Several days ago, a friend of Jan’s (Jennifer Anderson) gave her three yuzu to pass on to me. Yuzu’s flavor is describes as a cross between a grapefruit and a mandarin orange. It is the key ingredient in authentic Japanese ponzu sauce. Having turned this bounty into ponzu sauce it seemed clear to me that salmon teriyaki would be a good use for it. Steamed rice and pickled vegetables are the obvious go-together for a weekend Japanese meal.

Another of my leftovers lunch recipes for one. I had about an ounce of teriyaki salmon left over from the night before, as well as some cold Japanese rice. This is a common Japanese leftovers dish, but I did not look any of them up. I just threw together what seemed reasonable to me. To go with my rice, I decided to make some teriyaki chicken wings and I threw in some Japanese pickled cucumber as my salad.
I had a craving for teriyaki salmon, but since it is a weekday I did not want to fire up the barbeque. Broiling in the oven is the obvious solution. This idea was met with cheers from my family. Steamed rice and pickled vegetables are the obvious go-together for a weekday Japanese meal.
