Fast & Easy Dinner: Teriyaki Salmon

Fast & Easy Dinner: Teriyaki Salmon

If you aren't familiar with cooking with Asian flavors or fish, experiment with this simple recipe. The classic Teriyaki flavors are mild and crowd pleasing. There's no need to head to a specialty store for hard-to-find ingredients, the components are common pantry staples. Sliced salmon fillets are coated with a mixture of soy, fresh ginger, and wasabi before being placed under a broiler. This dish comes together in minutes, making it ideal for the end of the week. To learn how it's done,

My momma makes really good teriyaki salmon. She cuts the salmon like in this recipe, dredges it in flour, and then pan-cooks it. When it's almost done she adds the teriyaki sauce and turns off the heat (so the sugar in the sauce doesn't burn). Mmmm!

TidalWave, if you have a toaster oven, you can use the broil setting on it. If not, you can pan-sear the salmon and then cover while keeping the pan over medium heat. It should get the fish cooked, but you won't get the same kind of sweet glaze. And ValenCina, if you grate ginger with a microplane into some cheesecloth, you can get ginger juice, which is great when mixed into cocktails, sodas, or iced tea, as well as pretty potent flavoring for food.
