Chinese New Year Teriyaki Salmon with Garlic Noodles Recipe

teriyaki salmon

Hey guys!

It’s Chinese New Year this weekend! As Chinese is my favourite cuisine, I thought I’d share the recipe for one of my top 10 meals: Teriyaki Salmon. I rarely have Teriyaki Salmon so I was delighted when Very Lazy offered me some ingredients and a recipe that’s much better than the one I usually use.

Very Lazy have created a range of pre-chopped ingredients that are great for anyone who is pushed for time but doesn’t want to splurge on a takeaway. I received the Garlic Paste, Chilli Paste, Lemongrass Paste, Chopped Garlic, Chopped Ginger and Chopped Red Chillis. The recipe I’ve shared below uses the Chopped Garlic, Chopped Ginger and Lemongrass Paste.

Serves: 2

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 20 minutes



For teriyaki salmon:

  • 2 salmon fillets
  • 3 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Very Lazy Chopped Garlic
  • 1 teaspoon Very Lazy Chopped Ginger
  • 4-5 tablespoons dark soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon clear honey

For garlic noodles:

  • 150g dried egg noodles
  • 1 teaspoon Very Lazy Chopped Garlic
  • 1 teaspoon Very Lazy Lemongrass Paste
  • Sesame oil to taste
  • Sesame seeds (optional)


  1. Pre-heat oven to 220c.
  2. Combine garlic, ginger, teriyaki sauce, soy sauce and honey in a small saucepan, bring to the boil and reduce until thickened slightly.
  3. Coat the salmon with the cooled sauce from above and place in the oven for 10 minutes, basting with more sauce halfway through.
  4. Whilst the salmon is in the oven, cook the noodles according to the pack instructions, drain and set aside.
  5. Gently fry Very Lazy Chopped Garlic and Lemongrass Paste in a little oil before stirring in the cooked and drained noodles. Add a few drops of sesame oil.
  6. Serve salmon on top of the noodles and garnish with a few sprinkles of sesame seeds.
