Mirin Glazed Salmon Recipe
Before we begin, here’s a little background on Mirin:
Mirin is a type of Japanese rice wine with a sweet flavour and lower alcohol content. The sweetness of the Mirin creates a nice contrast to saltier sauces and condiments like salty soy sauce. The Mirin sauce will cause the salmon to caramelize while cooking, giving it a beautiful sear and gorgeous, rich mahogany glaze.

- 4 tbsp Mirin
- 4 tbsp brown sugar
- 4 tbsp soy sauce
- 4 pieces 6-ounce salmon filets, skin removed
- 100 ml water
- 1 tbsp rice vinegar
- 2 scallions, halved and sliced into fine strips
- Mix the Mirin, brown sugar, and soy sauce in a large dish. Stir to dissolve sugar. Place the salmon in the dish and marinate for 5 to 10 minutes, turning once.
- Set a very large non-stick skillet on the stove and heat over medium-high heat. Place the salmon filets in a hot, dry pan and cook for a few minutes until nicely seared and coated with a rich brown glaze. Turn the filets over, reduce the heat to medium, then add the marinade and water to the pan.
- Cook for 3 to 5 more minutes. If the sauce looks like it is reducing or thickening too quickly, just add a bit of water a few tablespoons at a time. Do not let it burn.
- Transfer fish filets to a serving platter or plate. If the sauce is nicely reduced and thickened, turn off the heat. Add the rice wine vinegar to the sauce and stir. Pour the sauce over the fish filets, top with scallion and serve!
