Teriyaki Marinated Wild BC Salmon with Cucumber, Edamame & Greek Yogurt Salad from Catch Restaurant
1 Tbsp chopped fresh ginger
1 Tbsp peeled garlic cloves
5 Shiitake mushrooms
6 green onions chopped in 1″ pieces
250g Brown Sugar
1 cup dry white wine
3/4 cup Mirin
Soy sauce to taste
1 Side of Fresh Wild BC sockeye salmon – skin and pin bones removed
1 Whole cucumber – peeled and seeded
1/2 cup edamame beans, blanched and chilled
2 oz plain Greek yogurt
2 oz birch syrup (or maple)
salt to taste
Cut portions of Salmon to the appropriate size (2 oz for small appetizer, 5 oz for main course) Try to keep the thickness even through out.
In a heavy bottom pot brown the garlic, ginger mushrooms and onions. Deglaze with wine and reduce by 75%. Add the Mirin and reduce by 50%. Add the brown sugar and cook on a low heat until the mixture is thick. Add the soy to thin the mixture and for seasoning. Strain the sauce and cool to room temperature.
Marinate pieces of salmon in the teriyaki sauce for about 4 hours until the salmon starts to cure. Remove the salmon from the marinade and let any excess marinade drain off. If you prefer to cook the fish then spoon a touch of the teriyaki on the fish and cook in an oven until hot. If you prefer the fish to be cold, then simply eat it as is.
Chop cucumber into small pieces and season with salt. Let the cucumber drain in a colander for 10 minutes. Rinse the cucumber with cold water and pat dry with paper towel. Mix the remaining ingredients together and taste for seasoning.
