With each mouthful, the wonderful blend of flavors in the Teriyaki Salmon Sliders will entice your taste buds. Start by chopping the red cabbage, cucumber, and green onion thinly and placing them in a dish to make the coleslaw. Drizzle with a zesty combination of sesame oil, tamari or soy sauce, and orange juice, and then let cool in the refrigerator so the flavors can get the chance to combine. In the meantime, prepare a spicy mayonnaise by mixing Gochujang into reduced-fat olive oil mayonnaise to add a little heat.

Then, to give the center-cut salmon pieces a delicious sweetness, marinade them in teriyaki sauce for at least 20 minutes. For convenience, you may toast the small brioche hamburger buns in the oven or on the stovetop until they turn golden brown. Heat a pan over medium-high heat. After the buns are nice and toasty, remove from the pan and sear the marinated salmon skin-side down in the same skillet until it comes off easily and reaches the doneness you want.

Place a good amount of the coleslaw and a piece of skin-on salmon on the bottom bun of each slider, then assemble the sliders by spreading a dollop of hot mayo on top. The harmonic balance created by the contrasting flavors and textures of the crisp coleslaw, creamy mayo, and soft salmon will leave you wanting more. These delicious sliders can be enjoyed as a fulfilling dinner during the entire week, or if you have a get-together coming up soon, you can make these sliders and surprise your friends and family. These delectable Teriyaki Salmon Sliders, made with an array of Asian-inspired ingredients, are sure to become a family and friend favorite.

Step 4

Slice the buns in half.  Lightly spray with olive oil and if desired, lightly sprinkle with garlic powder.

Once the skillet is hot, add the buns face down in the skillet.  Toast for 3 – 5 minutes or until the edges have lightly browned.

Alternatively, set oven to 350F/177C.  Slice the buns open and spray with oil.  Then place them in a baking tray face up.  Place in the oven and toast for 3 – 5 minutes or until browned/toasted to your liking.

Step 5

Wipe the pan clean if needed, spray with oil then add the salmon skin-side up. As the salmon sears monitor the heat of the pan to ensure it is not too hot and burning.  Leave the salmon untouched in the skillet until it is easy to lift off the pan using a spatula or tongs, about 4 – 5 minutes.

Cook salmon for an additional on each side for 2 – 4 minutes, or until you reach your desired level of doneness (done, medium).

Step 6
