Soy-sake marinated salmon

Andreas Trauttmansdorff


Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sake , or sherry
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp freshly grated or bottled chopped ginger
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 salmon fillets , each 180 to 250 g

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, stir sake with soy, honey, ginger and salt. Add salmon. Turn to evenly coat. Cover and refrigerate, turning occasionally, at least 30 minutes, preferably 4 hours.
  • To barbecue, lightly oil grill. Heat barbecue to medium-high. Place fish, skin side up, on grill. Barbecue with lid closed 5 minutes. Brush with marinade, then turn over. Discard leftover marinade. Continue grilling until a knife tip inserted into centre of fish comes out warm, 4 to 8 more minutes, depending on thickness of fillets.

Don’t worry if you don’t have sake ? this works equally well with sherry, which is less expensive than most wines. Both flavours blend deliciously with a little soy and a hint of honey.
