How to Make Mango Teriyaki Salmon
I love how easy it is to make this delicious mango teriyaki salmon! It comes together in no time! Here’s I put this dish together:
- Marinade the salmon: I use a homemade maple teriyaki sauce and pour it over the salmon arranged in a large casserole. This fish needs to marinate from 15 to 45 minutes in the refrigerator.
- Meanwhile, I prepare the mango salsa but wait to dress it. I only season and dress the salsa when I’m ready to serve the dish.
- Next, it’s time to cook the salmon. I heat a large frying pan with avocado oil over medium-high heat and fry the fish skin side down first, then rotate it every couple of minutes until it’s nicely seared all over.
- Don’t throw away the sauce! I cook the teriyaki marinade in a small saucepot for about 10 to 15 minutes over low heat, until it’s nicely reduced.
- Serve the salmon with spoonful’s of teriyaki sauce and a plenty of mango salsa on the top!
What Type of Salmon Should I Use?
This mango teriyaki salmon recipe will work great with any type of salmon. My favorite type of salmon to use is wild Alaskan King salmon. Since this type of fish is only season for a short period of time, I typically use regular, wild-caught salmon. Atlantic salmon will also work for this recipe.
Homemade Maple Teriyaki Sauce
You’ll love the easy and delicious teriyaki sauce I use with the salmon! It’s made with soy sauce, maple syrup, water, sesame seed oil, rice vinegar, ginger and garlic. I just place all the ingredients into a measuring cup, give it a whisk and that’s it!
- Once the salmon is done marinating, do not throw away the sauce!! Just pour into a small saucepot and cook over low heat for 10 to 15 minutes, until it’s nicely reduced. If you want to thicken the sauce further, combine 1 teaspoon corn starch with 1 tablespoon of water in a small ramekin and stir into the sauce.
Easy Mango Salsa Recipe
What really makes this dish so special is the mango avocado salsa! It pairs so well with the savory teriyaki salmon, creating a beautiful symphony of flavors! I recommend using extra ripe and sweet mangos for the recipe. You can also make this salsa with sweet peaches! Just dice the mangos, avocado, tomatoes, onion and combine with cilantro, lime juice, olive oil and salt. I recommend waiting to dress the salsa until you’re ready to serve. This way, it stays extra fresh!
Serving the Salmon
For serving this mango teriyaki salmon, first let the fried salmon rest for a few minutes. Place the salmon onto a tray, then add a few spoonful’s of the teriyaki sauce over the top. Grab a spoon and add loads of mango salsa over the top next and enjoy! If you want to add some carbs to this recipe, try serving the salmon with a side of steamed white rice.

Easy Mango Teriyaki Salmon
- 2 pounds wild salmon, portioned
For Maple Teriyaki Sauce:
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 tbsp sesame seed oil
- 1 tbsp rice vinegar
- 1 tbsp ginger puree
- 5 to 6 garlic cloves, pressed or very finely minced
For Mango Salsa:
- 2 medium ripe mangos
- 1 large avocado
- 2 medium tomatoes
- 1 small red onion, or large shallot
- small bunch fresh cilantro, chopped
- juice from 2 limes
- salt , to taste
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- Prepare the maple teriyaki sauce first. Combine the soy sauce, maple syrup, water, ginger, garlic, sesame seed oil and rice vinegar in a large measuring cup and whisk the ingredients together.
- If needed, portion the salmon into serving size fillets. Place the salmon into a large, deep casserole dish and pour the prepared teriyaki sauce over the top. Place the salmon into the refrigerator and marinate for 15 to 45 minutes.
- Meanwhile, prepare the mango salsa. Peel and dice the mangos into pea-sized pieces. Also do this for the avocado. For the tomatoes, seed them first, then dice. Dice the onion and chop the cilantro. Place all the ingredients into a large mixing bowl but do not dress yet!
- Remove the salmon from the fridge and carefully remove the salmon from the marinade onto a tray lined with paper towels. Pat the salmon lightly to dry it. Pour the remaining teriyaki sauce into a small saucepot. Bring it to simmer, then cook over low heat for about 10 minutes ,until the sauce is reduced.
- Preheat a large frying pan over medium-high heat and add a few tablespoons of avocado oil. Once the oil is extra hot, add the salmon skin-side down first. Fry the salmon for a few minutes per side over medium-high heat, or until the salmon is nicely browned all over. Thinner cuts of salmon will cook faster. Remove the fried salmon onto a wire rack to rest.
- Once the salmon is done, finish the salsa. Squeeze the lime juice over the top, season with salt and add the olive oil. Use a large spoon to toss everything together.
- For serving, place the salmon onto a plate, then spoon the teriyaki sauce over the top. Add spoonful’s of mango salsa over the top and enjoy. If desired, serve with a side of steamed white rice.
