Teriyaki Salmon

Finally I managed to get a bottle of Japanese sake from Jusco (earlier failed to get one as I always searching at the Japanese foods section but not realized sake only sell at Alcohol section as this is non Halal item !!) . I immediately tried my kid’s favourite Teriyaki salmon, learnt how to cook this from a TV cooking show recently. Wor, the taste was exactly like those served in Japanese restaurant, sweet and flavourful, so next time we do not need to go Japanese restaurant to have the good Teriyaki salmon.

The salmon look good. Nicely brown and very glossy with sauce. My husband like his salmon and tuna cook this way too but I am too lazy to cook the sauce from scratch. I just get the ready bottle kind :)

That looks wonderful, Sonia! I make something like this, but wrap it in parchment...adding some ginger and garlic along with the sake and soy sauce. We love it.

Yummy salmon teriyaki! Fantastic food photography and styling! Eh, for Japanese stuff hor, I usually like to try my luck at Isetan KLCC and Jusco Mid-Valley. Closest to me mah ... But I heard the Jusco in Klang is large too, though never been there before.

Next time, you be my sifu and tell me more about your food photography and styling secrets ar? Hope to see you again! I still owe you one meal!
