Crispy Teriyaki Blooming Salmon Instructions

To prepare the salmon:
  • Slice each salmon fillet diagonally into a crisscross blooming shape, without cutting through the skin. Each cut is about ½ inch apart.
  • Season them with the salt and white pepper.
  • Coat them with the cornstarch and dust off the excess.
To fry the salmon:
  • In a pot over high heat, add the oil. Heat it up to 325 degrees F or 163 degrees C. Carefully put in the salmon fillet, one at a time. Fry until golden brown for about 3 minutes. Remove and drain.
  • Repeat with the other one.
To make the teriyaki sauce:
  • In a pot over medium heat, add the chicken stock, soy sauce, sake, and sugar. Whisk and bring it to a simmer, and add the cornstarch slurry (1 tablespoon of cornstarch and 3 tablespoons of water.) Stir until the sauce is thickened. Then place the scallions inside and mix well.
To serve:
  • Serve the sauce on the side, or drizzle them over the salmon. Garnish with the scallions and enjoy!
