Teriyaki Salmon Bites

These tasty teriyaki salmon appetizers are perfect for dinner parties, or you know, just for you!

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.
