Japanese-Style Glazed Salmon Recipe



  • 4 salmon filets, rinsed
  • sea salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1-2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons green onions, green parts only, diced thinly
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds


  • 1/4 cup sake (60 ml)
  • 1/4 cup dark soy sauce (60 ml)
  • 1 tablespoon mirin (sweet Japanese rice wine)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar (50 g)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger


  • 1/3 cup brown sugar (65 g)
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard


  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the sake, soy sauce, brown sugar, mirin and ginger. Season the salmon filets with salt and pepper and place them in a shallow dish (or plastic freezer bag) and add the marinade. Cover and chill for at least 2 hours; turning once or twice.
  2. Preheat the oven to 450°F / 250°C.
  3. In a small saucepan, combine the brown sugar and mustard. Heat over low heat until simmering and the brown sugar is completely dissolved.
  4. In a baking dish brushed with olive oil, place the salmon, skin side down. Brush with the glaze and bake for 8-10 minutes until just cooked, depending on thickness of the filets.
  5. Meanwhile, in a small skillet, toast the sesame seeds, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 2 minutes.
  6. Top the filets with any remaining glaze and garnish with green onions and sesame seeds. Serve immediately.
