This is a DR Weil Recipe. Tip: Live Longer by Eating Fish? Maybe. Fatty fish from cold northern waters (such as salmon) are a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, the special polyunsaturated fats our bodies need for optimum health. This weekend, try this wonderful and easy recipe that even non-fish eaters will love.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare the marinade by mixing the sake, soy sauce (a reduced-sodium variety if you prefer), ginger, garlic, and brown sugar together in a small bowl.
  2. Reserve 1/4 cup of the marinade.
  3. Rinse the salmon fillets under cold water, place in a glass or ceramic dish, and pour the marinade over it.
  4. Cover and let marinate in the refrigerator for 1 to 3 hours, spooning the liquid over any exposed parts of the fish once or twice.
  5. Prepare the grill or preheat the broiler to high heat.
  6. Remove the fish from the marinade and place on foil on the grill or a broiler pan.
  7. Broil or grill until done, being careful not to overcook.
  8. Pour reserved marinade over fish and serve at once.

Last week we had some friends over to play bridge. I made this and it was delicious. I marinated the salmon the night before and then fired up the grill about 10 minutes before they arrived and it cooked beautifully. It was good to the last drop. I did not use the brown sugar and upped the garlic to 4 cloves. I also marinated it in a Tupperware container and just kept flipping it every time I opened the refrigerator. I bought a whole salmon and only used half, but I will definately make the rest with this recipe.

Finally a salmon recipe that my husband loves! He has been begging me to find a Teriyaki Salmon recipe and with yours now I have one that is easy to prepare too! I only marinated it for 1 hour and it tasted perfect. Found and made during ZWT7.
