Recipes: Soy Sauce

Interested in some fun (and easy) recipes for Soy Sauce?

Look no further! Our resident expert, Louis, has dug up some of his favorite dishes that pay homage to Soy Sauce!

Ginger Soy Glazed Salmon


1 pound wild salmon

4 inch piece of ginger, grated

1 garlic clove, grated

1/4 cup soy sauce (low sodium)

1/2 cup red wine

1/4 cup mirin

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1/2 lime, juiced

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 scallion, minced for garnish


- Combine the soy sauce, red wine, mirin, brown sugar, garlic and 3/4 of the ginger in a sauce pan.

- Cook for 10 minutes, until it reduces by half. Remove from heat and add the remaining ginger and the lime juice. Let cool. - Rub the bottom of a baking dish with the olive oil and place the salmon in it, skin side down. Spoon a tablespoon of the glaze over the fish and wait 5 minutes. Spoon another tablespoon of the glaze over the fish. - Bake for 10 minutes at 250 degrees F.

- Spoon another tablespoon of glaze over the fish and return to the oven for another 10 minutes. Continue to do this until the fish is cooked to medium (internal temperature 155 degrees F).

- Garnish with the scallion and serve.

Soy Sauce Buttered Popcorn


1/3 cup popcorn kernels

2 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons coconut oil

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1 teaspoon garlic salt (optional)

1 teaspoon Sriracha (optional)

3 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese (optional)

toasted sesame seeds (optional)


- Pop your popcorn however you like: My favorite method is to air-pop it in a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan with a lid.

- Heat the pan over medium-high heat and add 3 kernels. Once the test kernels pop, add the rest of the kernels, reduce the heat to medium, and shake constantly until the kernels all pop (or until there are a few seconds between each pop).

- Melt together the butter and coconut oil, then whisk in the soy sauce. Whisk in any extra mix-ins, as I listed above (Sriracha, garlic salt, and Parmesan cheese). Another excellent topping is a few tablespoons of toasted sesame seeds.

- Pour the soy sauce butter over the popcorn and toss to coat.
