I have this Takara plum sake white wine, that I got as a gift; it has a sweet aroma similar to mirin so I thought of using it for cooking.

  • Heat about a tablespoon of olive oil in a pan.
  • Wash and pat dry the salmon fillet pieces.
  • Make sure that the salmon doesn't have scales.
  • Season well with salt and pepper.
  • Pan-fry the salmon, skin side first, cook until browned and crispy then flip to cook the other side, but do not over-cook.
  • Take the salmon out of the pan and put it on a platter, set aside.
  • Add minced ginger to the pan, if there is barely oil left, just a little to cook the ginger.
  • Take the pan off of the heat and add wine or broth then put it back on the stove and bring to a boil.
  • Scrape the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon to get all those delicious bits.
  • Add a little soy sauce then let it reduced to your desired consistency.
  • Do a taste test before finally pouring it onto the cooked salmon.
  • Garnish with parsley or chopped green onions, if you have some.
  • Serve with sauteed spinach or any side that you prefer.
  • Enjoy! :)
