Japanese Steakhouse Copycat Recipe
4 salmon fillets, no more than 1 inch thick
1/4 lemon, seeded
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1/2 tablespoon minced ginger
1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
2 tablespoons Hibachi Cooking Oil
In a pan over medium high heat, add the cooking oil, garlic and ginger. Saute for 2 minutes to release the flavor of the garlic and ginger. Add in the salmon top side down and sear. After 4 minutes, turn over, add fresh ground black pepper, and a squeeze of lemon.
Continue to cook for an additional 4 minutes. Remove one, cut in the center to make sure its cooked just under the way your prefer and taste. Adjust seasoning with soy sauce, lemon juice and/or fresh ground pepper. Remove from pan just before its fully cooked, and allow to sit for 5 minutes before serving. That will complete the cooking process.
