Fastest Fish Teriyaki Yet
Learn how to make a quick and easy teriyaki sauce and use it to sauté white-fleshed fish like cod. This simple and delicious teriyaki fish recipe brings out delicately sweet-savory flavors, perfect for a flavorful Japanese meal.
I've written about teriyaki before, the real teriyaki, that is -- the thin glaze brushed on while sautéing or grilling that instantly adds tremendous flavor and a beckoning sheen to foods. There are bunch of ways to prepare teriyaki (like this way and this way); here's one I just tried that works amazingly well for fish, and is super easy: Mix together 1 part mirin, 1 part soy sauce and 2 parts sake and set aside (for a pound of fish, I used 1/8 C mirin, 1/8 C soy sauce and 1/4 C sake). Pan-sauté a white-fleshed fish like cod for about 1 minute on each side. Pour in the mirin-soy sauce-sake seasoning mixture and cook until about 1/2 the liquid evaporates, about 4 minutes or so. That's it. What you'll have is fish just cooked through and infused with delicately sweet-savory flavor, like the cod in the photo above. Perfecto.
