Teriyaki Fish

Good evening bloggers! I was going through my email today and this dish from Mae popped right out to me. I am a sucker for fish and a sucker for teriyaki! I could put teriyaki and soy sauce on everything, but I don't. Anyway, we are going to be handling some fish tonight. So, let's grab our aprons, knives, and pans and get down to business!

Teriyaki Fish

You will need:

  • 4 fish fillets (Wild Alaskan Salmon, Farmed Striped Bass OR Pacific Halibut work wonderfully)
  • 1 tablespoon rice bran oil


  • 2 tablespoons sake
  • 4 teaspoons soy sauce


  • 1/4 cup mirin
  • 2 tablespoons soy
  • 1 teaspoon sugar

  1. Make the marinade by blending the sake and soy in a dish. 
  2. Place the fish fillets flesh side down in the dish and marinate for 10 minutes.
  3. Make the teriyaki sauce by blending together the mirin, soy and sugar, then whisk until the sugar has dissolved.
  4. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. 
  5. Using a paper towel, gently blot each fish fillet on both sides to absorb any excess marinade. 
  6. Place the fillets in the skillet (skin side down) and cook for 5 minutes. 
  7. Turn the fillets an cook for 1 minute.
  8. Transfer the fish to a large plate and peel off the skin.
  9. With a paper towel, wipe out any excess grease from the skillet. 
  10. Place it back over medium high heat and add the teriyaki. 
  11. Bring it to a boil, reduce the heat to medium and simmer the sauce for 1 minute. 
  12. Add the fish into the pan. 
  13. Tip the pan slightly and spoon some of the teriyaki over the fillets. 
  14. Cook them for 1 minute or until the center portion is just cooked through.
  15. Arrange on plates and top with teriyaki.
  16. Enjoy!

I hope you all have had a wonderful day. I will be back tomorrow with more Asian themed dinners for you to enjoy. Oh, just a little sneak peek of what next week brings... Who loves sweets? I do! Have a great evening and happy blogging!
