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
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.
