I have been making this recipe for years. Martin is the one who enjoys salmon in our family. I figured I better get this recipe posted when he told me he checked our blog and he couldn’t find it. YIKES!! His new diet craze thought of the moment is Pescetarian. What’s that you ask? Yeah, I did too. A Pescetarian is someone who eats fish and no other meat. Whether you eat meat or just fish you will enjoy this recipe;
Salmon with Sesame-Soy Glaze
Ingredients for Glaze
1/4 cup of soy sauce
1 Tablespoon rice vinegar
2 Tablespoons mirin
1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger (Don’t have on hand? Use 1 teaspoon ginger spice.)
1 Tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted (I do this if I am in the mood or should I say – not often)
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 filet, salmon
- Mix the soy sauce, rice vinegar, mirin and cornstarch together in a small bowl.
- Heat the vegetable oil in a small saucepan over medium high heat until hot.
- Add the ginger and cook until fragrant but not browned (30 seconds).
- Give the soy mixture a quick stir and pour it into the saucepan. Bring to a light boil and reduce the heat to low; cook another minute or until the glaze is thick and clear.
- Remove the pan from the heat and transfer the mixture to a heatproof bowl.
- Stir in sesame oil (and the seeds if you toasted them.)
- If you decide to toast the sesame seeds; place them in a small skillet over medium heat and toast for 7-10 minutes, or until the become golden and fragrant.
Cook your salmon anyway you want; grill, pan fry, bake. Add the glaze, both sides at the last couple of minutes. Serve.
Simple and Delicious! Enjoy!!
