Teriyaki salmon fillets (Japanese)

The Teriyaki sauce is one of the most popular products of the Japanese cuisine. It's especially good for marinating and glazing meats, and the combination with salmon seems to be a staple all around the globe. We decided to share this simple recipe with you, being sure you'll like it too. Serve this with the side of your choice :).

Ingredients (serves 2):

  • 2 salmon fillets (250 g)
  • 30-40 ml Teriyaki sauce (plus extra 10-15 ml for serving)
  • optional extra salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
Put the raw salmon in a deep dish and pour the sauce over it. Let it marinate for at least 1-2 hours (in the fridge if the room temperature is too warm):

When you're ready to make it, just heat the olive oil in a frying pan (or put it in a baking dish if you want to bake it, we went for the faster version) and add the salmon and all of the sauce in which it marinated:

Fry it on medium heat on both sides until it's done (4-5 minutes on each). The sauce will be reduced to a wonderful glaze coating the fish. Pour a little extra sauce from the bottle directly on top of the salmon on the serving plate. We recommend skipping any extra spice to fully enjoy this wonderful Asian creation. Dig in! :)
