You will need:

FOR THE MARINADE

FOR THE TERIYAKI SAUCE
- 1/4 cup mirin
- 2 tablespoons soy
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- Make the marinade by blending the sake and soy in a dish.
- Place the fish fillets flesh side down in the dish and marinate for 10 minutes.
- Make the teriyaki sauce by blending together the mirin, soy and sugar, then whisk until the sugar has dissolved.
- Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.
- Using a paper towel, gently blot each fish fillet on both sides to absorb any excess marinade.
- Place the fillets in the skillet (skin side down) and cook for 5 minutes.
- Turn the fillets an cook for 1 minute.
- Transfer the fish to a large plate and peel off the skin.

- Bring it to a boil, reduce the heat to medium and simmer the sauce for 1 minute.
- Add the fish into the pan.
- Tip the pan slightly and spoon some of the teriyaki over the fillets.
- Cook them for 1 minute or until the center portion is just cooked through.
