Soy Marinated and Cream Cheese-Stuffed Salmon

A simple soy sauce-based marinade will leave you with tender and tasty baked salmon! Stuff fillets or salmon steaks with a quick cream cheese mixture and top with a teriyaki glaze. Then sit back and enjoy the raves!


  • 1 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons whole grain Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes or to taste
  • 4 8 ounce salmon fillets or steaks
  • 3/4 cup cream cheese softened
  • 3 green onions finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon whole grain Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds


  • Stir together the soy sauce, honey, 2 tablespoons mustard, ginger, garlic, and red pepper flakes in a medium bowl.
  • Arrange the salmon fillets in a shallow dish.
  • Pour the marinade over the salmon, turning fillets to coat both sides.
  • Cover, and refrigerate for 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, make the salmon stuffing by combining the cream cheese, green onions, and 1/2 teaspoon mustard in a small bowl.
  • Refrigerate until ready to cook the salmon.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking dish with foil, and lightly grease foil.
  • Remove salmon from marinade.
  • Cut a slit in the thickest part of each fillet to make a small pocket.
  • Spoon cream cheese mixture into the pocket.
  • Place salmon in prepared baking dish.
  • Cook salmon in preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Remove from oven; spoon teriyaki sauce over fillets and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  • Reduce heat to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  • Cook until fish is easily flaked with a fork, about 5 minutes more.
