Miso is a fermented paste traditionally made with soybeans. There are many different types available; red miso is particularly good for this dish. Serve on a bed of brown rice with a side of braised greens.


Makes four servings

Total preparation time: Three to 24 hours marinating time and 25 minutes prep and cook time

  • 1/4 cup red miso
  • 1/4 cup mirin
  • 1 tbs. grated fresh gingerroot
  • 2 tbs. maple syrup
  • 4 6-ounce salmon fillets
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil

Mix the miso, mirin, ginger, and maple syrup in a small bowl. Spread the miso mixture on both sides of the salmon fillets, and marinate in a covered dish in the refrigerator for at least three hours (and up to 24 hours). When ready to cook, make sure the top oven rack is 4 to 6 inches away from the top of the oven, and preheat the broiler. Place the salmon on a baking sheet lightly oiled with sesame oil and broil for four to six minutes, or until the salmon is cooked through.
