A simple sauce to add to salmon or chicken
2 salmon fillets
5 tbsps soy sauce
4 tbsps mirin
2 tbsps brown sugar
- Mix the soy sauce, mirin and sugar in a pan and bring to the boil, stirring well.
- Once boiling, leave to simmer until the liquid has reduced and thickened to a glossy syrup.
- Brush the salmon with some of the sauce and place under the grill for five minutes.
- Repeat this process a further two to three times, or until the fish is cooked through, making sure some sauce remains to serve.
Add 2 tbsps of sake to the teriyaki sauce for a richer, deeper flavour.
