What is teriyaki salmon?

Sushi chef & sake sommerlier Zoë Escher

Teriyaki is a Japanese cooking method where foods, such as fish or meat, are marinated and later brushed with a glazed sauce before being cooked by frying. The word ‘teriyaki’ is derived from ‘teri’, which refers to the shiny from the glazed sauce, and ‘yaki’, which means frying or grilling in Japanese.

The sauce is the heart of this dish. It is a sauce that is made from scratch and is a thick. The shiny sauce clings to the food and provides a sweet and salty balance.
