This was inspired by this recipe: Asian Glazed Salmon.
It’s best to use fresh Salmon as opposed to the frozen counterpart.
- 1/4 cup Sake or a dry white wine or even some ponzu or lemon juice would work
- 1/4 cup Soy Sauce
- 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
- 1 Tablespoon Rice Vinegar
- 1/2 Tablespoon fresh grated Ginger
Prepare the glaze and marinade the salmon in it for ten minutes. Turn the fish once during the marinade process.
Here is what it looks like after it marinades:
- Combine glaze ingredients in a bowl and stir until brown sugar is completely dissolved.
- Rinse and pat dry salmon fillets. Place salmon fillets in glaze and marinate for a few minutes, and then flip over and marinate for a couple more minutes.
- Heat oil in a large saute-pan over high heat. Season salmon fillets with salt and pepper (remember glaze will have a bit of saltiness from soy sauce as well). Sear salmon in hot pan, turning once, until browned but barely cooked through, about 3 minutes each side.
- While salmon cooks, place glaze in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over high heat. Vigorously simmer for 5 minutes.
- Plate salmon and brush or pour glaze over salmon.
And what the glaze looks like:
