Teriyaki Salmon with Asian Slaw



  • 3 tablespoons reduced-sodium teriyaki sauce, divided
  • 2 salmon fillets with skin (about 4 to 5 ounces each and 1 inch thick)
  • 2 1/2 cups coleslaw mix
  • 1 cup snow peas, cut into thin strips
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced radishes
  • 2 tablespoons orange marmalade
  • 1 teaspoon dark sesame oil


Preheat broiler or prepare grill for direct cooking. Spoon 1 1/2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce over fleshy sides of salmon. Let stand while preparing vegetable mixture.

Combine coleslaw mix, snow peas, and radishes in large bowl. Combine remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce, marmalade, and sesame oil in small bowl. Add to coleslaw mixture; toss well.

Broil salmon 4 to 5 inches from heat source, or grill, flesh side down, over medium coals, without turning, 6 to 10 minutes or until center is opaque and fish just begins to flake when tested with a fork.

Transfer coleslaw mixture to serving plates; serve with salmon.

Yield: 2 servings.
