Miso Glazed Salmon

Lookie, here we are eating more healthy for us oily fish. Though salmon cooked like this makes eating healthy easy.
#26 - Miso Glazed Salmon
We had a lot of miso left over from making soups in the last couple of weeks & since we need to get more fish in our diets Matt suggested using it in a glaze on salmon. What a good choice. The sweet & salty taste of the glaze tastes so good with the salmon and look at how beautiful it is, all shiny & brown & everything. Plus how much quicker can you get than mixing three ingredients together & then broiling a piece of fish for 10 minutes?! Broiling the salmon left it perfectly flaky & moist.

I tried an experiment with the side dish. I cooked some Kashi 7 Whole Grain Pilaf in our rice cooker & threw a knob of fresh ginger & a garlic clove in with it. I was hoping the flavors of the garlic & ginger would infuse the pilaf while cooking. Hoping is the optimal word here, the pilaf smelled great while cooking but you couldn't taste the ginger or garlic at all, bummer.

Miso Glazed Salmon

2 t red miso paste
4 t brown sugar
2 T soy sauce
2 6-oz salmon filets
chives, chopped (optional)

Heat broiler on high & set rack about 6 inches from the flame.

Mix the miso, brown sugar & soy sauce together until well blended.

Spray a little cooking spray on a baking sheet. Place the salmon on skin side down. Coat the top with some of the miso glaze.

Place on plates & sprinkle with chopped chives (optional).

I am trying this....I love salmon and it's always nice to see a simple tasty change for it.

Please tell me those are Birds Eye frozen green beans, because if you French cut all those beans, you are my hero!

kat & Matt... in a word ~ Spectacular! The simplicity, along with the miso & brown sugar makes this a terrific salmon recipe. Many thanks...

Miso glaze is so delicious! Bet this was wonderful on that salmon.

A similar glaze is also delicious on roasted sweet potatoes!

Hey, you're on the front page of Tastespotting with this photo. Looks great! I'll definitely be trying this. Salmon is something I have just about every week and I'm always looking for new ways to make it.

oooo-wee, what an awesome glaze! salmon rarely, RARELY appeals to me, but this would be fantastic. and poo--sorry your pilaf disappointed. :)

Joanne said...

The only way I've ever knowingly had miso (aside from in soup) is on eggplant...which was fantastic. But I definitely think salmon would be an even better pairing for it. Love the sweet/salty combo!

Jeff said...

It is amazing how far a little tub of miso can go. Thankfully it lasts a lifetime. Nice idea!

This recipe sounds almost exactly like the one I made from The Best of Cooking Light..
