Ingredients for Honey Miso Glazed Salmon

I cook with fresh produce from my garden and from Misfits Market– they sell fantastic fruit, vegetables, & pantry staples at a discounted price. We get Misfit boxes every other week and love picking out seasonal produce for delivery. Get $10 off your first box by clicking here!

  • Salmon Filets – you can use fresh or frozen salmon for this recipe. I like to use fresh salmon for my recipes (we have fantastic fish markets here in New England!) but if you use frozen, then make sure to thaw before cooking.
  • Light Sweet Miso Paste – I love this light and sweet miso paste, I keep a few packs in my pantry for recipes when I want to add a little umami flavor in a pinch. Miso is a paste made from lightly fermented soy beans, and adds the perfect amount of flavor to this salmon!
  • Soy Sauce or Tamari: tamari is a gluten-free version of soy sauce. Tamari has a bright salty flavor, and adds a really nice depth of umami to this dish. If I am cooking for a crowd, I always use this tamari in my recipes just in case anyone at the table has a gluten allergy, so everyone can enjoy this meal.
  • Rice vinegar: I love this sweet & tangy rice vinegar, I always keep this vinegar stocked in my pantry for dressings and glazes.
  • Honey – you could also use brown sugar or other natural sweetener if desired.
  • Toasted Sesame Oil: The sesame oil gives the perfect savory flavor. Toasted sesame oil is great paired with the sesame seeds in this condiment.
  • Garlic
  • Sesame Seeds
  • Lime

How to Make Miso Salmon Without Sake or Wine

  1. Preheat your oven (or grill, if using) to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Cover a baking sheet pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Check your salmon filets for bones, and remove any. Place the salmon skin-side down on the baking sheet.
  3. In a mixing bowl, add the miso paste, soy sauce (or gluten free tamari), rice vinegar, honey, toasted sesame oil, and minced garlic. Whisk well to combine until all the miso paste has dissolved.
  4. Using a silicon brush, brush the miso glaze over the salmon. Allow salmon to sit for 5 minutes, then brush the glaze on the salmon again.
  5. Bake (or grill) salmon for 8 minutes, the remove from the oven and glaze again. Bake the salmon for an additional 6-10 minutes, or until salmon reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit in the thickest part of the meat.
  6. Remove from the oven, brush the glaze over the salmon one last time, and top with sesame seeds and freshly squeezed lime juice. Serve hot.
  7. Store leftovers in an airtight container for up to 2 days.
