For great tasting food ready in 20 minutes, you have to try my Teriyaki Salmon Noodles. Soft brown rice noodles are combined with crunchy stir fried veggies and oven baked salmon fillets in a tangy teriyaki sauce. Full of flavor, this teriyaki salmon bowl is a hit with the whole family.
I like to bake the teriyaki salmon fillets in the oven, rather than cook them on the stove top. I find the salmon remains moist when roasted and doesn't dry out, which is always the name of the game when cooking fish.
Ready and on the table in 20 minutes, this Easy Salmon Stir Fry is a hit any night of the week, but particularly on those busy weeknights.
My kids also can't get enough of teriyaki salmon and noodles. It's not only full of veggies but also provides a serving of that all important oily fish.

Teriyaki Salmon Ingredients
Find the full list and quantities in the recipe below.
Salmon - I use salmon fillets as they are a great boneless cut from the top loin of the salmon. You could also use salmon steaks, just take care as they have a bone running through the centre.
Brown Rice Noodles - I like the flavor of brown rice noodles, but you can use any variety of noodle. Or how about swapping the noodles for some steamed rice instead. You could even serve with my Coconut & Lime Rice.
Teriyaki Sauce - Use any variety or brand available in your local store. If following a gluten free diet, ensure the teriyaki sauce you are using is a gluten free variety.
Vegetables - I have used a combination of scallions, red peppers and sugar snap peas in this stir fry as they not only taste delicious and have great crunch, but they are quick to cook too. This is a versatile dish, so feel free to add or swap any other veggies that you and your family enjoy eating.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is teriyaki sauce?
Teriyaki is a traditional Japanese sauce made from soy sauce, mirin, sugar, and sake. It also often contains honey, garlic, and ginger to ramp up the flavor. Cornstarch can be added to teriyaki sauce as a thickener.
You can buy ready made Teriyaki sauce at the store but it is also really easy to make your own at home. Here is a link to a great homemade Teriyaki Sauce from RecipeTin Eats.
When making your own teriyaki sauce for anyone who is celiac or following a gluten free does, ensure you swap regular soy sauce for gluten free tamari soy.
What is the best store bought Teriyaki Sauce?
You can buy Teriyaki sauce in most good grocery stores. Trader Joes Soyaki Teriyaki sauce is particularly popular.
How do I know if my salmon is cooked?
To check your salmon is cooked, gently press down on the top of the fillet with a fork, or your finger. If the fish is cooked the flakes of fish should start to separate. This means the salmon is cooked and you can take it off the heat.
How long does salmon take to bake in the oven?
A regular sized salmon fillet should take around 8-12 minutes to bake in a hot 450ºF/225ºC oven. It will depend on the thickness of each fillet. I like to cook salmon quickly in a hot oven as this stops the fish from drying out.
Can you make salmon teriyaki on the stove?
Yes, absolutely. Pour some oil into a large skillet and place on the stove over a medium heat. Then place the salmon into the skillet, skin side up.
Cook for roughly 4 minutes, then turn the fish over and cook for a further 3 minutes on the second side. Give the fish a quick press with a fork to check it is cooked and remove from the heat, or if necessary give it 1-2 minutes longer in the pan.
Variations & Substitutions for Teriyaki Salmon Bowl
This recipe is versatile and easily adapted to suit your own tastes. Here are some suggestions to get you started:
Vegetables: asparagus spears, broccoli florets, mange tout, snow peas, baby corn, carrot, chili, beansprouts.
Noodles: use buckwheat soba noodles, ramen noodles, udon noodles or rice noodles. You can also swap the noodles for some steamed rice. Spaghetti noodles would also work in a pinch.
To make this a lower carb weeknight dinner you could also serve it over vegetable noodles.
Fresh herbs: sprinkle over some freshly chopped cilantro just before serving.
Tips & Tricks For Making Easy Salmon Stir Fry
- This dish is best eaten fresh, straight from the oven. However, to save time you can prepare all the ingredients earlier in the day and keep them in the fridge until you are ready to assemble.
- If you have extra time you can let the salmon marinade in the teriyaki sauce for up to half an hour before it goes into the oven. This will really intensify flavor infused into the salmon.
- Always try to use salmon fillets of a similar size and shape. This helps to ensure they will all cook at roughly the same time.
- If the noodles stick after you drain them, rinse them a little cold water and drain again.
How To Serve this Teriyaki Salmon Recipe
This easy salmon stir fry is a entire meal in one so I don't tend to cook anything else to go along side it.
If I were to serve anything it would be a side of simple stir fried greens like bok choy, or broccoli spears with a splash of soy sauce and sesame oil or a squeeze of fresh lemon. Or try my Easy Buttered Kale.
How To Reheat Teriyaki Salmon?
This is a dish best eaten freshly made as noodles tend to overcook when reheated and become sticky.
However, leftover salmon and veggies can be reheated gently. Store in an airtight container in the fridge. Place into a warm oven to heat through, adding a splash of water to stop them from drying out.
