These tasty teriyaki salmon appetizers are perfect for dinner parties, or you know, just for you!
But you’re probably thinking, “teriyaki sauce isn’t exactly healthy, right?”
You’re right — many store-bought sauces are thickened with additives and most are loaded with processed sugar.
Our healthier teriyaki sauce is delicately sweetened and bursting with flavor thanks to reduced sodium soy sauce, fresh ginger, garlic, and a touch of raw honey.
