Teriyaki Stir Fry Recipe for Salmon/Chicken

February 25, 2022

What you’ll need for this teriyaki stir fry recipe: large skillet with lid, 1/4 cup water, small bowl, cutting board, knife, spatula, wooden spoon or cooking utensil, plate with foil/cover


  • 1 whole Chicken Breasts
  • 1 whole Salmon Filets
  • 1 cup Snow Peas
  • 2 large Carrots
  • 1/4 medium Onion
  • 1 1/2 - 2 cups Broccoli Florets
  • 1 clove Garlic
  • 1 small piece of Ginger
  • 2 tbsp Sesame oil
  • 1/2 cup Teriyaki Sauce


  1. Begin by preheating your skillet over medium/low. Stir the sauce container very well. Once the pan is preheated, add the sauce.
  2. Bring the sauce to a gentle simmer, turning up the heat slightly if needed.
  3. The sauce will start to become glossy and thicken nicely.
  4. Once thickened, about 5 minutes of cooking, transfer to a small dish.
  5. Keep the pan at a medium, add half of the sesame oil and add in your chicken/ salmon (cooking in batches if need be, depending on your pan size)
  6. Cover with the lid and cook 3-4 minutes.
  7. While your salmon/chicken is cooking, work on chopping up your veggies, slicing the onion and carrot very thin, breaking up the broccoli and mincing the garlic and ginger.
  8. Uncover the pan, spoon on some of the teriyaki sauce onto the chicken/salmon. Flip and do the other side. Cover again and cook another 3 minutes.
  9. Remove the lid– the salmon and chicken should be cooked through (chicken = 165 degrees F and salmon = 145 degrees F minimum) cook another minute or so on each side to get a nice sear.
  10. Transfer salmon/chicken to a plate , drizzle a bit more sauce over the top, cover tightly with foil and let rest while veggies cook.
  11. Wipe out pan if needed, then drizzle the rest of the sesame oil in the pan, over medium heat still.
  12. Add the garlic and ginger.
  13. And the rest of the veggies. Stir-ring well and sautéing 2 minutes or so.
  14. Grab 1/4 cup of water– turn up the heat on the veggies, add the water and put on lid quickly! (it should steam right away) cook 2 minutes with lid on
  15. remove lid, add the rest of the teriyaki sauce, cook another minute or so, stirring well. Remove from heat...
  16. Heat up rice (if using) plate up the chicken/salmon and veggies– and enjoy!
