Quick and delicious salmon doesn't get much easier. Adjust cooking times according to the thickness of the the salmon. The glaze works great on other dishes as well (broccoli, eggplant, pork, etc...). If you don't have sake, there are a few substitutes, but none we personally like as well. Mirin, dry vermouth, maybe a dry white wine would work in a pinch instead of the sake. Serve with shredded cabbage, rice, cooked whole grains (farro would rock with it), or anything else you might like to eat alongside the salmon. If cooking in a non-stick or ceramic pan, you can use less oil to sear the salmon.
