Miso Salmon

Adapted from epicurious.com, and courtesy of Jenn.  This dish goes well with rice or couscous, and can also be used with chicken or tofu.


  • 4 fillets of salmon, washed and prepared (deboned)
  • 1 t oil
  • 2 T miso paste
  • 1.5 t sesame oil
  • 1.5 t fresh grated ginger
  • 1.5 t minced garlic
  • 1/2 t honey (or more, if you want it sweeter)
  • 1/4 t red pepper flakes (optional)
  • green onion and sesame seeds for garnish


  1. Preheat the oven to 200C.  Coat the bottom of a glass baking dish with a small amount of oil.
  2. Combine miso, sesame oil, ginger, garlic, honey,a pepper flakes with 1 T water in a small bowl for marinade.  (Note: I like to double the amount of marinade to give more sauce, but this is up to you.)
  3. Place salmon fillets skin-down into the baking dish, and spoon on marinade.  Bake in oven for 20-30 minutes, until the salmon flesh is firm and light pink, but not dried out.
  4. Garnish with sliced green onions and sesame seeds.
