This miso glazed salmon, cooked Asian style, is ready in 15 minutes and is probably one of the quickest wholesome dinners you can fix. Done with a minimum of ingredients, it’s easy and practically fail proof.
I really love Asian cuisines and I’m so glad we can enjoy dinners like this miso salmon. Miso paste adds a delicious and unique flavor to the fish, and brown sugar creates a wonderful glaze.
There are a few tips to share for this recipe. First, salmon cooks very quickly and it’s really easy to overdo it. The ready temperature for salmon is much lower than that for chicken or meat, about 135F, so keep that in mind if you’re using the kitchen thermometer.
When salmon is ready, it’s slightly flakey, but only slightly, and its color is changed from raw to light pink.
I’ve discovered that substituting brown sugar with honey in this recipe produces gread results as well, and I really like to do it. The glaze turns out more caramelized and flavorful. I usually garnish the salmon with sesame seeds and chopped chinese chives or green onions, but a little dill is also nice.
Serve this dish over a bed of steamed rice, with stir fried vegetables or Asian style noodles. Just follow the simple instructions below and I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!
