Servings: 4 servings
- ⅓ cup mirin
- ⅓ cup soy sauce
- ⅓ cup sake
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 thumb-size ginger peeled and finely grated
- 2 cloves garlic peeled and finely minced
- 4 salmon filets (4 oz. each)
- 1 tablespoon oil
- sesame seeds toasted
In a bowl, combine mirin, soy sauce, sake, brown sugar, ginger and garlic. Stir together until well-blended and sugar is dissolved. Add salmon fillets and marinate for about 30 minutes. Drain salmon well and pat dry. Reserve marinade and set aside.
In a wide pan over medium high heat,. heat oil, swirling to cover bottom of pan. Add salmon in a single layer and cook for about 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until nicely seared on the outside but still slightly undone in the inside.
Add the reserved marinade and simmer for about 2 to 3 minutes, spooning sauce over fish, or until thickened and salmon easily flakes with a fork. Remove from pan and transfer onto serving plate. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve hot.
