Crispy Teriyaki Salmon Bites are a 15 minute salmon dinner that everyone will love! Serve over rice with a veg on the side for an easy, restaurant worthy meal!



  • 2 pounds salmon, cut into cubes, skin removed (try and get thicker filets so that you can cut nice, larger size pieces. Refer to the pictures in the post for reference on the size.)
  • 1 tablespoon peanut oil (can also use avocado oil or canola oil)

For The Marinade:

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons teriyaki baste & glaze
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon garlic paste or finely minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon ginger paste or finely minced ginger
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon chili garlic sauce or sriracha


  1. Cut the salmon into 1 1/2 to 2 inch cubes. Add the salmon to a large bowl or resealable bag.
  2. Add the ingredients for the marinade into a bowl, whisk together to combine and then pour over the salmon cubes. Toss to combine and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  3. Remove the salmon from the marinade and set the cubes onto paper towels to dry slightly.
  4. Pour the remaining marinade into a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes, then remove from the heat.
  5. Add oil to a large skillet over high heat and then add the salmon cubes in a single layer, leaving room around each piece of fish so that the cubes sear properly. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side (depending on how large your salmon cubes are) and then remove to a plate and cover with foil.
  6. Repeat with the remaining salmon cubes, if needed.
  7. Add all the cooked salmon (along with any juices from the plate) back to the skillet along with the boiled marinade. Toss gently to coat the salmon and then remove from the heat.
