  • cup mirin
  • cup soy sauce
  • 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.
