Pan fried Teriyaki Salmon is one of the most delightful and simple dishes you could ever cook, the wonderful sauce is the perfect match for the rich fish

This Teriyaki Salmon dish is a rare foray for me into a dish that is not largely made from our garden, naturally I had to back that up with some vegetable noodles to make it feel right! We went on a supermarket shopping trip last weekend, the only reason we shop at supermarkets is for cleaning products however we always scout around and usually think… ‘Nah’, but stumbling on some beautiful fresh salmon fillets was a great treat and they accidentally slipped into our shopping basket.

There was absolutely no question as to what I was going to cook with them, I love Teriyaki Salmon, the sweet, salty and slightly sour sauce is my idea of heaven, I usually have to slum it with Teriyaki Chicken but pair it with salmon and I am in heaven. The only downside of the fish we found was that it was skinless, boooooo!  The crispy salmon skin with the Szechuan pepper would have been awesome but hey I got salmon so I can not complain.  You should definitely forgive me for my evident excitement, I love fish and somehow managed to move to a landlocked country where I can usually only get my hands on Pike, Carp or Catfish so my Teriyaki salmon stood at seven years and five months 😉 It really is a delightfully quick dish to make, literally 5 minutes to make the sauce and then 30 minutes to marinade and then 5 minutes for the fish to cook and you are good to go!

I genuinely miss fish and seafood a great deal, lived right in the centre of the UK before we moved to Hungary but we had the most wonderful fish market despite being about as far away from the sea as you could get on a small island. Fresh sea fish, shellfish, crustaceans formed a huge part of my diet and I never even thought about it when we left, I figured we live less than 15km away from a huge lake, we will be fine…  Silly mistake! Now it is certainly not a regret, but one of the most common questions you get asked when you move abroad is what do you miss from home and apart from the obvious friends and family answer mine always revolves around food, naturally!  For my wife it is English Teabags & Salt and Vinegar Crisps but for me it has only ever been one thing great fish and whilst it was not the greatest fish, this piece of salmon and and my teriyaki salmon dish evoked memories of being a child and getting ‘that’ gift for Christmas!

    Hi Brian,
    I’m a big seafood fan so I feel your pain. I eat salmon at least twice a week. I love that it is so versatile and takes to so many flavourings well. After seeing this on FB, I had to come see more. It’s just so darn gorgeous!
    Have a great weekend 🙂

      Thanks for strolling over Robyn, I love this too such a shame that I never put landlocked country with lack of sea food… #numptymistake 😉

    I grew up in the Chesapeake Bay region in the US; an area that is famous for seafood, even though it’s very difficult to eat locally caught seafood unless you catch it yourself or find a good seafood market (and even then what’s sold is usually from out of the area). We ate fish, but it was mostly frozen. Since moving to Spain we’ve eaten more seafood in much greater variety, including many freshwater fish. (OMG the trout!). Sorry to hear you’re having difficulty in your area. What I miss is the variety of sausages. I love chorizo, but it would be nice to have some kielbasa now and again. 🙂

      Thanks Lydia, trout seems to be very unpopular in Hungary and when it is available it is so horrendously expensive it makes me wince, the last time my wife ordered it her main dish cost pretty much the same price as everyone elses dinner combined, and there was 6 of us in total 😮 Now sausages are a different matter, the Hungarians have a huge selection and I have been making my own to top them up for years 😉
