Didi's Salmon Flakes

My sister Didi has been working on her salmon flake creation for quite awhile. She announced to us recently that she thinks she is finally satisfied with her recipe. 

You can use it as a topping on rice or tofu. She even made an omelet with it. Below is her recipe. Thanks for sharing, Didi!

salmon flakes

Salmon (Sake) Flakes

6-8 oz. salmon filet, skin on
Hawaiian salt, as needed
½ c. sake
2 TB sake
2 TB mirin
2 TB soy sauce

Salt salmon generously, allow to sit overnight. Wipe any moisture off salmon. Place in skillet over medium heat with ½ cup of sake. Simmer until no liquid remains, about 6-7 minutes. Remove salmon from skillet. Remove skin and any bones. Return salmon to dry skillet with sauce ingredients, stirring well to combine; flaking salmon. Simmer; stirring until no liquid remains. Salmon should be completely dry and finely flaked (about 10-12 minutes). Optional to cook until bits of charred salmon appear (about 15 minutes). I like it that way !
