One of the reasons why this blog came about was to gather all the recipes I had and used to having to write many times to share. This healthy salmon that I bring today is not mine. It is my friend's Carmen who insisted a lot on me to try it for the first time. I have repeated it a thousand times ever since then.

There are times in which we complicate ourselves in the kitchen without thinking that not always easy means no tasteless. This baked salmon with soy and miring wine is a super example of this: a fresh salmon loins marinated for a while and that is made in the oven itself!. No leftovers and always a success.

It is made with soy sauce and MirinMirin is a type of Japanese wine, a kind of sweet saki, low-alcohol, and nearly transparent amber, which is used only for cooking. There are two very different types of mirin, the mirin-fuhmi, which is synthetic, having only 1%, and hon-mirin, with 14% of alcohol and which is obtained from natural fermentation.

Used in Japanese cuisine as a condiment in many sauces, and in this case a fundamental ingredient in our recipe today. You can get it at Asian food stores and it is what we could call our wine for cooking. And today will be a main ingredient in our recipe. Here more salmon recipes.
