I don’t know which word I should use!!

For example, a meat/fish/chicken… stew/soup/casserole…

or "braised meat/fish/chicken…"?

What do you say this dish in everyday English?


That looks like "teriyaki". The top certainly looks like a salmon teriyaki. The sauce is slightly sweet, and gets shiny when reduced.

Food names are very culturally specific and the names for specific dishes get borrowed from one language or another. This particular borrowing comes from Japanese, but you will find that "chow mein", "bhuna" "coq-au-vin" and "sauerkraut" are all English words (borrowed from around the world)
