Teriyaki Salmon

Teriyaki Salmon it’s so simple, healthy and it is a great recipe for entertaining. Teriyaki is a Japanese way of cooking where the food is broiled, baked or grilled in a sweet soy sauce mixture. Many foods can be cooked in teriyaki style such as salmon, tuna, chicken, beef, tofu etc. It’s simple to make your own teriyaki sauce and only requires few ingredients: soy sauce, onion, brown sugar, mirin, ginger, garlic, sesame oil. Mirin is a sweet rice wine that is similar to sake and contains alcohol. You can make a lot of teriyaki sauce and store it in the fridge until needed. I recommend serving the Teriyaki salmon with rice or noodles and cucumber-coriander salad or pickle ginger, wasabi and mooli salad (white radish salad). If you have any leftover, this tasty sauce can also be used tossed through a crunchy cucumber salad or like I do, use it in julienne vegetables salad. You can cook the rice ahead of time and keep it in the fridge until need, no more than one day.

4-200gr salmon filets
4 cups of cooked rice
For Teriyaki sauce:
100 ml soy sauce
100 ml mirin
50 ml sesame oil,
2 chopped onions,
50gr grated ginger,
50gr chopped garlic,
3 tablespoon brown sugar
For julienne vegetables salad:
1-red pepper
60gr white radish (mooli)
60gr zucchini
60gr carrots
60gr pickled ginger
2tbs mirin
2tbs sesame oil
2tbs lime juice
2tbs soy sauce
To make the sauce fry onions in a saucepan, then add all ingredients for the sauce and boil slowly until a syrupy consistency is achieved, about a 50 percent reduction. Let cool completely. Add salmon and marinate for 1 hour. Cook salmon with marinate in the oven at 180c for 10 min or until cooked. Do not overcook.
For the salad cut vegetables into very thin sticks. In a bowl, combine all vegetables and set aside. I chose and I recommend to don’t cook the vegetables to get all the benefit from fresh vegetables.
To make the dressing, in small bowl, combine sesame oil, mirin, lime juice, and soya sauce; mix thoroughly. Pour over vegetables and toss to mix. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Serve the teriyaki salmon with rice, julienne vegetables on top and garnish with fresh coriander and pickled ginger. Enjoy. Pin It Now!
