Grilled Salmon with Teriyaki Shiitake

The Good News Dr. Andrew Weil mixes sake with soy sauce, sesame oil and brown sugar to make an Asian-accented glaze for shiitake. Using the meaty-tasting mushrooms as a topping for salmon creates a dish loaded with heart-protective omega-3 fatty acids, B vitamins and protein.

How to make this recipe

  1. Preheat the broiler. In a small bowl, whisk the sake with the soy sauce, brown sugar and sesame oil. In a large nonstick, ovenproof skillet, heat 2 teaspoons of the canola oil. Add the shiitake and cook over high heat, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned in spots and tender, about 8 minutes. Add all but 1 tablespoon of the sake mixture and cook, stirring, until the skillet is dry and the mushrooms are glazed, about 2 minutes. Transfer the mushrooms to a plate.
  2. Wipe out the skillet and heat the remaining 1 teaspoon of canola oil. Add the salmon fillets and cook over high heat, turning once, until lightly browned, about 4 minutes. Spoon off any fat in the skillet. Remove the skillet from the heat, add the reserved 1 tablespoon of the sake mixture and turn the fillets to coat.
  3. Broil the salmon until the top is golden, lightly glazed and just cooked through, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Transfer the salmon to plates and top with the mushrooms. Sprinkle with the snipped chives and serve.

Suggested Pairing

Umami, often referred to as the "fifth taste," is that hard-to-pin-down savory note found in both the mushrooms and teriyaki sauce that top this grilled salmon. If there's one wine that pairs well with umami-rich dishes, it's Pinot Noir—particularly when it has an earthy edge.
