Asian Teriyaki Salmon Recipe


This weekend I decided to try something different with dinner.  With ingredients I already had in the fridge I created a simple marinade that gave amazing flavor to a simple piece of salmon.  Putting everything together took almost no time and it tasted amazing!
.................................................................................

Here's what you need:
***Soy Sauce (in my case Gluten Free soy sauce).
***Agave Nectar (for sweetness)
***Mirin (Japanese sweetened sake)
***Salmon steak
...................................................................................

  • Season the salmon with salt and pepper.
  • Mix the liquid ingredients together to taste and add on to the raw salmon steak.
  • Marinade the salmon in "teriyaka" sauce for a minimum of 1 hour.
  • Sear salmon on a skillet until cooked through, add remainder of sauce mix on top of the salmon while cooking.  If desired, you can add sauce after the fish is plated.  
I paired the salmon with a traditional Haitian dish called djon djon rice and some fried plantains.  Next time I'll keep with the Asian theme and make some stir fried bok choy as a side.  What I like about this marinade is that it makes the perfect base to build on. I can add chili oil to make it a bit more spicy. I can also experiment with ginger, cilantro or any other flavors I fancy.

  1. You've inspired me to go gluten free and i'm already reaping the benefits of it. I wish it'll spread to my scalp though. I'm going to bookmark this recipe and try it once i find some agave nectar

  2. It looks so simple to do! And I knew I recognized my favorite haitian rice! Were you born in Haiti or you learned to cook here?

  3. @Loica12- I was born in Haiti but I didn't learn how to make djon djon rice until last year. Now I make it all the time!
