Teriyaki glaze:

  • 2 tablespoons light soy sauce (or use a gluten-free alternative and add salt as needed)
  • 1/8 teaspoon konjac flour (or 1 teaspoon cornstarch)
  • 2 tablespoons dry white wine (or sake)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon minced ginger


  • 4 (6 oz) wild salmon fillets
  • Olive oil spray
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds toasted a few minutes in a warm skillet over medium heat


  • In a small saucepan, whisk together the soy sauce and konjac flour. Add the white wine, honey, minced garlic and minced ginger, whisking to combine.
  • Heat the glaze over medium heat, whisking often, 3-4 minutes, until it thickens into syrup. Remove from heat.
  • Heat broiler on high and position a rack 3-4 inches below flame (top rack). Line a large baking sheet with foil and spray it with olive oil spray.
  • Place the salmon pieces on the foil and lightly spray them with olive oil. Broil 5-6 minutes, or until opaque.
  • Remove the salmon fillets to a serving platter. Brush with the teriyaki glaze, sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve.
