Salty and sweet, this miso glazed salmon is a simple but fancy-tasting meal the whole family can enjoy.
If you like Salmon, this is a recipe for you! We both love it and this just might be our new favorite way to prepare it. Our Lemon Parmesan Salmon is so good too–so it might be a toss up. I’m not sure I could pick a favorite. They are both so good, so easy, and so fast to make.
This Miso-glaze is a little bit sweet and a little bit salty and keeps the fish moist and flavorful while cooking. The end result is a beautiful caramelized glaze that will make your mouth water!
My favorite thing about this recipe is that is only requires a handful of ingredients–and with the exception of Miso-paste you likely already have all of them on hand. You can find Miso-paste at most regular grocery stores or definitely at an Asian market. If you’re having trouble, it’s typically in the refrigerated section with other specialty condiments/sauces. And once you have it you should be able to make this lots of times over!
We served it alongside this Mango rice and it was definitely hit the spot! We hope you’ll love it too!
