Salmon Teriyaki : Recipe

Salmon glazed in a mixture of sake, rice wine, and soy sauce.


  • 1/2 cup sake
  • 1/4 cup Japanese rice wine
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, plus more if needed
  • boneless salmon fillets (about 1 inch thick)
  • Salt


  • Combine sake, wine, and soy sauce in a small bowl, give a good mix and then set teriyaki sauce aside.
  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high.
  • Season salmon lightly with salt. Cook, skin side down, until skin is brown and crisp, about 4 minutes. Turn and cook until other side is just beginning to brown, about 2 minutes.
  • Transfer to a plate when done.
  • Remove the fat from the skillet.
  • Bring teriyaki sauce to a boil in skillet over medium heat.
  • Cook until reduced by two-thirds, about 4 minutes.
  • Now add salmon, skin side up, and cook, spooning sauce over, until sauce is syrupy and salmon is just cooked through.
