Salmon Teriyaki

So last night we were planning to have dinner outside but both Kenichi and Kenshin were sleeping so I decided to make salmon teriyaki. It was really easy.


– 3 medium size salmon

– 2 tbsp soy sauce (to marinate)

For sauce

– 2 tbsp soy sauce

– 1 1/2 tbsp mirin


– Marinate the salmon with soy sauce. Leave it aside for 10-15 minutes.

– On a small bowl, mix soy sauce and mirin, and stir it (for sauce).

– Heat the oil (don’t use too much oil otherwise it’s going to be oily). Fry the salmon until it’s medium rare, then move it into a large plate. Use low heat when frying salmon.

– With the same pan, turn it to high heat, pour the sauce, bring to boil, and let it simmer for about 1 minutes.

– Put the salmon back into the pan, try to pour the sauce all over the salmon. Let it simmer for awhile or until the salmon is cooked.

– Move it into serving dish.


You can put grated daikon (white radish) along with your salmon teriyaki. Kenichi likes grated daikon with soy sauce so I made it for him last night. I, personally, don’t like it. It is bitter and a bit spicy.

I didn’t take picture cos we were too hungry last night. Will take pictures when I cook it again next time.
