Teriyaki Salmon Ingredients:
Homemade Teriyaki Sauce:
Using low-medium heat, whisk arrowroot flour and water in a medium saucepan until combined. Add remaining sauce ingredients, bring to a simmer and whisk occasionally until sauce thickens, about 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat. Use immediately or allow sauce to cool completely and store in fridge or freezer in an airtight container or mason jar.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Lay foil on medium-large pan (one piece horizontal, one vertical). Place salmon on foil-covered pan and dress with 3/4 cup of prepared teriyaki sauce.
Fold foil pieces into a tented but tightly sealed packet.
Place foil on oven rack and bake for 20-30 minutes (may take longer if salmon is particularly thick). Remove from oven, open packet and plate. Brush remaining teriyaki sauce on salmon, garnish with sesame seeds and serve!
