Method

  1. Heat the grill to high and brush a sturdy baking tray with oil. In a large bowl, mix the soy, mirin, sugar, ginger and garlic together until the sugar has dissolved, then toss the frozen salmon in the soy mix until coated. Tip the remaining marinade into a small saucepan and bring to a simmer.
  2. Place the tray about 4in away from the heat, then grill for 20 mins. Brush the fish every few mins with the simmering marinade until cooked through and glazed. If the fillets are thick, you may need to turn them on their sides so they cook evenly. Remove from the grill. Simmer the marinade until sticky, then pour it over the cooked salmon.
  3. For the cucumber salad, use a swivel blade peeler to peel the cucumber into slices. Make the dressing by mixing the vinegar with the soy sauce, sugar and sesame seeds. Toss the cucumber with the dressing and serve with the salmon and boiled rice.

This was great - the coolness of the cucumbers really went well with the heat in the sauce, definitely worth another cook. Even the picky one ate it all!

I love this recipe and so does my fussy 8 years old. Make it all the time and don't change a thing.

This is one of our week day staple dinners. We both really love it. Great flavours and really easy to make. Usually use fresh salmon.

I've made this a few times, but this time I followed DJW's suggestion and made it as a stir fry. Yum! The fish absorbs the flavour a lot better this way. Also used fresh salmon instead of frozen.

This is amazing! However i cook it with Steak (Ribeye). Marinate the steak in the mixture overnight and then cook it. Once you take the steak out cook the sauce and reduce it untill sticky!

Good for a mid-week supper. Used fresh salmon and marinated the fillets for an hour. Put in a hot oven to cook for 20 minutes rather than grill them, as they tend to burn quite quickly under a grill. Also added peas to the rice to give it all a bit more colour and served with a mixed salad.

Didn't do the salad but made it a salmon stir fry. As only me eating cut salmon into chunks and made marinade substituting tsp for tbsp and just 1 small clove of garlic and used light soy sauce as it was nearest. Left to marinate for the sfternoon. Stir fry some veg till just beginning to soften then added salmon for a few minutes followed by the marinade and a pack of straight to wok noodles. Delish so quick and all in the wok! Will do again for hubby but use chicken as he is not a fan of salmon.

Really liked this, also added in a bit of honey - need to watch grill carefull as can burn (maybe the extra honey), but gave a lovely finish

I found this very salty & wouldn't do it again. The cucumber salad was lovely but prefer serving salmon another way.

absolutely brilliant - didnt do the cucumber - just a simple salad worked fine as well.
but the salon turned out really really good - instant hit with the hubby!!
