Broiled Mirin Wild Salmon Dinner Fillets


Eight 6 oz. Healthy Heart Wild Salmon Dinner Fillets
Mirin (Japanese sweetened rice wine)
Dash of Salt (optional)
Sesame seeds (raw, not toasted)


Place the filkets skin side down on a plate. Brush the flesh with mirin. Refrigerate uncovered for an hour or more (the fridge's lack of humidity dries the salmon's surface.) 

Brush the salmon a second time with mirin. Refrigerate again, uncovered, for an hour or more (even overnight.) 

Heat the broiler. Broil the salmon, skin side down, for 3 minutes, then skin side up for another 3 minutes. Turn the salmon side up, brush with mirin again, sprinkle with salt and then sprinkle on the sesame seeds. Broil until the seeds begin to brown, crackle, and pop, about 2 minutes. Serve immediately.

Serves 8.
