Teriyaki Salmon

This salmon is always a hit!

Back in the year 2000, my parents took us on our last family vacation, right after my older brother graduated from college. While in Kauai we picked up an amazing recipe for teriyaki salmon from Roy’s restaurant. It’s been more than 10 years since that trip but the recipe just never gets old. I’ve modified the recipe to use agave nectar instead of refined white sugar, and honestly think it tastes better than the original.

You could easily cook this on the grill if you prefer.

    We make this all the time and people always lick their chops. We do it on the grill and sub agave nectar. DELICIOUS!!!!! I tried to click 5 stars but it didn’t let me.
