        Directions

        In a freezer bag, combine the mustard or wasabi paste, Worcestershire sauce, soy, oil, and sake and add the salmon fillets. Leave to marinate for about 20 minutes.

        Follow packet instructions for the rice, or rice-cooker handbook or just put rice in a pan, bruise cardamom pods and chuck them in too, and put double the volume of water as you have rice. Bring to the boil, then turn down to the lowest you possibly can, clamp on a lid and leave until the rice has absorbed the water and is cooked, about 15 minutes.

        Heat a smooth griddle or nonstick skillet, and cook the salmon fillets for 1 1/2 minutes on 1 side then a minute on the other side. Remove the salmon, double wrapping each fillet in foil parcels and let them rest for 10 minutes on a wooden board or a pile of newspapers.

        Bring the sake to a boil in a tiny little saucepan, like one you might melt butter in, to let the alcohol taste evaporate. Take the pan off the heat and add the other sauce ingredients.

        Unwrap the salmon fillets, removing them to a wooden board for carving as you do so.
        Arrange some freshly boiled rice on 2 plates, and slice the salmon fillets into thin slices. Lay the carved salmon on top of the rice and spoon over the sauce, letting it gloss the fish and drip here and there over the rice. Scatter the cilantro on top.

          I must say that this is one easy recipe for anyone. Since I don't get home until 6:30pm I can call my husband and have him prep the salmon and marinade. By the time I get home, start cooking the rice and salmon on the grill. I get a glass of wine and 20 minutes later dinner is done. It was light and so fantastic.
