This recipe doesn't ask for any additional mirin or white sugar. You can make a richly seasoned delicious teriyaki sauce using just these ingredients. Try it with pork or salmon as well as with the amberjack (buri) shown.
Heat some oil in a frying pan and brown the fish on both sides. Cook the fish through.
When the fish is cooked, add the maple syrup and coat the fish on both sides with it.
Add the soy sauce and coat the fish evenly with it. Transfer the fish to serving plates, and pour the sauce in the pan over them.
This is salmon teriyaki made with offcuts. I really recommend salmon!
Pork teriyaki with garlic added. Add the sliced garlic with the oil to the pan.
Story Behind this Recipe
Canada means maple syrup!
This sauce is rather sweet. If you don't like sweet sauces, taste it at Step 3 and add a little more soy sauce (about 1 teaspoon) if needed. The amberjack teriyaki shown here is not pre-seasoned, so the fish should be enjoyed with the sauce. If there's not enough sauce for you here, please increase the amount in the same ratio.
