¾ pound salmon fillet
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons sugar
¼ cup mirin (rice wine)
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon wasabi (Japanese horseradish)
Heat the broiler element in your oven, and place your oven rack one position lower than the very top.
Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
Cut the salmon fillet into 1-inch wide strips.
This helps it cook faster.
Place the strips on the cookie sheet, skin side down.
Combine the remaining ingredients in a small bowl, and brush salmon with the sauce.
Broil in the oven for 2 minutes, and brush again.
Repeat every 2 minutes until you have cooked the salmon 10 total minutes.
Serves 2 but easily doubles or triples.
This salmon is delicious with rice and the Sesame Spinach we featured on One Big Happy Table.
