Seared Salmon with Soy Honey Lime Sauce

Seared Salmon with Soy Honey Lime Sauce

Adapted from The Gastrokid Cookbook by Hugh Garvey and Matthew Yeomans

Serves 4
Prep Time: 20 minutes (includes marinate time)
Cook Time: 10 minutes

  • 1/2 cup mirin
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated fresh ginger
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 pounds salmon fillet
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

1. Combine mirin, ginger, vinegar and 2 tablespoons of the soy sauce. Add the salmon and marinate for 15 minutes at room temperature.

2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the remaining 2 tablespoons of soy sauce with the honey and lime juice and bring to a boil. Stir frequently until it thickens, about 4 minutes.

3. Preheat the broiler. When it’s hot, put the salmon in, skin side down. After about 5 minutes, flip. Depending on how you like your salmon, broil for another 3 to 5 minutes. After 8 minutes, the thickest part will be a little rare in the center and the thinner ends will be quite well-done.

4. Drizzle the soy-honey-lime glaze over the fish and serve.
