2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 scallions, halved and shredded into fine strips

Recipe Directions for Mirin-Glazed Salmon

  1. Mix the mirin, brown sugar and soy sauce in a shallow dish that will hold all 4 pieces of salmon, and marinate the salmon in it for 3 minutes on the first side and 2 minutes on the second. Meanwhile, heat a large skillet on the stove.
