Japanese Inspired Sake Salmon And Rice

JaclynMcKewan's picture
  Salmon fillets 2
  Brown rice 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Sake/Dry vermouth 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Soy sauce 1 Tablespoon
  Fish sauce/Brown rice vinegar 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Worcestershire sauce 1 Teaspoon
  English mustard/Wasabi paste / plain yellow mustard 1 Teaspoon

Cook rice according to package directions.
While rice is cooking, place salmon on a foil-lined pan, under a broiler on low for 8-10 minutes. Check after 8 minutes for desired doneness.
While salmon is broiling, make the sauce. Heat the sake/vermouth, either in a small saucepan on the stove, or in the microwave, until boiling, to cook off the alcohol.
Add the other sauce ingredients to the sake/vermouth and stir.
When salmon is done, arrange pieces on 2 plates with equal portions of rice. Pour sauce over salmon, rice and (optionally) any vegetables.

Recipe Summary

Difficulty Level: 
This Jaclyn's adaptation of a Nigella Lawson recipe. Sake Salmon and Rice is a very healthy recipe that is strongly influenced by some Asian flavors! I would love to have this dish at least twice a week. Yum!
