Miso Glazed Pink Salmon

{miso glazed pink salmon, stir fried sugar snap peas and baked  sweet potato}
We finally got around to making some of MK's salmon (remember Lotsa Salmon post from a few days ago?}. But we didn't feel like preparing the salmon as I had mentioned in that post. Instead we were jiving a sweet miso glazed fish. So we cleaned and portioned the two large fillets that came in a vacuum sealed bag, rubbed both sides with the marinade (ingredients below) and broiled skin side up on the top rack at 500 F for about 5 minutes. Note the type of miso paste used... its a pale yellow colored miso, with a short fermentation period, mild in flavor and sweet so it's awesome for fish and veggie marination.

     Miso glaze marinade

  • 1/4 cup saikyo shiro miso paste
  • 1/4 cup mirin
  • 2 tblsp brown sugar
  • 1 tblsp sesame oil

Sides? We shared a baked organic sweet potato topped with butter and cinnamon and wok fried some sugar snap peas with garlic, salt and pepper. Dinner is served!

  1. You're so luck to be the recipient of so much fish! I'm looking forward to the variety of ways you'll be using it. And I Iove crispy fish skin.

  2. wow i gotta try this out. didn't think about trying it with a different fish. I still have the miso from when i made the seabass. think it's still good? costco no longer sell that seabass :( so it's been sitting in my fridge.

  3. I think the miso will still be good. I know... its really hard to get Chilean Seabass now. Sometimes I see it at Ranch 99.

  4. Thanks Darlene! I do feel lucky to get so much fish. Who doesn't love crispy fish skin???

  5. this looks fucking gross
