Sweet Salmon Teriyaki

On Friday I was looking on the internet to try and figure out what to have for dinner.  I came across several recipes for for salmon and really haven’t tried it yet (I am trying out different types of fish) except for a tiny taste when out to dinner with my family.  Taking a trip to our local natural/organic supermarket Wild By Nature to get everything needed for dinner.  They had organic salmon so we jumped on the opportunity to get it.  It wasn’t an inexpensive meal but it was for sure a delicious one!
