This is a Japanese favorite autumn recipe for baked salmon with Yuzu-Kosho.
Autumn in the Japanese traditional calendar begins on August 7. The day is called Risshū (立秋), meaning “Rise of Autumn”.
The word for salmon in Japanese is Sake (or shake). Salmon caught in season from September to November is called Aki-sake. Out of season salmon (from May to June) is called Tokishirazu.
