This tasty Hibachi Salmon is an easy-to-make dinner that is sure to please the entire family! This is a minimal-fuss meal that literally cooks in just minutes for a fast but incredible hibachi meal! Plus this homemade hibachi entree is so much better than the Japanese steakhouse salmon!
Combine the hibachi cooking oil ingredients in a container like a squeeze bottle or jar that you can use for storage. Shake bottle or jar before using the cooking oil.
Prepare the salmon by rinsing and patting dry with paper towels. Preheat your pan, electric skillet, or Blackstone griddle to medium-high heat.
Saute the garlic and ginger in the hibachi cooking oil for 1-2 minutes, or until fragrant but not burnt. Remove the garlic and ginger.
Place the salmon flesh side down onto the preheated cooking surface with the garlic-ginger flavored cooking oil. Sear for 4 minutes.
Flip and cook the second side (skin side down) until the skin is nice and crispy. Squeeze lemon juice over the salmon fillets, then season with freshly ground black pepper.
Cook for 3-4 minutes on the second side. There should still be some pink in the salmon flesh, as the fish will continue to cook when removed from heat. Remove from heat and rest 5 minutes before serving.
