Easy Miso Glazed Salmon

Sweet, savory, and full of umami flavoring, this Miso Glazed Salmon recipe is beyond easy to make! The yummy miso marinade is the star of this dish. This flaky salmon cooks up in under 20 minutes!

  • Total Time: 20 mins
  • Yield: 4 1x


Units Scale
  • 1 1/2 pounds fresh Atlantic salmon

For the marinade:



  1. Slice the fish into four filets. Place in a large, rectangular pyrex dish. Set aside.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the miso paste, mirin, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, ginger, pepper, and half of the green onions, until well combined.
  3. Pour 3/4 of the marinade all over the salmon, reserving the other 1/4.
  4. Marinate the salmon in the refrigerator for at lease 30 minutes, or up to one hour. Remove from the refrigerator and let it get to room temperature.
  5. Preheat the oven to 375º degrees. Place the salmon filets on a foil-lined baking sheet.
  6. Bake the salmon in the oven on the middle rack for 10 to 12 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small sauce pot, heat up the reserved marinade. Simmer on low until ready to use.
  7. Brush the salmon with more of the marinade. Turn the oven up to the broil setting and broil the salmon for approximately 2 to 3 minutes more, or until fork tender. (The internal temperature should be between 130º to 135ºF in the center.) 
  8. Drizzle the heated marinade on top of the salmon, and garnish with chopped green onions and sesame seeds.
  9. Optional: Serve the salmon over a bed of white or brown rice, and with a side of Chinese Garlic Green Beans.


  • I prefer sustainably farmed Atlantic (Norwegian) salmon, but you can definitely use wild salmon with this recipe.
  • You can also grill the salmon on high heat on a grill pan, or on an outdoor grill, for about 5 minutes on each side. Just watch it carefully to make sure it doesn't burn!
  • Any rice would be great with this dish. I used white rice, but brown rice, fried rice, or cauliflower rice would also be fantastic!
  • Rice noodles or soba noodles also make a great base for the fish.
  • Make sure to reserve some of the marinade to heat and drizzle on top before serving.
