Salmon teriyaki

This dish is one of my family’s favorite a norwegian and japanese fusion perhaps.
I usually make this with ready made teriyaki sauce, but it is quite easy to make the sauce your self. This dish takes about the same time to make as it takes to cook the rice.

Dinner for 4

800 g Filet of bone and skinless salmon
2 Onions
2 Bell peppers
2  dlSoy sauce
1 dl Mirin
4 tbsp Rice vinegar
5 tbsp Brown sugar
4 Cloves  of minced garlic
3 tsp Grated fresh ginger
1 dl Water
2 tsp cornstarch
Toasted sesame seeds and chopped spring onions to garnish
Serve this with cooked rice
Start by boiling the rice and follow the instruction on the packet.
Slice the onions and bell peppers and saute them until the onions are glossy but still firm.
In a pan add soy sauce, mirin, ricevine vinegar, sugar, garlic and ginger and give it a boil untill the sugar is dissolved. At this stage you add cornstarch and water to thicken the sauce, when the sauce is a bit thick reduce the heat ad lett it simmer.
Place the salmon pieces in the sauce
Then put the vegetable on top of the fish, cover and let it simmer untill it is done. The fish is done when it is slightly pinkish and glossy on top.
Plate 4 plates with the vegetable and place two pieces of fish on top and pour a few spoonfuls of the sauce on over the fish and finish by sprinkling sesame seed and spring onions on top. Enjoy this with a serving of rice and a glass of white.
