Sweet salty salmon
I made a resolution to eat fish twice a week, as recommended by the Coursera nutrition course I’m taking.
60 ml mirin
35 grams maple syrup
60 ml soy sauce
500 grams salmon
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1 spring onion, halved and shredded into fine strips
Mix the mirin, maple syrup, and soy sauce in a shallow dish that will take all the salmon, and marinate the it for 3 minutes on the first side and 2 minutes on the second. Meanwhile heat a large non-stick frying pan on medium-high heat.
Cook the salmon in the hot, dry pan for 2 minutes and then turn the salmon over, add the marinade and cook for another 2 minutes.
Remove the salmon to whatever plate you’re serving it on, add the rice vinegar to the hot pan, and warm through.
Pour the dark, sweet, salty glaze over the salmon and top with the spring onion strips. Serve over soba noodles.
