Yes, you can… make this super easy Miso Glazed Salmon! Buy a beautiful piece of salmon (I prefer Atlantic salmon because of its fatty texture) from your fishmonger or the fish market at your local grocery store to make this recipe. Whole Foods always has the best Atlantic salmon, which is actually Norwegian salmon. The fish will literally melt in your mouth, and this fantastic marinade is perfect for this fish. Miso paste (fermented soy bean paste) whisked with mirin, rice vinegar, sesame oil, and ginger is sweet and salty and full of deliciousness in every bite! Broiling the fish browns it perfectly, but you can grill it as well. Make a little extra of the marinade to drizzle on top when serving! We like to pair this dish with our Baby Bok Choy with Ginger & Garlic and a side of sticky white rice. Soooo good!
Pop this Miso Glazed Salmon in the oven and broil for 10 minutes for a perfectly cooked piece of fish, every time!
Marinate the salmon in a plastic sealable bag for 30 minutes in the fridge. It soaks up all of the delicious flavors of the miso marinade!
Serve this beautiful dish with our Baby Bok Choy with Ginger & Garlic and a side of sticky white rice.
- In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the miso paste, soy sauce, mirin, sesame oil, ginger, pepper, and green onions until well combined. Place the salmon filet into a sealable plastic bag and pour the marinade over the salmon. Marinate the salmon in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
- Heat oven on the broil setting. Place the salmon on a foil-lined baking tray. Place on a high rack in the oven. Broil the salmon for approximately 10 minutes, or until fork tender. Watch carefully not to let the salmon burn! Garnish salmon with chopped green onions and a sprinkle of sesame seeds. Serve with a side of sticky rice, or our Baby Bok Choy with Ginger and Garlic.

Having lived in Gothenburg, Sweden for a few years definitely had its advantages. The freshest seafood from Sweden’s west coast supplied the entire country! One of my favorites to prepare was (and still is) the Norwegian salmon. It’s fatty and rich with flavor! I cooked this salmon at least twice a week, experimenting with different recipes. Here’s one of my go-to recipes. It’s incredibly simple and incredibly good! You don’t have to use Norwegian salmon, any salmon will do. I just think a fattier salmon is best (don’t worry, it’s the “good” omega fat). If you shop at Whole Foods they always have the Norwegian salmon on hand. Just ask the fish monger!
