Miso Infused Salmon
Miso Infused Salmon is an all-time favorite. Nothing is more satisfying than the salty and subtly sweet taste of miso paired with salmon that’s perfectly moist and slightly charred.
Salmon fillet (1-inch thick)
1/4 cup miso paste (use red or blend)
1/4 cup rice vinegar
1/4 cup sake
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
1) In shallow dish, combine miso, rice vinegar, sake, light brown sugar, sugar, soy sauce and ginger to create marinade. Place salmon in dish and marinate for at least 30 minutes and up to 2 hours.
2) Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Remove salmon and shake off excess marinade. Place fish on baking dish or roasting pan lined with aluminum foil and bake for about 10-12 minutes.
3) Toast bread crumbs in non-stick pan for about 2 minutes till golden brown and then sprinkle on top of salmon about 2 minutes before fish is done. In small saucepan, warm the leftover marinade into a condensed sauce and drizzle on or around your salmon.
4) Serve with mashed potatoes and greens or over rice
