Broiled Ginger Teriyaki Salmon

There's this one sushi place I love to go to in Pasadena, CA., called Afloat Sushi. It's one of those conveyer belt places. They have theirs in little boats floating on water. Once of the items I always have to get is the flame broiled salmon teriyaki. It's chunk of salmon flame broiled and basted with a teriyaki sauce. I always end up eat two of those. Along with a salmon skin roll.

I bought a nice long fillet of sockeye salmon from the farmer's market. Divided it for two. I simple seasoned it with salt, pepper and minced garlic. Placed it in the broiler for a couple of minutes giving it an initial cooking. At that time I made a ginger teriyaki sauce. It includes fresh ginger, soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, rice wine vinegar, some ground pepper and tomato ketchup. After the first few minutes, I basted the salmon with a thick layer teriyaki sauce and broiled it for another couple of minutes letting the sauce coat the fish. I basted it one last time right before serving. The final result was a tender flaky fish with a slight firm crust. So good.

At the request of my lovely mom, I served this over some sauteed asparagus with white wine sauce. I think I got her hooked on that sauce!!!!

Serves 2.

Broiled Ginger Teriyaki Salmon
2 salmon fillet
1 garlic cloves - minced

Teriyaki Sauce:
3 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp grated or minced fresh ginger
1 garlic clove - minced
1 tbsp tomato ketchup

(To view the white wince sauce click here)

Preheat your broiler.

Combine all the ingredients for the teriyaki sauce until sugar dissolves and slightly thickened.

Season the salmon fillets with salt, pepper and the minced garlic. Place the salmon on a lightly geased baking sheet and set into the broiler for 2-3 min.

The baste well with the teriyaki sauce. Broil for another 2-3 min.

Remove from broiler and serve.

man I miss cali and those sushi places!! we have no sushi joints here. you are so lucky!
I also love that you were not stingy with the sauce/topping. Nice!

Bob said...

Looks great! Salmon is one of the fish I have been meaning to try again. There are so many things I didn't like as a kid that I might like now...

pigpigscorner said...

I like broiling fish too, it gives a really nice charred crust. and I love salmon skin roll too!

Phyllis said...

So delish! I love broiled salmon, especially in teriyaki sauce. I'm going to try your easy recipe next time, I can never seem to get my teriyaki sauce to taste like the restaurant!
p.s. I love those floating sushi boats, so much fun :)

Broiled teriyaki salmon is one of my favorite dinners. It's sort of my happy food. :) I just wish the wild kind wasn't so gosh darn expensive now!!!

wow jeen i love this and great pics

Nutmeg Nanny said...

I have a confession. I don't like teriyaki. The one time I tried it I thought it tasted like soap. Now I think this has something to do with the fact that the teriyaki I tried was on a free piece of chicken from the Chinese restaurant in the mall but I'm not sure:) Since then I have not been able to bring myself to try it. Perhaps I should give it another try, but this time from a more reliable source. I have to admit yours looks really good.

Jenn said...

Chow & Chatter: Thanks.

Nutmeg: It's probably whoever made the sauce. Generally teriyaki has a lightly sweet-salt flavor.

Diana H said...

I like your mom's ideas- yours too. I love salmon, and I think this recipe sounds divine.

Jenn said...

Diana: Thanks.
