From My Kitchen: Salmon Teriyaki

Lord knows, I love me some salmon. My biggest issue is that it is hard to find new recipes for it. I don’t want to get tired of it. Then one of my coworkers had Salmon Teriyaki for lunch, and a lightbulb went off. I have a Teriyaki recipe in my folder since forever, so I just paired it with salmon, and I never looked back. It will be a mainstay in my collection of recipes, and once you tried it, I bet you will hang on to the recipe as well. Did I mention how easy this recipe is?

What you’ll need:

Start by making the teriyaki sauce by combining the sake, Mirin, soy sauce and brown sugar. Set aside. Heat one tbsp of canola oil in a frying pan. Once the pan is hot, lower the heat to medium and add the salmon filets skin side down.

Cook the salmon for 4 minutes, then turn them over and cook them for another 2 minutes.

Remove the salmon from the skillet. Add the Teriyaki sauce to the skillet and heat it. Return the salmon to the skillet and cook it in the sauce for another 2 minutes. Serve in a bowl or with rice.

Bon Appétit!

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
