Miso Soy Glazed Salmon

Miso Soy Glazed Salmon is an easy weeknight meal salmon recipe you’ve been looking for. Quick, healthy, and flavorful meal on the table in under 40 minutes. Pretty basic ingredients that you most likely have on hand. You can find miso paste in all grocery stores, it varies from store to store where to track it down. I find mine in the tofu/fermented section in the produce department.

I’ve made this with halibut before and it’s equally as delicious but halibut can be a little bit expensive and I really only buy it when it’s in season. I try to buy salmon in season as well but it seems easier to find frozen at my local grocery store. I always buy sockeye salmon from Alaska, it has a higher oil content which makes it super delicious. It can also stand up to Asian sauces like this.

I like crispy salmon skin, I know this isn’t everyone’s cup of tea but trust me on this one. I like to sear the skin in a cast iron skillet before broiling the top in the oven. Just be careful with hot oil splatter. Always use a fish spatula to place the salmon in the pan to avoid splatter.

Serve with rice and a cucumber salad for a delicious and whole meal.

Wine Pairing Recommendation: The umami flavors in this dish will be balanced perfectly with a Pinot Blanc. Use it in the sauce too!
