Description

Try this miso salmon that’s so flaky and flavorful, it’ll redefine your easy dinners! The miso glaze is the secret weapon you never knew you needed, and it’s ready in 5 minutes.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 to 1 1/2 pounds high quality skin-on salmon fillets, wild caught if possible
  • 2 tablespoons light or yellow miso
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce (or tamari or coconut aminos)
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar (or maple syrup)
  • 1/4 teaspoon Sriracha hot sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Optional garnish: Sliced green onions, sesame seeds

Instructions

  1. Let salmon rest at room temperature for 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, make the miso glaze: Whisk the miso, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sugar, Sriracha and kosher salt together in a small bowl until smooth (the miso may have a few lumps depending on its texture, which is okay).
  3. Preheat the broiler to high. Place a large sheet of aluminum foil on a baking sheet and brush it with olive oil. Pat each piece of salmon dry and place it on the foil skin side down. Brush salmon liberally with the glaze (1 to 2 tablespoons).
  4. Broil about 4 to 5 minutes for very thin salmon or 7 to 10 minutes for 1-inch thick salmon, until just tender and pink at the center (the internal temperature should be between 125 to 130°F in the center). Brush with more of the glaze and serve. Store leftovers for up to 3 days refrigerated.

Notes

If desired, you can make the miso glaze in advance and refrigerate for up 1 week. Allow to come to room temperature before using.
