Recipe


Makes 4 portions


Ingredients

- 4 salmon fillets

- 2 full tablespoons soft light brown sugar

- 80ml soy sauce

- 50ml water

- 50ml orange juice

- 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil

- 2 teaspoons grated ginger

- 2 cloves garlic, minced

- 1 teaspoon cornflour + 2 teaspoons water

- Salt to taste for seasoning the salmon

- Toasted sesame oil for frying the salmon

- Optional toppings: sesame seeds, spring onions


Method

  1. For the teriyaki sauce, in a saucepan combine the soy sauce, 50ml water, orange juice, sesame oil, ginger and garlic

  2. Cook over medium low heat for 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally. Meanwhile, prepare the salmon

  3. Pat dry the salmon fillets with paper towels (this will help them crunch up during frying) and season with salt

  4. Heat up a frying pan on medium high heat, add a drizzle of sesame oil and place the salmon fillets skin side down once the pan is hot

  5. Fry the fillets for 4 minutes on each side to get the skin crispy and the top golden

  6. While the salmon is resting, create a paste with the cornflour and 2 teaspoons of water

  7. Add the paste to the sauce and cook for an additional 3 minutes over low heat until thickened, stirring constantly

  8. Pour the sauce over the salmon or, for a neater presentation, brush the fillets with sauce and serve the remaining sauce on the side

  9. Add your toppings to taste and serve with any sides of choice

  10. Enjoy!
