Teriyaki Salmon

Total Time:
40 min

4 servings

  • 1 3/4 pounds boned salmon fillet, with skin, or steaks about 3/4 inch thick
  • Marinade:
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoons sake, or dry sherry
  • 1 tablespoon mirin
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger juice
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon mirin
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • Sansho powder
  • Green bell peppers, cut into strips, for garnish
  • Lemon slices, for garnish
  • If using a salmon fillet, cut crosswise into 4 equal pieces. Mix together marinade ingredients in a bowl or shallow dish, add the salmon, cover, refrigerate and marinate for 20 minutes.

  • Heat the oil in a frying pan. Remove the salmon from the marinade, shaking off excess liquid and reserving leftover marinade. Place skin side down in hot oil. Move fish around constantly to keep from sticking. When browned on one side, turn the salmon, reduce the heat and cook, covered, for 6 to 8 minutes. Remove the salmon from the pan, and drain on paper towels. Pour reserved marinade into pan, add the mirin and sugar, and bring to a boil. Add salmon again. Cook until marinade is almost cooked away. Remove salmon from pan, sprinkle with powdered sansho. Slice diagonally and garnish with green peppers Sauteed in the pan, and lemon slices.

This turned out better than what you can get at a classy restaurant. I had to substitute sansho powder with plain black pepper because not a single store in my town carries sansho powder, but it still was excellent. What is also really good about this recipe, is that it is very easy to make. 10 out of 5 stars. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This was easy to prepare but taste-wise, it was a disappointment. I thought the flavor was far from authentic; I almost felt like buying bottled teriyaki sauce instead! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband isn't a big fan of salmon but he really liked this recipe. I didn't have sansho powder and didn't seem to miss it, still flavorful. Very easy for a weeknight meal. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Recipe was excellent but I had to tweak the sauce by adding a little brown sugar to make it a little less salty. item not reviewed by moderator and published
