until the sauce thickens. Then serve.
Oven: Bake, grill or roast the salmon in the oven over a greased sheet pan or dish. We prefer baking since it allows the salmon to cook through without the risk of overcooking or burning. You may hold off on adding the sauce until the salmon is half baked or just add it in along with the salmon like we did to this easy Baked Teriyaki Salmon recipe.
