Teriyaki Salmon & Mexican Meatloaf Muffins

Cooking is one of my favorite activities and I have loved making it a priority over the last few weeks!  Trying new recipes, making my own recipes, and getting to share them with you!

Here are a couple recipes I wanted to share with you from this week!  Hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

Teriyaki Salmon



-1/2 cup reduced sodium soy sauce

-2 Tbsp water

-1 Tbsp minced garlic

-1 Tbsp honey

-1 lb salmon, cut into 1 inch cubes


Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Combine soy sauce, water, garlic, and honey together in a bowl.

Place salmon cubes into mixture and make sure they are coated.

Pour salmon and mixture into a baking dish.

Bake for 25 minutes.

–Salmon great for use on salads, over rice, and on its own! I added mine on top of a mason jar salad and the juice from the teriyaki sauce was a great dressing!–
