Grilled Salmon Teriyaki
For this recipe, you'll need 4 salmon fillets and the following for the sauce:
Simply heat all in a saucepan and stir the sugar until dissolved.
Continue stirring for 25 minutes over a low flame to let the flavours come together.
If you like, thicken with a bit of cornstarch and water.
Grill the fish on both sides for about 2 minutes, then begin basting each side with the sauce.
Continue basting and flipping over the fish until it is done.
Serve the fish and pour a bit more of the sauce over it, sprinkling with some toasted sesame seeds.
To complete the meal, add a side of rice and miso soup!
Miso shiru, or miso soup, is a fermented soy bean soup made from dissolving miso paste in a bonito fish flake and seaweed stock.
Simply simmer bonito fish flakes and a piece of kombu seaweed in water for a few minutes. Do not boil.
Strain the stock and using 2 1/2 cups of this broth, add 4 tbsp of miso and dissolve.
Add small cubes of firm tofu and finely sliced green onions right before serving.
