Serves: 4 servings
Asian-Style Salmon
  • ½ cup mirin (Japanese sweet rice wine)
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce or wheat free tamari (for gluten-free)
  • ¼ cup unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated fresh ginger or ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets
Sweet Teriyaki Sauce
  • ¼ cup soy sauce or wheat free tamari
  • ½ cup honey (use a mild one, like clover)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (about 1 lime)
Spicy Wasabi Sauce
  • 4 teaspoons wasabi powder
  • 2 tablespoons water
Asian-Style Salmon
  1. In a baking dish, whisk together the mirin, soy sauce, vinegar, and ginger. Add the salmon, skin sides up. Cover and let the fish marinate at room temperature for 1 hour.
  2. When ready to cook, preheat your broiler and grease the rack of a broiler pan.
  3. Place the salmon, skin sides down, on your prepared broiler pan rack. Place the pan 5 to 7 inches from the heating element and broil the salmon until it is just cooked through, about 6 minutes.
Teriyaki Sauce
  1. Put the soy sauce, honey, and lime juice in a small saucepan. Place the pan over medium heat, and bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, while whisking, until it thickens a little, about 4 minutes.
Wasabi Sauce
  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the wasabi powder and water until smooth.
  2. Plate the salmon and drizzle it with the teriyaki and wasabi sauces.
