mirin (Japanese sweet wine)
4 (6 ounce)
chopped fresh basil
Have made this twice and wonderful, both times... omitted the basil and grilled rather than pan fried... but the marinade is wonderful... gave it 5 stars for flavor ....
This was absolutely delicious. Thank you for sharing. I omitted the fresh basil (didn't have any at the time). I cooked the salmon fillets in aluminum foil packets at 425 degrees for 12 minutes (my husband doesn't like the smell of fish cooking). The salmon was tender and flavorful. We'll definitely be making this again.
My husband and daughter both really liked this salmon. They said the flavour of the marinade was excellent. We grilled this instead of sauteeing it and it worked well. Thanks!
easy and delicious!
I did this on the grill outside. Very tasty though I didn't remember the basil......I have a pot of basil thriving on my patio. Go figure LOL Anyway, thanks for sharing.
Delish!! Didn't have sake, so used dry white wine and added some minced fresh ginger. Family including kids loved it, will def make again!!
The marinade was amazing! I was worried it would be too strong when I tasted some of it directly, but the end result was a subtle, creamy, savory taste that blended perfectly with the fish, with just a hint of sweetness. My kids loved it! Served really well with some steamed kale and rice on the side.
The problem I can think of is that some of the ingredients are a little pricey to buy just for making this dish once (sake, miso, mirin, etc.). But I generally have those around, so it wasn't a problem.
I am so glad that I found this recipe! It tasted great! I didn’t make any changes to the main ingredients, but had to leave out the basil garnish since I didn’t have it on hand. I was only able to marinate the salmon in the fridge for an hour instead of 2 so I can only imagine how much tastier it would be! Also, I ended up cooking it in parchment as that’s how I like to cook my fish. This recipe is definitely going into the regular rotation.
