Source: Ooni Pizza Ovens
Step up your salmon game with our easy ginger-laced teriyaki marinade. The high fat content of salmon fillets mean the fish will hold up well against a high heat, while marinating them before cooking makes for meltingly soft fillets – perfect for a quick grill in your Ooni pizza oven.
Serves
2

Ingredients:

For the salmon

  • 3 8.5 oz. (240g) salmon fillets (or different sized fillets that total 720g)
  • 1 scallion (spring onion), finely sliced
  • 1 tbsp. (15g) black sesame seeds
  • 1 tbsp. (15g) white sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp. (40ml) olive oil

For the Teriyaki Marinade

  • 3 tbsp. (45g) cornflour
  • 5 fl. oz. (150ml) soy sauce
  • 5.3 oz. (150g) soft brown sugar
  • 2.8 oz. (80g) ginger, minced
  • 4 tbsp. (80ml) toasted sesame oil
  • 3 tbsp. (60ml) mirin
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

Directions:

  1. 1. In a small bowl, mix the cornflour with 3 tablespoons of boiling water and mix well until fully dissolved. Add a touch more water if needed to dissolve the cornflour fully. Set aside.
  2. 2. In another bowl, combine the rest of the marinade ingredients. Add the cornflour mixture to the marinade. Heat the marinade in a microwave on medium heat for 3 minutes, or use a saucepan over medium heat to warm up the marinade until it begins to thicken. Heating up the marinade activates the cornflour and helps it to thicken the marinade, so that once the marinade is cooked it turns into a sticky glaze rather than just a flavorful sauce.
  3. 3. In a dish, cover the salmon fillets with the marinade and leave to marinate in the fridge for at least half an hour.
  4. 4. Preheat your Uuni 3 or Ooni Pro to 662°F (350°C). You can check the temperature inside your oven quickly and easily using an infrared thermometer. Add the olive oil to your cast iron pan and place in your oven to preheat the pan.
  5. 5. Remove the preheated pan from the oven and place the salmon skin side down in the pan. At this stage, there shouldn’t be too much marinade in this pan—you want to grill the fish first rather than poaching it in the marinade.
  6. 6. Return the pan to the oven to cook the salmon. Cook in the oven for 5 minutes, or until the salmon flesh is beginning to char.
  7. 7. Remove the pan from the oven and pour the remaining marinade over the salmon. Return the pan to the oven and cook the salmon for another 5 minutes, or until the salmon flesh has turned to a caramel brown color.
  8. 8. Once cooked, remove the pan from the oven. Baste the salmon with the teriyaki glaze in the pan and scatter with the spring onions and sesame seeds. The salmon fillets can be served right from the pan.
