Ingredients
  • ½ C low sodium soy sauce
  • ¼ C mirin
  • ¼ - ⅓ C honey (start with ¼ C then add more if the sauce is too salty for your taste)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp grated, peeled fresh ginger root
  • 1 TBS cornstarch
  • ¼ C + 2 TBS water
  • 1-2 TBS sesame seeds (optional)
  • 1 lb wild caught salmon filet
Instructions
  1. Combine the soy sauce, mirin, honey, garlic, and ginger in a small saucepan with ¼ cup water. Bring to a low boil.
  2. Mix the cornstarch with the 2 TBS water and add it to the pot.
  3. Low boil for 1 minute and turn off the heat. Make sure to continue stirring so the sauce doesn't start to burn. Add sesame seeds if desired.
  4. Preheat oven to 450 and line a baking sheet with foil.
  5. Pour half the sauce over the salmon, then bake for 10 minutes.
  6. Pour ¼ more of the sauce over the salmon again and cook another 5-10 minutes, or until salmon is cooked through.
  7. Serve with roasted asparagus or your favorite vegetables and drizzle remaining sauce over fish if desired.
