Teriyaki Salmon….oh it is really so GOOD!

Last week I made Teriyaki Chicken which we found it awesome to go with rice and a stir fried vegetable. I thought I would try the marinade with salmon this time. I love the texture of salmon but I don’t like the strong smell of it. So eating raw salmon is definitely out of the question. No raw salmon sushi for me.

I did the teriyaki sauce a little differently. I ground the ginger and garlic instead of chopping it until very fine. I used my most wonderful juicer to grind them. I pan-fried the salmon instead of baking it which I did for the teriyaki chicken. I also used some black soya sauce to mix with the light soya sauce. It turned out excellent. The fishy salmon smell was completely taken away by the lovely teriyaki sauce.The sauce looked dark but the taste & texture was awesome.

My family loved it extremely much. My daughter who doesn’t like fish said, ‘This is so GOOD!’ When my children got up in the morning, they asked whether there is anymore salmon to cook this teriyaki dish. Regretably there was none. I’m so happy and feel so proud of myself. Greatly happy that I have found a way to get my daughter to eat fish! My recipe and pictures to share here:

4 pieces salmon
1/2 C brown sugar (more if you like it sweeter)
1/4 C dark soya sauce
1/4 C light soya sauce
1 knob of ginger (grated)
4 pips of garlic (finely chopped)
1t sesame oil

Salmon pieces

Let the salmon sit in the marinade for about an hour. Remove the salmon pieces from the marinade and pan fry them. Fry on both sides until cooked through. Do not over fry as they will become tough. Remove and put them on a plate. Pour the marinade sauce into the pan. Keep stirring to let it boil for a little while. Pour the sauce over the salmon. Serve hot with rice. It goes best with just plain rice. Add salad or another dish of stir fried vegetables to make the meal complete.

I love salmon and this is a gorgeous way to serve it. Must try homemade Teriyaki sauce as I used to make fish this way but with bottled. Yum! Delicious!

hi, thansk very much for dropping by and leaving comments. I love fish and this is a really good and easy dish to make.

love it, too bad salmon is quite expensive in russia =(

Mary  on September 16th, 2009

Fadly, thanks for adding. Salmon is also expensive here in UK though not as expensive as certain other fish like monkfish or tuna. However pomfret is quite cheap here. I bought the frozen black pomfret recently to make sweet and sour fish, http://www.keeplearningkeepsmiling.com/2009/09/10/sweet-and-sour-fish/, and it was very good. Well, when we go back for holidays, we must remember to eat a lot of fresh fish…hehe

Finally, I’ve found you, Mary! ha ha…Great job! I think we’re the same. I don’t like raw salmon as well. The other thing is salmon is way too expensive over here, as you know! I’ve made some fish recipe last week(it’s a big catch by my husband) and will post it later on. Hope you’ll get more ideas for your fish recipes. Cheers.

Mary  on September 17th, 2009

Kristy, thanks for your comment. I just wonder whether we are missing out on something so good as regarded by many. Is there anyway to train our tastebuds? I think I still don’t like the smell & the texture. Would really love to see your fish recipe.

Mary  on March 18th, 2010

@Olive - Give a try. This is my family’s top favourite salmon dish. I cook it very often. Everyone’s happy when I cook this dish :D

This sounds really good and the pic looks yummy! I live in the US and it is salmon season. My dad just caught a lot of salmon the other day and he is amazing at filleting them so I got some fresh salmon filets in my fridge. I am excited to try your recipe, thanks!
