Miso Salmon – again: fish and vegetables are the perfect foods for losing weight


I love this recipe. It works for me when I am watching my weight. ( I seem to ALWAYS be watching my weight – you too?)

Miso Salmon


  • 1 pound wild salmon, skin-on, cut into 4 equal portions
  • 1/4 cup white miso (available at Amazon or Asian, gourmet markets)
  • 1/2 cup mirin ( I bought this on line from Amazon Fresh who deliver in my area)
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1 scallion, green parts only, thinly sliced
  1. Directions:

    In a small bowl, combine miso, mirin, garlic and ginger. I put mine into a small pan and heated it gently then allowed it to cool completely.. This last step is not necessary but I think it did blend the flavors nicely.

  2. Miso Salmon Mirin Pour 1/4 of the marinade in a shallow dish or glass pie plate, place fish flesh-side down, and top with remaining marinade.  Place in refrigerator and allow to marinade at least 6 hours or up to overnight.  Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before cooking.
  3. Preheat oven to broil high.  Transfer fish to a sheet pan lined with foil.
  4. Discard excess marinade. ( This is important as it will be too salty – believe me – I know as I didn’t do it well the first time!)
  5.  Place fish on the second rack from the top and broil 6-7 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork. If you wish to serve the fish without the skin, carefully slide a fish spatula between the skin and flesh.
  6. Top with scallions and serve.
