This easy Japanese recipe uses some of the freshest salmon available and makes it into a delicious and healthy meal. Salmon is rich and healthy with omega-3 omega-6 fatty acids, protein, low in sodium and carbohydrates. Salmon is also delicious and easy to prepare, like this simple salmon teriyaki sauce recipe. The recipe requires only four (4) main ingredients: soy sauce, mirin, rice and it’s lightly steamed rice. It calls for short-grained rice for the base which has been cooked to lose its shape but has not been absorbed by the liquid.

The ingredients are laid out for the easy Japanese recipes like the salmon teriyaki and a steamed rice bowl. First, make the sauce by adding the margin or sweetened rice wine and turning it to medium or dark gold color. Add the sugar and wait until it turns into a darker color. Then add the salmon and continue to stir it until you notice that it is no longer lumpy. Place the lid of the saucepan and allow it to come to room temperature. Set the steamed rice bowl into the pre-heated oven.

Rice Dishes With Sauce

After about fifteen minutes or so, remove the lid of the oven and let the rice bowl cook for another five minutes. When the rice bowl has reached the appropriate temperature, place a scoop of the teriyaki sauce in the center and turn it over so that the white sauce coats all sides of the bowl. Then place the lid of the oven and let the sauce cook for another ten minutes. Open the oven and add the sushi roll and sit it in there. Cover the roll tightly with the teriyaki sauce and let it cook for the final five minutes.

After this, it’s time for another steamed rice dish called new better if you like your sushi rolls firm. Start with short-grained rice. Bring it to room temperature and then add the short grained rice along with the salmon and sauces. Cover the roll tightly with the teriyaki sauce. Serve up the roll with the fresh vegetables.
