Recipe #183: Teriyaki Salmon

The last of my three new cookbooks is one of my favorite kinds-- one with minimal ingredients.  This one is 400 Recipes- Three & Four Ingredients by Jenny White and Joanna Farrow.  Nick loves salmon, so when I saw this recipe and how simple it was, I knew I had to try it.  I served it with a side of Uncle Ben's 90 second jasmine rice.


Salmon fillets, about 5oz each
Teriyaki marinade
2in piece of fresh ginger, peeled and cut into matchsticks
Sunflower oil


Put the salmon in a shallow, non-metallic dish and pour over the teryaki marinade.  Cover and chill for 2 hours.

Meanwhile, heat the sunflower oil in a small pan and add the ginger.  Fry for 3-5 minutes or until golden and crisp.  Remove and drain on paper towels.

Heat a pan until smoking hot.  Remove the salmon from the marinade and add, skin side down, to the pan.  Cook for 2-3 minutes, then turn over and cook for 1-2 minutes more, or until cooked through.  Remove from the pan and distribute on plates.  Top the fillets with the crispy ginger.

Pour the marinade into the pan and cook for 1-2 minutes.  Pour over the salmon and serve.
