Frequently Asked Questions

How long should I marinate the salmon for the best flavour?

Marinating the salmon for 30 minutes to 1 hour in the teriyaki sauce will infuse it with a rich and delicious flavor. However, if you're short on time, even a shorter marination will still result in great taste.
