  • 1 lb salmon fillet
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • white and black sesame seeds, for garnishing

Teriyaki Sauce:

  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce or Tamari
  • 1/2 cup mirin
  • 2 tablespoons sugar


  1. Add all the ingredients in the Teriyaki Sauce in a saucepan and reduce it on low heat. As soon as the teriyaki sauce thickens, remove it from heat. Let cool.

  2. Heat up a pan or skillet over low to medium heat. Add a bit of oil and pan-sear the salmon (skin-side down) until the bottom part becomes super crispy. Cover the pan or skillet to make sure that the salmon is cooked through. Remove the salmon from heat, drizzle with the teriyaki sauce and garnish with the sesame. Serve immediately with steamed rice.
