Salmon Honey Teriyaki


1 lb fresh salmon fillet

3 tbsp soy sauce

3 tbsp mirin (Japanese sweet rice wine)

3 tbsp sake

2 tbsp honey

2 tsp cooking oil


Combine the soy sauce, mirin, honey, and sake in a resealable plastic bag. Add the salmon and mix well to coat. Place in the fridge to let marinate for 1 hour or up to 8 hours.

After salmon has marinated, remove from fridge and bag, reserving the marinade. Heat the cooking oil in a large skillet or frying pan over medium heat. When hot, add the salmon and sear for about 2 minutes per side. Turn the heat to low and add the remaining marinade. Cover and cook for 4-5 minutes, until cooked through.
