Furikake Salmon with Kewpie Mayo


  • 4 salmon fillets (about 6 oz each)
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons mirin (Japanese sweet rice wine)
  • 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons Kewpie mayonnaise
  • 3-4 tablespoons SPQR furikake seasoning
  • Cooked rice (for serving)
  • Steamed or sautéed vegetables (for serving)


  1. Marinate the Salmon:

    • In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, mirin, and honey or maple syrup. Mix well.
    • Place the salmon fillets in a shallow dish or resealable plastic bag and pour the marinade over them. Make sure the salmon is evenly coated.
    • Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, or up to 1 hour for more flavor.
  2. Preheat the Oven:

    • Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil for easy cleanup.
  3. Prepare the Salmon:

    • Remove the salmon from the marinade and place the fillets on the prepared baking sheet, skin side down.
    • Spread a thin layer of Kewpie mayonnaise evenly over the top of each salmon fillet.
    • Sprinkle a generous amount of furikake seasoning over the top of each fillet, pressing gently to adhere.
  4. Bake the Salmon:

    • Bake the salmon in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork. The cooking time may vary depending on the thickness of the fillets.
  5. Serve:

    • Serve the furikake salmon with Kewpie mayo over a bed of cooked rice with a side of steamed or sautéed vegetables.

Optional Toppings:

  • Pickled Ginger: Adds a tangy and refreshing flavor.
  • Sliced Green Onions: For a fresh, mild onion flavor.
  • Sesame Seeds: For additional texture and nuttiness.
  • Nori Strips: For extra umami.

This recipe combines the creamy, savory taste of Kewpie mayonnaise with the crunchy, umami-rich furikake seasoning, making for a delicious and easy dish that’s perfect for any meal. Enjoy!
