- 1 1/2 pounds fresh Atlantic salmon
For the marinade:
- 1/4 cup white miso paste
- 1/4 cup mirin
- 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
- 1/8 teaspoon ground pepper
- 2 tablespoons sliced green onions, divided
- Sesame seeds
- Sliced green onions
- Slice the fish into four filets. Place in a large, rectangular pyrex dish. Set aside.
- 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.
- Pour 3/4 of the marinade all over the salmon, reserving the other 1/4.
- 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.
- Preheat the oven to 375º degrees. Place the salmon filets on a foil-lined baking sheet.
- 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.
- 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.)
- Drizzle the heated marinade on top of the salmon, and garnish with chopped green onions and sesame seeds.
- 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.
