This is a simple marinade that always works perfectly. One of my favorite salmon recipes. Serve with sesame noodles and baby sweet corn.

  • Heat the vegetable oil in a wok or skillet over medium-high heat. Drain the salmon and reserve the marinade. Pan fry the salmon 4 to 5 minutes per side, gradually adding the marinade to the pan, this will intensify the flavor and help to keep the salmon moist. Serve once the salmon is cooked through and is easily flaked with a fork.

Although there is no such thing as "Salmon Yakitori " since "Yakitori" roughly means "cooked bird " this recipe still works well with fish too. Read More

altho this recipe didnt really have any reviews i was excited to try it as i like the flavor of those marinade ingredients. i had my salmon marinated for a day and was even worried the salmon would be too salty/sweet. i was also worried about the possibility of the salmon burning black as that's what happens w/sugar when heated. when i cooked it per the recipe directions my salmon did burn/turn black and it wasnt even cooked all the way through! tried to salvage it to make it at least edible by covering it and letting it sit so it cooks but well pretty disappointing:( Read More

This was very tasty with a hint of sweetness. I cooked it on medium heat so it wouldn't burn and it turned out great. Will make again. Read More
