Pat the salmon dry, marinate for 30 minutes, pop in the broiler for 10 minutes and you have a delicious lunch. Serve the broiled salmon teriyaki with sliced sweet mangoes on the side and the contrast in taste and texture is just amazing. For some reason, mangoes go well with ginger. I can’t explain it, I just know that the combination works.
This recipe serves one. Double, triple or quadruple if you’re cooking for more people.
