While you’re gearing up to fill your fish boxes over the summer, keep this fantastic recipe in mind for when you get home from your trip. It’s fast, easy, and a showcase for your silver salmon fillets.

The secret is in the sauce, naturally—in this case, derived from a rich teriyaki marinade spiked with Coca-Cola. The depth of flavor arises the seasoning: minced garlic and ginger laced with sesame oil, brown sugar, and rice wine vinegar.

Steps from kitchen to table? Mix the marinade in a bowl, pour it into a ziplock bag, add the salmon, refrigerate for half an hour, then whip up the sauce on the stove top and pop the fillets in a frying pan.

Once cooked to perfection, garnish with green onions and sesame seeds. Serve with fluffy white rice, lemon wedges, and a tossed green salad or stir-fried veggies. As for beverages, I tend to pair this dish with chilled sake or ice-cold Japanese beer.
