What are you an expert in?

I’m not an expert in many things, but I have perfected my craft in one area. I can make a mean Teriyaki Salmon with a side of shrimp fried rice. Fastest way to anyone’s heart is a good piece of salmon, that’s for sure. I decided to be nice and give you a rough idea of how to make it yourself. Maybe one day you too can become a decorated Salmon Master like me.

The stuff for the salmon (don’t skip anything, you can find everything, I believe in you!!):

3-5 cut fillets of salmon (skin on or off, your choice)

3-4 cloves of fresh garlic (minced or grated)

2 tsp of fresh ginger (grated)

3 Tbsp teriyaki sauce

3 Tbsp soy sauce

3 Tbsp Hoisin sauce

1 Tbsp white vinegar

1 Tbsp sesame oil

1/3 cup packed light brown sugar

Sesame seeds (for garnish)

Chopped green onions (also for garnish)

The prep:

  1. Cover a baking pan with foil and then grease. Set oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Combine sauce ingredients.
  3. Pour marinate over salmon (easier to use a ziplock bag), and let marinate for 20-45 minutes in the fridge.
  4. Put salmon on baking sheet. Bake at 400 for 14-17 minutes depending on the size of your salmon pieces.
  5. Simmer remaining marinade on pot.
  6. When salmon comes out the oven, pour sauce over fillets.
  7. Garnish with sesame seeds and green onions.
  8. Serve with side of rice of your choice.

It’s that easy and you get flaky, delicious salmon every time. You’re welcome.

    I love this; it looks so good!! Food to me is a great unifier; it can be a cultural lesson, family space and time, or a way to express love and care. Having a go-to recipe gives me a sense of self-sufficiency: knowing that I can take care of myself is important to me, and being able to make food for myself is a big part of that. What does food provide for you?
