Teriyaki sauce is a favorite when it comes to flavoring salmon. It's sweet and tangy and perfectly complements the fish. For some, though, the amount of sugar in your average teriyaki sauce is cause for concern. This Low-Carb Teriyaki Salmon is very low in sugar because it is naturally sweetened with honey. It uses a glaze rather than a sauce, so marinating isn't necessary. This meal is quick, simple, and healthy. Perfect for a weeknight dinner! If you like the glaze, be sure to try it on some of your other favorite meats.


You've probably heard that you should eat fish at least once, if not twice, a week. One serving of fish is chock full of heart-healthy nutrients and omega-3 fatty acids, and studies have shown that people who eat fish regularly decrease their chance of cardiovascular disease. However, we understand that changing dietary habits can be difficult. Here are a few tips to help you start eating more fish. 

  1. Find a fish you like. If you enjoy eating what you cook, then you're more likely to make it again. You may need to shop around for your favorite fish. 

  2. Try different methods. To keep the health benefits intact, avoid eating battered or fried fish. Instead, you can season your fish with lemon, herbs, spices, or even teriyaki.

  3. Fresh or frozen? Either will work, but make sure you look for the fish with the lowest amount of saturated fat, sodium, and added sugars.

Tried this recipe? What did you think?

This looks delicious! I make a similar recipe using five tablespoons of maple syrup, in place of the honey. I like to serve this with lemon slices on the side and a green salad or a spicy quinoa salad.
