This easy teriyaki salmon recipe is a delicious way to get more fish in your diet. The method guarantees perfectly-cooked, juicy salmon – simply serve with a salad or steamed rice.
2 Tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 cup mirin (rice wine)
1 knob ginger, grated
1 teaspoon lime juice
1/2 teaspoon wasabi powder or chili garlic sauce (optional)
2 x 200g salmon fillets
1. Heat the grill. Combine all the ingredients (except for the salmon) in a bowl.
2. Arrange the salmon skin-side down in a well-oiled grill pan and brush with the sauce. Cook 2 minutes and brush again.
3. Repeat until the salmon is just flaky, about 8 minutes total. You can flip the salmon so it’s skin-side up for the last 2 minutes to get a crispy skin (be careful it doesn’t burn under the grill).
4. Serve with salad or steamed rice.
