Recipe by: The Lazy Makoti

Combine marinade ingredients, mix well, and pour over salmon in a large resealable bag. Marinate in the fridge for at least 2 hours

Heat oil in a pot over medium heat. Sear salmon skin-side up for 2-3 minutes, then flip and cook for another 2 minutes. Pour the marinade over the fish, reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes.

Remove the salmon and set aside, then continue to cook sauce till thickened

In the meantime, cook the sushi rice
Serve the salmon over sushi rice, spoon glaze on top, and garnish with cucumber, edamame, avocado, and sesame seeds

Chefs Tip:

  1. Tastic Rices of the World Sushi Rice is a short grain rice, when cooked, it develops a sweeter, stronger flavour than any other rice variety
  2. The cooked grains stick together, perfect for rolling and shaping California Rolls, Nigiri, Maki, Fashion Sandwiches and other Japanese dishes
  3. Once rolled, you’ll find it amazingly easy to eat with chopsticks.
  4. You can use chicken, beef, or even pork for the protein if you don’t want the salmon.
