Servings: 2 servings
- Teriyaki Sauce
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 cup mirin
- 1/4 cup Japanese cooking wine sake
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 - 4 ounce salmon filets 1/2 lb
- 1 pineapple
- kitchen twine
For the teriyaki sauce bring all ingredients to a boil in a large saucepan and then turn heat to low, simmer and reduce by half about 10 minutes. The sauce should have consistency of a light syrup. Allow to cool and store in an airtight container for 3 weeks.
Soak kitchen twine in a small bowl with water. Set aside. Preheat your grill to 350° F.
Slice pineapple on four sides to make 4 planks. Cut and store pineapple in refrigerator for another use.
Rinse salmon under cold water and pat dry with paper towel. Lay a few sprigs of cilantro on top of a pineapple plank, then salmon filet and brush with teriyaki sauce. Add another sprig of cilantro and top with another pineapple plank. Secure with kitchen twine tightly so salmon doesn't slide out when grilling. Repeat with other salmon and pineapple.
Grill covered for 5 minutes and turn over, then cut kitchen twine. Remove pineapple plank and set on outer area of grill to continue to cook and caramelize. Baste top of each salmon with teriyaki sauce several times. Cover the grill and cook for a few more minutes until the salmon springs back when pressed slightly and is opaque.
Remove from grill and allow to rest 5 minutes. To plate, serve each teriyaki glazed grilled salmon on top of one of the grilled pineapple planks, baste one more time with any remaining teriyaki sauce and garnish with a sprinkle of sesame seeds. Cut remaining grilled pineapple from planks and serve with steamed rice.
