Salmon Recipe #1: Ginger-Teriyaki Salmon
This is one of my personal favorites, as well as a favorite of many of my friends. You can play with this recipe, so don’t think everything has to be exact in order to turn out right.
- 1 fillet of salmon
- 3 cups fresh peeled ginger, cubed
- ½ cup peeled garlic
- ½ cup of Canola oil
- ½ cup of Kikkoman teriyaki sauce
- ¼ cup of Kikkoman soy sauce
Heat the oven to 375F.
Make sure the salmon is skinned and put into a glass dish. Grind fresh ground pepper over salmon. (To skin salmon you hold a semi sharp knife at a 35 degree angle as you keep the knife slightly pointed towards the fish.)
In a blender or food processor, add ginger and garlic, and blend. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until you have the consistency of a thick sauce. (If you prefer a thinner sauce, add more of the liquid ingredients).
Pour sauce over salmon and bake for 20-25 minutes. For perfectly cooked salmon, make sure it is slightly undercooked when you remove it from the oven. Often, by the time you serve, (even within 5 minutes), it will be cooked enough. The biggest key to incredible salmon is making sure that it is not overcooked.
The more you experiment with this recipe, the better you will get at it. It’s very hard to mess up and you’ll love it!
