Try something new with Salmon Teriyaki, kids will love the taste.
Salmon is a fish that I like but did not love until I began to eat it in this style. I also discovered that children absolutely love this dish as the marinade provides an almost sweet and sticky coating which they find irresistible. The best thing about it, is that all the family can eat it without it feeling like just another kid-friendly meal. It both smells and tasted delicious and it is fantastic re-heated the next day. If anything, the flavours improve with an extra night in the fridge.
So make this recipe and feed your family. Enjoy having something you may not have tried before!
- Prep:10 minutes
- Cooking time: 10/12 minutes
- You will need: baking tray, small pan, shallow dish

1 packet of skinned salmon fillets (approx. 600g)
3 tbsp. dry sherry

3 tbsp. Japanese soy sauce ( shoyu )
1 ½ tbsp. sugar

- To make the marinade, place the sherry, mirin, soy and sugar on a small pan and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes until it turns syrupy and reduces down in volume. Let it cool.

This dish goes very well with plain rice either, basmati or Thai jasmine. It’s also good with a helping of broccoli, French beans or stir fried Pak choi.
