From Nigel Slater's Dish of the Day
A deliciously simple way to cook a salmon fillet - sweetened with rice wine and sesame then pan-fried.
Marinate the salmon in a bowl with the mirin, groundnut and sesame oils for 30 minutes.
Fill a plate with sesame seeds and place the salmon flesh-side down to cover evenly.
Pan-fry the salmon for six minutes skin-side down and then turn for three final minutes of cooking.
- 1 portioned salmon fillet, skin on
- 4 tbsp mirin
- 1 tbsp groundnut oil
- 1 tbsp sesame oil
- 50g/1¾oz sesame seeds
