Here’s another recipe best eaten with rice. Yes it is bad for the diet, but it is definitely delicious! Garlic fried rice works well with this dish too.
Teriyaki according to Wikipedia means “broiled or grilled in sweet sauce”. It has a light and sweet flavor. This marinade can be used on chicken and pork as well. You can even get a bottled teriyaki marinade, but nothing beats the real thing. Adjust the sweetness according to your taste and add chili flakes if desired.
1/4 cup brown sugar or honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup mirin
4 skinless salmon fillets, halved lengthwise (about 250g each)
2 shallots, ends trimmed
ginger (4 cm), grated
Sesame oil, to grease
In a bowl combine the soy sauce, mirin, sugar/honey and ginger. Divide it into 2 parts. Marinate the salmon in this mixture and cover. Place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to one hour.
Slice the shallots and place them in an airtight container with ice cold water. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Heat the remaining marinade until it thickens.
Preheat the grill and grease it. Grill the marinated fish for 5-8 minutes or until it is cooked. Do not overcook, because it will break.
Transfer the salmon fillets on a platter and pour the heated sauce. Garnish with the drained shallots.
