Karl’s Ponzu Salmon Teriyaki

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.

Karl’s Teriyaki Chicken Wings

I was making salmon rice for lunch, but I had very little teriyaki salmon left. I decided that I would supplement the meal with some chicken wings. A simple teriyaki sauce and sometime in the oven and presto—lunch.

Karl’s Barbecued Chicken Teriyaki II

Eilene is having friends over tonight and one of them is a picky eater. If it is not Vietnamese or sweet she will not like it. I would make pho, but it takes a long time to make the stock. Jan suggested that she would like chicken teriyaki.

Karl’s Chicken Teriyaki

When I was leaving home as a youth, this is one of the first recipes I copied out of my mother’s card file. When Dad returned from Japan in the early ‘50s, he brought back a love of all things Japanese and many Japanese recipes. Mother was making chicken teriyaki when it was still an exotic foreign food in California. When most American families were getting hamburgers and hotdogs, we were getting chicken teriyaki and rice once a week. This is one of the comfort foods of my youth.

Karl’s Salmon and Tofu Teriyaki with Six Pickles

Jan and Eilene have been on me to make meals are less heavy on the meat and starch. They want more vegetables. A simple green salad though is so boring.

Karl’s Apple Wood Smoked Teriyaki Tri-tip

Fanime is this weekend, so we have had a bunch of teenagers camped out on our living room floor. Our usual Sunday dinner got pushed to Memorial Day. Traditionally this holiday means barbecue. Jan asked for tri-tip.

Karl’s Teriyaki Sauce/ Marinade

This sauce goes well with any meat and many vegetables. If you leave out the cornstarch it is also a good marinade. This is my variation of the sauce my mother, Claudia, used in the 1950’s.

Karl’s Teriyaki Shitaki Mushrooms

Miriam and Chris love any kind of mushroom. I saw some fresh shitaki mushrooms while I was buying my Chrysanthemum greens. I decided that they would be perfect for barbecuing with my teriyaki sauce.

Karl’s Broiled Salmon Teriyaki

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.
