Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes
Total Time: 22 minutes
- 1 1/2 pounds skinless salmon fillets
- Kosher salt
- 3/4 cup sake wine
- 1/2 cup mirin (sweet cooking sake)
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1 T. grated fresh ginger
- 1 T. sugar
Salt the salmon well with kosher salt and set aside for 10 minutes.
In a large pan with a cover, bring the sake to a boil, then add the salmon and cover. When it returns to a boil, uncover and add the mirin and the soy sauce. Cover again.
When the mixture retuns to a boil, add the sugar and grated ginger and mix well. Cover and return to a simmer -- not a boil -- and simmer for 10 minutes or so. Turn off the heat.
Let stand for a minute or two, then serve with steamed rice and a little of the cooking liquid.
