Sake Glazed Salmon

It can’t get more simple than this: sake glazed salmon. It took me 10 minutes to make this. And as always, I love the crispy salmon skin!




  • ¼ cup Japanese sake
  • 2 TBS brown sugar
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 2 TBS rice vinegar
  • Fatty salmon fillet (with skin)


  1. Mix the sake, brown sugar, and soy sauce in a baking dish or bowl that will fit the fish
  2. Marinate the salmon in for 3 minutes on the first side and 2 minutes on the skin side
  3. Heat a pan on high, use a tiny bit of oil if you want
  4. Cook the salmon for 2 minutes (skin facing down) and then turn it over, add the marinade and cook for another 2 minutes
  5. Remove the salmon, and add the rice vinegar to the hot pan for 10-15 seconds
  6. Pour the glaze over the salmon
  7. Serve with spring mix salad and/or rice

    This recipe looks pretty simple, too. I think I could handle a marinade like this! Maybe I’ll try it this weekend.

    I really love your blog, Ron.
