Teriyaki Salmon with Broccoli and Carrots

Easy salmon teriyaki using left-over ingredients.


Total time: 40 minutes

Serving: 2


200 g               Salmon

¼ cup               Teriyaki sauce (my last left-over sauce, if you don’t have it, don’t worry, you can make teriyaki sauce with the mixed sauce below)

2                      garlic, sliced

2                      garlic, chopped

2 cm                ginger, thin sliced

1                      broccoli

1                      carrots

½ cup               water

Mixed sauce for the Salmon/vegetables

2 tbsp              soy sauce

2 tbsp              mirin

2 tbsp              sugar

2 tbsp              sake



  • Marinate salmon (skin up), teriyaki sauce, chopped garlic, and chopped ginger for about 15 minutesDSC01924.JPG
  • Pre-heat a cooking pan on medium high with vegetable oil. Once it’s heated, place the salmon (without the marinate sauce, ginger and garlic). Cook each side for about 3-4 minutes until it’s cooked.DSC01926.JPG
  • Once all side of the salmon is cooked, turn the heat off. Pour the marinate sauce in, all the ginger and garlic. Set aside.DSC01932.JPG
  • Pre-heat a wok on medium high with vegetable oil. Once it’s heated, throw in chopped garlic. Stir until it’s fragrant and add in the carrots and broccoli, stir about 2-3 minutes. You can also do this at the same time as the salmon.DSC01927.JPGDSC01928.JPG
  • Pour in the mixed sauce and water. Cover the wok for about 3-4 minutes until vegetables are done. The texture is not too soft, as I like to keep the crunchiness. But if you prefer softer version, feel free to cook the vegies a little longer.DSC01929.JPGDSC01931.JPG
  • Ready to serve with or without steamed white rice.DSC01937.JPG

Hello there! If you are stopping by this page, you are probably searching for easy Asian home-cook meal inspirations that are uncomplicated, quick, budget-friendly, and still tasty and delishhh….. That’s what I am going to share in this blog. I am not a chef, I cook because I love it and I enjoy it. To give you a little background of who I am…. My name is Dewi, a self-made home-cook who enjoys filling her kitchen in with tasty and delicious of Asian food. I was born and grew up in Jakarta, Indonesia where I have never learned how to cook (except frying an egg or two, add soy sauce, and eat it with rice) and never thought I would have to cook ever in my life. Because my mom, who was (still is) the “family chef” had never encouraged the children to be involved in the kitchen. So, my passion for food and cooking came later on when I went abroad. In 2006, I moved to Beijing, China where I lived for a good 9 years. I occasionally cooked as I preferred to eat out or to order in, for a simple reason, it’s convenient and affordable (back then). My cooking journey became more apparent in 2015 when I decided to move to Germany. Eating out, especially for Asian food is expensive and not authentic. The selection of Asian restaurants is limited and because of the high price, it would mean that I would have to burn a hole in my pocket if I want to do it often. So now that I have a small family (my husband, my son, and I), I cook not only for myself but also for them. I like to try new things like occasional baking or non-Asian food. For that being said, I want to share my cooking journey with you and hope that you can find new food inspirations that you can do yourself at home, either for yourself or your family, it doesn’t have to be complicated. Happy cooking! =) Xoxo Dewi
