Japanese Broiled Salmon



Ok my friends, prepare to be introduced to one of the most delicious, easy and dummy-proof salmon dishes ever. You will need:

Big filet of salmon Sake
Pepper Soy sauce
Ginger Garlic
Spicy mayonnaise or regular Furikake or nori
Roasted sesame seeds  


First you start with the marinade: pepper, sake, soy sauce, ginger and garlic. I just eyeballed a generous amount of sake (since booze makes everything better), a splash of soy sauce and some garlic and ginger.




Salmon filet.


Marinate the salmon for 15-30 minutes. I don’t like to leave it in the marinade too long because the flavour of the salmon can easily get overwhelmed.


The special ingredient. Thai hot chili mayonnaise is life changing. If you can find it, buy some.


Take the salmon out of the marinade and slather it with mayonnaise. I know, mayonnaise on salmon? I too was skeptical when I read the recipe, but I saw the light after I tasted it. And it was good.


Now you sprinkle on the furikake, (mixture of seaweed, bonito flakes and sesame seeds usually) or crumbled seaweed.


And a generous amount of roasted sesame seeds.


Put the filet in the oven at 400 degrees until it’s cooked and flaky. How long it takes depends on how thick your fish is.




This is bliss my friends. The mayo, seaweed and salmon go so well together and I love the flavour of the roasted sesame seeds. This recipe requires very little prep and tastes amazing. You really don’t need much more than some steamed rice and some veggies alongside. This is a great dinner party recipe since you can easily double the servings by getting a larger filet. Tags: ,
