A Fishy Affair

Some of you might have noticed that I have yet to post any fish recipes. Reason being I'm quite a picky person when fish is of concern. It got to be white fish, fresh and reasonably priced. I never really like red fish as I find it too fishy for my liking. Some of my friends even teased me of being "what's the point of eating fish if it's not fishy?"
But my affair with salmon has changed my mindset about this red fish particular for it's high Omega3 benefits and the tenderness of it's meat. And to top that, the Japanese way of preparing this fish in all it's freshness, be it in sashimi, sushi and salmon teriyaki had me hooked. And this teriyaki recipes is for keep, easy to prepare and you can wow your friend with a simple yet elegant Japanese fish dish. I definitely say Oishi-ne.

Salmon Teriyaki
Ingredients (serves 4)
  • 4 salmon fillets (can be skinless or with skin)
  • 100ml sake
  • 100ml mirin
  • 2 tbsp miso paste
  • 100ml Kikkoman light soya sauce
  • 100gm caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp cooking oil
  • some pickled ginger/spring onion/Japanese chilli flakes for garnishing
  1. In a plastic container, add sake, mirin, miso, soya sauce, caster sugar and stir till dissolved
  2. Place the salmon fillet into (1) and let it marinate for at least 6 hours. I left it overnight in the fridge.
  3. In a grill pan, brush with oil, heat. Once heated, place the marinated salmon fillet and brown for 2 minutes each side. Dish out and transfer to baking tray, brush with remaining marinating juice.
  4. In a pre-heated oven at 180C, grill the fish for about 6-8minutes till just cook.
  5. Dish out into a plate and garnish with pickled ginger/spring onion/chilli flakes. Serve with Japanese rice.
Learn the skill of fishy affair and stood up to impress.
