Teryaki Salmon & Stir Fried Greens

Teryaki salmon & kale

I never used to really like salmon until I tried it Teryaki style. It’s a fish that can so often taste too oily and flabby, leaving quite an unpleasant aftertaste. What got me back into it was cooking it in this marinade that I don’t even measure. Yes, I do have a specific recipe for […]
