When I was growing up I always wanted Barbecue Ribs on my birthday, but my tastes gradually matured as I got older and Hibachi Steak and Salmon from our local Japanese steakhouse soon became my new favorite…served with Japanese Steakhouse Yum Yum Sauce of course.

Yes, the grilled vegetables are missing from the plate…long story, but they will get their own post in the next few days!

How to make Japanese Hibachi Steak and Salmon

Mix the marinade ingredients together in a large bowl (or large zipper top bag).

Place the steaks and salmon (flesh side down) on the hot skillet and cook until desired level of doneness.

  • Salmon: 3 minutes per side depending on thickness
  • Steak: 6 minutes on the first side, then 4 to 6 on the second side.

Pour the remaining marinade over the steaks and salmon after you flip them over to create a thick glaze.

Recipe Notes & Tips

  • This meal can also be prepared in a skillet on top of the stove, or baked in the oven.
  • To make this meal Paleo: substitute coconut aminos for the soy sauce, fish sauce for the Worcestershire sauce, and distilled vinegar for the rice wine vinegar…and add salt. Serve with Paleo Shrimp Fried Rice, minus the shrimp.
