I found this delicious dish on the web at Eat, Live Run while surfing for enticing looking recipes for summer. This dish can be cooked on the grill or seared in the frying pan. I think it would make a great light summer meal served with a fresh green salad and a rice of your choice. Yum
1 lb fresh salmon fillet
3 tbsp soy sauce
3 tbsp mirin (Japanese sweet rice wine)
3 tbsp sake
2 tbsp honey
2 tsp cooking oil
Combine the soy sauce, mirin, honey, and sake in a resealable plastic bag. Add the salmon and mix well to coat. Place in the fridge to let marinate for 1 hour or up to 8 hours.
After salmon has marinated, remove from fridge and bag, reserving the marinade. Heat the cooking oil in a large skillet or frying pan over medium heat. When hot, add the salmon and sear for about 2 minutes per side. Turn the heat to low and add the remaining marinade. Cover and cook for 4-5 minutes, until cooked through.
* If grilling, marinade the salmon, grill it and pour hot, reduced marinade over just before serving.
