Salmon Teriyaki [Japanese Food at Home]

Salmon Teriyaki

Whenever we visited Japanese restaurant, we always ordered sashimi for adults and something cooked for J. Well, I got to choose the dish for him as I shared with him most of the time. I tend to order something that I seldom cook at home such as katsu-don, mushroom fried rice and salmon teriyaki. J loves salmon teriyaki very much, he could finish a bowl of rice with it. I think it is quite a lot for a 2-year old boy.

Since J loves salmon teriyaki, I am more than happy to cook for him. It is hard to get him to eat fish sometimes. Teriyaki is pretty easy to prepare with pre-prepared sauce, simply marinate fish or chicken in the sauce for an hour or so then either grill or pan-fry it.

Salmon Teriyaki

Teriyaki sauce recipe is adapted from Practical Japanese Cooking cookbook, it can be prepared in bulk and store in the fridge up to a week.

280ml mirin
160ml sake
160 ml Japanese dark soy sauce - contains <18% of salt (similar to Malaysian light soy sauce) Methods:
Combine all ingredients in a sauce pan, bring to boil over high heat then simmer until the volume is slightly reduced (about 10%).

To cook chicken or fish teriyaki:

  1. Marinate chicken or fish (not too thick) in some sauce for an hour.
  2. Remove chicken/fish (pat dry with paper towel if desired), and reserve the sauce.
  3. Heat oil in pan (just enough to coat the pan) and pan-fry chicken/fish until almost done.
  4. Add in the sauce reserved, bring to boil then simmer until it is reduced.
  5. Serve warm with steamed rice.

Hi Lydia
Is sake a must? If I omit, does it affect the taste?

Would love to try this.

I love salmon fish and this is such a flavorful way to make it. Now I can make it at home and not pay so much for it at the Japanese restaurants :).

Sake is a must, if do without sake it will taste like sweet soy sauce. If sake if not available, try substitute with chinese rice wine.


I think he will like it, marinated salmon has no "fishy" (I think you know what I meant?) taste/smell.

Pay less, and bigger portion too. :P

I LOVE salmon- that looks delish! My absolute favorite salmon dish is linguine with smoked salmon. It's definitely not healthy, but it tastes amazing!
