Lightly sweetened Asian-inspired salmon fillet, made with only 4 ingredients.
Miso Glazed Salmon is one simple meal. Not only is the marinade made with only four ingredients, but within the time it takes for your oven to warm up, your salmon will be ready to bake. To make it even easier, you only need two kitchen prep tools – one bowl and one measuring spoon. The measurements for each of the glaze’s ingredients are two tablespoons. It doesn’t get easier than that!
Miso is a traditional Japanese seasoning made by fermenting soybeans. This versatile paste adds a salty-savoury-nutty flavour. It’s commonly used in sauces, marinades, soups and even salad dressings. Whatever it touches, miso adds a salty, mouth-filling meaty taste.
If you haven’t cooked with miso before, it’s super simple. You can find miso paste in your local supermarket or at any Asian market. It’s usually found in a small tub in the refrigerator aisle. When you’re ready to use it, spoon out two tablespoons of paste, combine it with the remaining ingredients and your sauce is ready to go.
If you love Asian food, you’ll love Miso Glazed Salmon. With a combination of sweet and salty, Miso Glazed Salmon is a sumptuous, Asian-styled fish. The glaze is a combination of two sweeteners, brown sugar and maple syrup, and two Asian ingredients, miso paste and soy sauce.
Brown sugar and maple syrup add a gentle sweetness while soy sauce and miso paste add a pleasing salty flavour. The sweeteners help to temper the saltiness, without reducing the Asian essence of the glaze. Together, these flavours perfectly enhance the natural richness of the salmon and create a caramelised crust for the fish.
