We place the sesame seeds in one layer on a parchment-lined cookie sheet and put in the preheated oven. We bake for just a couple of minutes. We want the seeds fragrant but not burned!
We heat our nonstick pan with the canola oil over medium heat. We remove the salmon from the bag, pat dry with paper towels, and, when the pan is hot enough, we add the salmon and cook for about 2 minutes on the first side. We flip over with tongs and cook for another 2 minutes. We place the pan into the oven and cook for a few more minutes. We want the salmon just cooked through.
Meanwhile, we pour the marinade into a pot and boil for a few minutes to be served on top of the salmon.
When the salmon is cooked, we remove the pieces to a plate, pour the teriyaki sauce on top, and sprinkle with the sesame seeds.
