Japanese Style Broiled Salmon Steak

11 Mar

This is a simple recipe for those days when you want some fish for a quick and healthy meal. You can marinate the fish for an extended time for the best flavor, but even a quick marinate is quite adequate in my experience. I made this for Sunday lunch, and it was both easy and delicious even though the fish was only marinated for about 45 minutes. The proportions of the marinate shown below is enough for 24 ounces of fish. If you are planning on making only 1 fish steak, you can reserve the rest of the marinade and leave it in the fridge for later use. It is a very versatile marinate that can work for different types of fish, although you would probably have the best results with oily fish such as salmon, black cod, mackerel, and Chilean sea bass.

Ingredients:

  • 4 salmon steaks (about 24 ounces total)
  • 1/4 cup mirin
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup sake
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tables grated fresh ginger

Directions:

  1. Combine all ingredients, except salmon, into a small saucepan and heat until the sugar dissolves. Set aside to let cool
  2. Marinate the fish in the sauce for as long as you have time for – hopefully at least 30 minutes and up to overnight
  3. Remove salmon steaks and arrange on a baking dish or fish griller, making sure to remove any excess marinade
  4. Turn on broiler to high setting. Broil fish at about 6 inches away from the fire. Turn fish over once, after about 10 minutes. The fish should be done in 15-20 minutes of total cooking time
  5. Enjoy!
