To make the glazed salmon, cook it over medium heat for 5-7 minutes or until golden brown on both sides in a pan. Remove from pan. Add soy sauce, mirin, sake and sugar and stir over a low heat until the sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil and cook over a high heat until the sauce thickens and reduces slightly. Thereafter add the salmon back to the pan and cook until the salmon is glazed and cooked to your liking. Remove from the heat. ~ Basic Japanese Cooking.
