Sesame Teriyaki Salmon and Green Beans

Happy Sunday! I literally stayed in my pajamas today and made my husband go to the grocery store 😉 All teachers and students have to be back tomorrow, so I decided to be lazy for most of the day. But I peeled myself off of the couch to make this yummy dinner.

The piece of salmon looks smaller than it was. Remember that salmon is super rich and fatty, so you don’t need an entire piece. I also used the marinade on the green beans and blistered them in a cast iron pan in olive oil until tender.

Sesame Teriyaki Marinade

Equal parts of Sesame oil, Teriyaki Sauce, and Soy Sauce. Add half the amount of garlic paste.

I used 2 tablespoons of the liquids and 1 tablespoon of the garlic paste for 1 large salmon filet and a half of a large package of fresh green beans.

Sesame oil and garlic paste are potent, but this marinade is both for the fish and green beans. I added pepper, but NO salt.


I marinated both in the marinade for about 15 minutes. Then I cooked the Salmon skin side down for 8 minutes then on the other side for 4 minutes. I took it off the stove to rest.

We don’t eat fish skin, but I cook with it to hold in the flavor. It’s not burnt. It’s perfect inside ❤️

I cooked the green beans the same amount of time as the salmon with constant turning.

I also made a yummy Almond Rice Pilaf (Near East brand). I l might have added 2 more tablespoons of butter than suggested 😉
