Home Cooked Teriyaki Salmon

Home cooked teriyaki salmon with simple tasty sautéed asparagus and mushroom. Two weeks ago, I bought 1 salmon fish head plus 1 salmon fish piece from Tesco and wanted to try fried salmon fish head as well as teriyaki salmon. My first dish was a failure which is the fried salmon fish head. The fried fish head was not as per what I expected so to compensate my failure, I will ensure I do not fail my teriyaki salmon.

And the good news, my teriyaki salmon dish did not fail me and turns out to be quite good instead. Initially, I wanted to have a sole teriyaki salmon dish only but later decided to add on some colors to the dish thus added 2 sides dishes which is quick fry asparagus and enoki mushrooms.

Btw, this is home cooked.
