I was wowed by Camemberu's delicious photo of Nigella's Mirin-Glazed Salmon recipe, so I tried it out. And it turned out really well!

3 1/2 tbsp mirin
2 tbsp brown sugar
4 tbsp soy sauce
1 large salmon fillet
2 tbsp rice vinegar

1.Mix mirin, brown sugar and soy sauce in a dish and marinate salmon fillet. Meanwhile, set the frying pan on high heat.
2.Place the salmon on the pan for 2 minutes, turn over and add the marinade. Cook for another 1 minute.
3.Put the salmon onto the plate. Add the vinegar to the pan.
[I put the salmon back onto the pan again, flipping after 1/2 a minute. I removed the salmon onto the plate after a minute.]
4.Pour the glaze over the salmon and serve.

Note: I tweaked the recipe a little from the original.

Wondering what carbo I should cook to go with the salmon, I ended up making another batch of sauce and frying it with udon in some oil, and got... Mirin-Glazed Salmon Yaki-Udon!!
