TERIYAKI (with fresh orange) SALMON

TERIYAKI (with fresh orange) SALMON

Mirin, or Japanese sweet rice wine, is a key component of teriyaki. Then there’s the soy sauce, spices (ginger, garlic, red pepper flakes and mustard, etc), sesame oil, sugar (honey, brown or white sugar and agave nectar). These days you see updated teriyaki recipes include orange juice, pineapple juice, or even lemon juice. When I make Teriyaki Chicken thighs or breasts, marinade with pineapple juice is my choice. With skinless salmon fillets, I like it marinating in a teriyaki marinade with fresh orange juice. No need to buy bottled teriyaki sauce, you can easily make your own.
