I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Rainy Day Salmon
...in your mind.

Rainy Day Salmon

Serves 8-10 - Growing up in Vancouver BC, it rained a lot. And we had salmon a lot. And sometimes we had it when it rained even. OK - so call me homesick. And one of the things I like about this is there no flipping - just cooking under the broiler until done. Boom.


  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup sake
  • 1 glove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced
  • Juice of 1 whole lemon
  • 1 whole salmon fillet - about 2 pounds, cut into serving pieces
  • Green onion and sesame seeds to garnish


  1. Combine all ingredients except the salmon in a saucepan and bring to a boil
  2. Turn down heat and simmer until slightly thickened and a bit syrupy - about 10 minutes
  3. Preheat oven to broil and cover a baking sheet with foil, it’s messy
  4. Place salmon on the foil and baste well with the sauce
  5. Broil the salmon about 6 inches away from the glowing coils until done - approximately 7 minutes for every inch of thickness, and If it starts to get crispy and a little bit black in spots, that’s good
  6. Remove from oven, baste with extra sauce and garnish with green onion and sesame seeds
