Miso Salmon

A delicious miso glazed salmon recipe


  • 4 salmon fillets
  • 1/2 cup white miso paste
  • 3 tablespoons mirin
  • 3 tablespoons sake
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • cooking spray or vegetable oil
  • steamed rice (optional)
  • stir-fried vegetables (optional)


  • 1. In a small bowl, whisk together the miso paste, mirin, sake, brown sugar, ginger, sesame oil, salt, and pepper until well combined.
  • 2. Place the salmon fillets in a shallow dish and pour the marinade over them, turning to coat evenly. Allow the fish to marinate for at least 30 minutes or up to 2 hours in the refrigerator.
  • 3. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with foil and lightly grease it with cooking spray or vegetable oil.
  • 4. Remove the salmon fillets from the marinade, allowing any excess to drip off. Place them on the prepared baking sheet, skin-side down if your fillets have skin.
  • 5. Bake the salmon for 12-15 minutes or until it flakes easily with a fork and is cooked through. The exact cooking time will depend on the thickness of your fillets.
  • 6. Serve the miso salmon with steamed rice and stir-fried vegetables, if desired.
