Wanted to make full use of existing mirin sauce and decided to google for a recipe on salmon and mirin. Voila! Saw Nigella’s recipe for baked salmon glazed with mirin and soya sauce . Lazy me decided to improvise the cooking method by not having to fry the fish in the pan to save my house from the fishy smell. It works! Using my beloved Sharp 4-in-1 super steam oven, I grilled the salmon for 10 minutes instead of frying it and heating up the serving sauce instead of warming in a pot.

Ingredients:
1 piece of salmon fillet enough for two/ three persons (about palm-sized)

2 tablespoons of light soya sauce
2 tablespoons of mirin sauce
2 tablespoons of brown sugar
1-2 tablespoons of vinegar for final serving sauce, depending your preference
1 tablespoon of chopped spring onion for garnish

Preparation:
1. Marinate salmon fillet in the mixture of light soya sauce, mirin sauce and brown sugar, 5 minutes on each side
2. Grill or bake one side salmon for 5 minutes, then the other side for another 5 minutes, pour some marinade sauce over while grilling
3. Add 2 tablespoons of vinegar into the remaining marinade sauce and warm it in microwave
4. Pour the sauce over salmon, sprinkle chopped spring onion and the salmon is ready to serve
