  • 1/4 cup Soy Sauce
  • 1/4 cup cooking Sake
  • 2 tablespoons Mirin (can leave this out if you wish, but it adds a nice flavour)
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Japanese rice wine vinegar (or apple cider vinegar as a substitute)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 4 x 170g | 6oz skinless atlantic salmon fillets
  • 1 tablespoon sesame , peanut or canola oil
  • 1 shallot/green onion stem , sliced to garnish
  • 2 cups broccoli florets , lightly steamed
  • 1 large zucchini/courgette ribbons (use a vegetable peeler to do this), lightly steamed


  • Combine Soy Sauce, Sake, Mirin, brown sugar, vinegar and garlic powder together in a bowl. Mix until sugar has dissolved. Pour half of the marinade into a small saucepan and set aside.
  • Rinse and pat dry salmon with a a paper towel. Place the salmon fillets into the bowl with the teriyaki glaze and allow to coat for 2 minutes each side.
  • Heat oil in a nonstick pan/skillet over medium-high heat. Fry two salmon fillets at a time, and any remaining glaze from the bowl. Fry for 3-4 minutes each side until cooked to your liking.
  • Bring the glaze in the saucepan to the boil over high heat. Lower heat and gently simmer while string occasionally, until glaze reduces and thickens. (Add a little extra warm water only if needed).
  • Serve salmon over steamed vegetables and pour teriyaki glaze over the top.
