Dishing Up the Dirt

Teriyaki Salmon with Broccolini

Late last fall our neighbor gifted us with 5 pounds of fresh caught salmon. It was an awesome gift and we ate most of it right away but froze a little to enjoy this winter. I finally pulled the remainder of the fish out of the freezer last week and whipped up this tasty meal. I was inspired by a recipe in bon appetit magazine and added some roasted broccolini for good measure. This meal was simple, delicious and I hope you all enjoy it as much as we did. Enjoy with a glass of white wine and a good dinner date and you’re all set!

Cheers from Tumbleweed Farm.

Teriyaki Salmon with Broccolini

Prep Time: 15 minutes    Cook Time: 20 minutes    Serves: 4

  • 1 bunch of broccolini, trimmed
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • salt and pepper
Teriyaki Sauce
  • 1/2 cup sake
  • 1/4 cup mirin
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds wild caught salmon
  • pinch of salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 425. Toss the broccolini with the oil, salt and pepper and place on a baking sheet. Roast in the oven until lightly browned and slightly crisp. Roughly 18- 20 minutes. Toss halfway through cooking.
  2. Combine the sake, mirin and soy sauce in a small bowl and set aside.
  3. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Slice the salmon on the diagonal into four 1"inch-thick portions; lightly season with salt. Cook, skin side down, until skin is brown and crisp, about 4 minutes. Flip and cook until the other side is just beginning to brown, about 2 minutes. Transfer the salmon fillets to a plate.
  4. Pour off the fat from the skillet. Bring the teriyaki sauce to a boil in the skillet over medium heat. Cook until reduced by two-thirds, about 4 minutes. Stir in the sesame seeds and add salmon, skin side up, and cook, spooning the sauce over, until sauce is syrupy and salmon is just cooked through, about 2 minutes.
  5. Serve with broccolini and enjoy.
