This Salmon Kabayaki recipe is as easy as it gets. All you need is 4 ingredients total to create one of the best fish dishes you’ve ever had. Although kids often don’t love fish, my boys adore this and can’t get enough of it.
The word “kabayaki” is a Japanese term that refers to a special preparation for fish that often entails a sweet soy-based sauce. Since I don’t eat soy, I’ve come up with a soy-free kabayaki recipe here.
I often double this sweet and tangy fish kabayaki recipe since my boys enjoy it so much.
The first time I made this I burned the kabayaki sauce and had to toss it. The sauce was way too charred because I had left it on high-heat for too long. The next dozen times that I made it I had perfect success. Whatever you do, keep a close eye on the kabayaki sauce. It can be a bit fragile. Also, when frying the fish, be careful and keep children out of the kitchen.
