Our version of teriyaki sauce is neither too sweet nor too salty, but we think....just right! In fact, this sauce is so good, it can be used for teriyaki chicken, teriyaki beef, on burgers and more!
3 tbsp mirin
3 tbsp sake
3 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp sugar
1 stub ginger, sliced
1 salmon fillet
To make the teriyaki sauce, combine mirin, sake, soy sauce, sugar and ginger and bring to a boil. Once it comes to a boil, lower heat and simmer until sauce is thickened. Set aside.
Season salmon with salt and let it sit for 10 minutes. Line baking pan with parchment paper and put salmon fillet on top. Bake for 5 minutes at 400 degrees F. Brush sauce on salmon and bake for another 5 minutes. Repeat basting with teriyaki sauce for 15-20 minutes.
