  • 2 ts garlic minced
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoon mirin


  • Add the garlic, chicken broth, mirin, and soy sauce to your skillet. Turn the heat up to med high, whisk the ingredients, and then wait until the sauce is bubbling.

  • Now lower the heat to around medium, and add the salmon. Cook each side for around 4 minutes (longer if you have thick pieces of salmon), spooning some of the sauce over each side of the salmon as it poaches.
