broiled teriyaki salmon

wanna learn to make your own teriyaki sauce?
here's how :)

(recipe via my father's daughter)

1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons mirin
3 tablespoons honey
1/3 cup water
1 teaspoon peeled and finely grated ginger
2 sprigs fresh cilantro
4 6-ounce salmon fillets, skin discarded
1 tablespoon finely minced fresh chives, for serving

1. combine the soy sauce, mirin, honey, water, ginger,
and cilantro in a small saucepan over high heat.
once it boils, turn the heat to low and let it simmer for 2 minutes.
remove the saucepan from the heat and let the sauce cool down.

(oh, and taste it... it's delicious!!) :)

2. once it's cool, pour into a large bowl or plastic freezer bag and add the salmon.
marinate in the fridge for at least an hour, up to overnight.

3. when you're ready to eat, preheat the broiler.
put the salmon on a heavy baking sheet with whatever sauce
adheres to it and broil until cooked to your liking, 7-8 minutes.

4. while it's cooking, strain the extra sauce into a clean saucepan,
bring to a boil, and let it reduce.

5. to serve, drizzle the cooked salmon with some
of the extra sauce and a sprinkle of chives.

this salmon was amazing.
(thanks to the homemade teriyaki sauce)

although i will say, you can cook your salmon any way your heart desires...
for some reason, i just prefer baking mine.
and those of you that have a BBQ - that would work too! :)
