This easy salmon recipe takes a little prep, a little waiting, and just 10 minutes in the oven. The Asian flavors blend with the sweet brown sugar and can be paired perfectly with some steamed rice or vegetables like bok choy.
Total time: 35 minutes
- 1/4 cup white miso
- 1 1/2 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon mirin
- 1/4 teaspoon soy sauce
- Vegetable oil, for drizzling
- One 6-ounce fillet of salmon, skin on
- 1 stalk green onion (optional)
- Sliced ginger, to taste (optional)
Mix together the white miso, sugar, mirin, and soy sauce into a paste.
Drizzle vegetable oil over aluminum foil in a baking pan and place the salmon skin side down. Spread the miso paste over the salmon evenly and let marinate for 20 minutes.
Preheat your broiler. Scrape off the miso paste after 20 minutes, leaving a thin, even layer of miso. Broil, uncovered, for 8-10 minutes until just cooked through.
Optional: Thinly slice green onion and ginger, briefly sauté with vegetable oil on high heat, and spoon over salmon. Serve with greens and rice.
